I’m joining Julie at Peonies and Posies (rather late) to share what’s going on in my greenhouse this month.
And lastly, the only large tomato this year has been Ferline. This is better tasting than I thought initially when I ate the first one a month ago, so I may grow this one again, but I’m certainly open to suggestions for alternative larger/cooking tomatoes to try.
As well as the tomatoes, I’m growing Cucumber La Diva. These are supposed to be mini ‘cigar’ sized cucumbers, but I’m not a huge cucumber fan and so they tend to get left on the vine, and then grow to much larger proportions:
and my aubergines, Aubergine Kaberi. I haven’t yet harvested any, and whilst they’re definitely getting bigger, I’m not convinced they’re actually ripening, but I can wait….
And lastly, at my ‘potting shed’ end of the greenhouse, I’m afraid all my biennials – wallflowers and stocks, are still waiting to be planted out – and are definitely suffering for the neglect. Tsk tsk!
With regard to future plans, I don’t suppose the veg will continue for too much longer and then I will need a good clear out. And at that stage I’m wondering about trying the early sweet peas Julie had success with in her greenhouse last year.
The only problem is, if I fill the greenhouse ful of sweet peas, where am I going to put all my tender plants?
