Very bad year for tomatoes and onuons!
« on: July 11, 2011, 21:54 »
We planted about 100 onion plants, all bar 10 were male. The first lot if tomatoes I planted rotted due to 3 weeks of heavy rain, so we replanted. These plants are rubbish, we have loads of green shield bugs, so the toms are nibbled and going bad so , 1 tom for me and 3 for the hens!  My aubergine plants are ok, so are the peppers and melons. I even have 4 pumpkin, on a plant that self seeded, so at least something is good.  I will be buying tomatoes to bottle this year!

I'm not good, I'm not bad - I'm just me, and sometimes I have to apologise for that ;)

Sorry, I should say gone to seed, here in Spain they call them macho as the new flower shoot looks like  a male appendage :lol:

This is the first year my Swiss Chard has started going to seed so soon.
Usually it stays in right through the winter and gives me a spring crop.
Ho hum! More to sow......
And the peppers, chillies, cucumbers are all still small and weather damaged, although I can see signs of a growth surge it's probably too late now! :(
It's been a funny year.
Good for fruit though!!
