10th August

The tomatoes are ripening well, helped by the removal of side shoots and lower leaves, and for the very tall plants, extra tying to supports.

Companion planting can prove beneficial, seen here where marigolds are growing next to tomatoes.

Pumpkin plants are being pruned to ensure goodness is directed to the pumpkins.

Little “critters” (slugs/snails) have enjoyed the dwarf French bean leaves but the beans themselves are fine.

As always, the coffee break is welcome, as is the baking.

And at the end of the morning’s work, today’s colourful harvest is shared.
