done and dusted

Today dawned a miserable and wet, so I set-to inside the greenhouse. I removed another small wooden bench from the right hand side and spaced the tomatoes out. I am not very enthusiastic about pinching out so they were all given a good (and overdue) pruning, which I must keep up with daily now. The two tomato plants on the bench are bush tomatoes and aren't going to grow as tall so they should be fine. All the peppers, cucumbers, egg plant and basil were potted on into a fine collection of large used pots recently donated by a kind friend. The floor was swept clean and all used pots, seed trays and drip trays are waiting to go into the bath to be washed.

Claire, your greenhouse and the plants in it are looking so beautiful. Good for you. It must take a lot of work.

I'd think you would be aching by now with all that.

Thanks for signing the guest book and glad you could figure it out.

You are so fortunate to have a greenhouse. It looks so organised and your plants look really healthy. Soon you will be harvesting some fresh veggies.

Alice, glad to have finally tidied it up!
Granny, a hot bath soon cured any aches!
Sara, I often have tomato plants that look great, I've never quite pinned down how to get a brilliant crop though, maybe one day!
Kate, I do love having the greenhouse, its been hard this year with all the broken glass happening.
Tia, you are very welcome!
