Not been to the plot today as I was looking after poorly grandson so hubby saw to the chickens & watered the tunnel, I feel a bit bereft that Iíve not been  :lol: After grandson was collected by mummy I went out into the garden & washed last years tomato pots & any others lying around after having a good tidy in the greenhouse yesterday.
Yesterday I emptied said greenhouse (again) & spread 22 bags of gravel on the floor after years of making do with a black membrane lining. I was always going to grow in the borders over the winter but never really got to grips with it & now Iíve got Tilly the tunnel I really wonít need to. Looks lovely now .
I can now pot on the tomatoes into their final pots & placings plus some aubergines,peppers & chillis & get rid of the spares as the tunnel has got plenty as I did them on Tuesday

Snowdrops, that looks tidy!

As for me, the daffodil and hyacinth bed in the front garden was showing the effects of rain gradually eroding and moving soil downslope, so I bought one ton of compost and spread about half of that on that bed, a quarter on some worn areas in the lawn, and stockpiled another quarter for later use on the vegetables. Bargain $ 20 (£ 14) for all that compost, made and tested by our city.

Also watered, squashed as many flea beetles as I could on the eggplants, picked peas (still producing in the 30+ C heat).

Evacuated pretty dam quick. Our allotments was suddenly invaded by a massive swarm of bees. Got out of there very quickly  :D

Well crops growing nicely, although not as many flowers on my tomato plants as i'd like. So its weeding and watering at the moment!
Cheers

My deer fences around last year's beds, and my new beds, needed mending. So I did that today. 

Also, we are expecting 5 cm or more rain to come in with a tropical storm, so I may be tying up some plants in advance of the weather.
