My regular visitors know that I am a bit of an urban gardener - I love growing salad greens & other little bits. I think the joy of actually getting some thing homegrown is half the thrill & it just makes us connect to the soil & keeps us grounded.
I bought 4 tomato plants in the sale section at the local garden centre some weeks back - they were not too big but healthy looking so I thought - why not?
They were potted in to a trough which was placed next to the side of the conservatory where it is sheltered & warm.
They have muddled along & suddenly there is a spurt of growth & energy with some flowers & some tomatoes at last!
I popped a soft cherry tomato in the soil & that has spouted all the little ones seen at the bottom of the trough ...
Even though they are still small & green, I have enjoyed watching them through the conservatory window & am hopeful to get a small crop by the end of summer.
Does anyone else grow a few bits on in summer? I shall soon have to think of something for my covered troughs for winter as the salad greens have been so brilliant over the summer ...
Thanks for stopping by & sharing your stories,
