but since Id already potted them into the pots the other day I had to find other means of attaching the strings to the pots/ plants as opposed to planting the string under the plant  :unsure:
I use membrane pegs / tent pegs pushed in next to the toms - they're small enough not to damage too many roots, once you start to tie in the plant weight will keep the string tight anyway so it's not really needed.  ;)

Thanks Lards, be used the tent peg method for runner beans before now, :) I actually tied some strings around the edge of the pots, some to the actual stem of the plant & some through holes that we made in the pot rim for this purpose some years ago (plastic flower buckets from supermarkets).

Watered and tied in the toms.  The left hand side of the GH which I think ::) are the sungold  are just forming their first trusses and needed side shooting,  nothing yet on the right hand side toms. The cukes are very much sulking across the gable end, they appear healthy enough just slow to grow.

Watered and fed the toms, everything appears to be fine but other than the lettuce you'd be hard pressed to tell anything was actually growing.  ::)

Watered and side shooted the toms, the lettuce is growing well but everything else is about as enthusiastic to grow as I am about doing my tax return  ::)

Opened the door - ate a few of the physalis which were still hanging around and decided I did't feel like wresting with all the furry tomato plants and closed the door again.  :nowink:  Much the same as I do round about now every year.

I have that feeling as well, the glass ones are now clean and tidy, but the plastic Norfolk one is furry and green  ::) :ohmy:

had a  day tidying up the potting shed in prep for the spring sowings leaving the main greenhouses for the time being as we have some plants under cover and its not that warm in the cold greenhouses yet

not sure if this weather's going to bring on an early spring here ? so we are keeping things under wraps to see if the weather changes there's still time to get a  a cold spell?

apart from that every things ready to start in the potting shed now trays pots modules compost but I'm not getting  to hasty there's time enough  :D

The sun came out so I finally summoned the energy to start cutting down the furry tomato stems and the dried out physalis from the bottom greenhouse.

Looks like either Mickey or Rodney has been living in there over winter so I'll need to deal with that sooner rather than later. I need to clear out the stuff I've been keeping which might be useful, as there are lots of plant pots with odd bits of string, wire, clips, pegs and label in. It needs a bit of general maintenance now, some pointing and the guttering need sorting but after a good wash things should be ready for another season  :)

Well done Lardman for making a start, same as me last Thursday & boy did it feel better, so much that today I ventured to finally get the seeds out, sowed 2 types of aubergine, of chilli & 2 of sweet peppers. Better late than never  :lol:. Was going to do the tomatoes but got called away to collect from play school  :unsure:
