Re: First home grown lunch of the year

Today is one of those awkward situations that only we who grow our own veggies experience. My French beans have started producing and I have the grand total of THREE beans ready to pick. If I leave them they will be old and tough before there's any more, so tonight's dinner will be stir fried veg co...

You're a time traveller :shock:
Now that's quite a skill, I can only manage travelling to the future .. one day at a time.

Good luck on semi-retirement

Re: Tomato plant size

It depends where your salad table is ( I presume outdoors) and where you live (town or country) Temperatures may have been like summer recently but night time temperatures have been quite low, and tomatoes don't like overnight temperatures below about 10c. They will survive but not thrive. I wouldn'...

Re: Brits banned from overseas hotels...

Yes I read that too. Apparently the Spanish laws are so lax you only have to prove that you bought stomach upset tablets to show that you were suffering from food poisoning.

Re: Tomato trial results

Sounds like silvery fir are the ones for us - if only we could get them to fruit! You may be interested GA, out of all the plants that I have, Stupice is the ONLY one to have any sizeable fruit so far. Plus that one is in my small aluminium greenhouse. The plants in the conservatory are 2 - 3 times...

Re: Tomato trial results

I wouldn't mind an Aspidistra if there's enough. It's all change here again, but I now have a conservatory back and apart from 4 tomato plants, it's going to be purely flowers and non-edible plants. Thanks for the offer of your Oddo, DnD, that would be great, but if you still have seed that would do...

Re: Tomato trial results

Unfortunately the varieties mean nothing to me, if they exist in Oz they have other names. You might recognise a few on that list above,Weedo. One you should recognise is "Tommy Toe" which was voted Australia's best tomato one year, unfortunately my notes say, "fruit rather small and...

Re: Tomato trial results

Can you collate these to tastiness Indeed I can, I keep tasting and cultural notes for every tomato variety I've grown in the last 10 years, in the vain hope that I will settle on "preferred varieties" like I have with most of the other veg varieties that I grow. Some hope .. :lol: My lis...

Re: Tomato trial results

I was looking through my garden diaries and compiled a list of tomato varieties that I've grown and noted for their earliness. The times are from sowing germinated seed in February, to picking first ripe fruit. Bear in mind that they were all different years and so the weather probably had some bear...

Re: Walnut tree

Well yes and no, Flo. I do like the tree for what it is, but I planted it at the top of what is now my apple orchard, and the closest trees suffered as the walnut spread it's branches. In the 8 years that it was producing masses of female flowers without any males it was threatened many times with t...

Re: Walnut tree

An old post I know. I was mistaken last year and the tree DIDN'T have a male catkin, or if it did it fell off immediately. BUT ... this year I can see loads of male catkins all over the tree, so maybe I just might have some nuts this year :cheers: Not bad after waiting over 18 years and at least 8 y...
