My poor abused lawn mower made it through once again. This was almost two weeks ago, and guess what - I'll need to cut it again this weekend. At least it's not going to be a complete nightmare.
You may have noticed at the back that there is a bag of compost with three tomato plants in it
which I managed to salvage from the overgrown weedfest that is the right, formerly vegetable border.
Three tomato plants were put in there, I can't even remember when, as a sort of temporary stopgap before I figured out which pots to seperate them into. It never happened. This is, of course, not ideal to have three plants in one pot. I trimmed them and tied them up as best I could, but I'm not holding out a lot of hope. There is some fruit forming. I am also nurturing them with this
fantastic stuff (fingers crossed) - no mixing in a watering can and then schlepping said watering can over to the tomatoes up at the back. Life (certainly time) saver! Found it at Poundland (Pound Stretcher? The Pound Shop? No, I think it was Poundland).
Time will tell. The best thing I did out there was this:
marguerites for Marguerite.
