bring me sunshine
I hope everyone is enjoying the sunshine that I ordered yesterday. I'm on tomato watch, and no its nothing to do with Bill Oddie. No I am watching and waiting for the first red tomato. Oh no its just started raining and I've washed towels too!! Its my daily ritual to wander down to my veggies to see whats going on and to check out my tomatoes. I lost all my tomatoes last year to blight which affects tomatoes as well as potatoes as they are from the same family.
Here are just some of my 37 leeks that I'm hoping will see me through the winter unlike my gigantic squash plant which is yet to fruit!
Will someone tell mr and mrs puffball that its not autumn yet!!
Lastly, can anyone tell me what this plant is sneaking through the fence? I think its random turn up is just lovely, is it some kind of clematis?
