Allotment Adventures: Alas, tomatoes, we hardly knew you

We’re having a cold snap this week, so at the weekend, I said goodbye to the majority of the tomatoes. It was time, the weather hasn’t been helping and so many of them were splitting and ruined, so we took all the bigger ones out. Ma wanted to give her cherry tomatoes another week so I let her and the tumbling tom and one of the plants in the polytunnel remain.

Empty tomato beds

So there are green tomatoes everywhere and three empty beds. We also took all the lazy housewife beans in for drying. The gigantes are still green so they hang on but the weather is colder and things are dying, except for the weeds, they continue.

I got to the grass under the plum tree, it’s not finished but I made a dent and Ma collected produce and watered things, we are getting rain but not loads.

I know it doesn’t look like much but there was grass all the way to the edge of the flower bed

Ma and I also fixed the covers on the cauliflower and kale and brussels sprout beds. It’s all ok, but there is lots of tidying to do, we’ll get there.
