I've been a bit lax on this blog recently as the motivation to do it has been lacking due to things happening in my life...
But I have still been doing bits and bobs around the garden and maintaining the plants (which are growing well).
I'll try and get a full photo shoot done this evening (if it isn't pissing it down) and update later with how everything is coming on, but this post is a quick update about the tomato plants.
They FINALLY have flowers!
The plants outside are behind the ones inside (obviously) so this post is entirely about the inside plants.
Another thing that I have been doing is pruning the plants; removing the suckers that grow in the crooks between main trunk and branch.
You do this to keep the main trunk strong, avoid nutrients, water and sugar being diverted away from the fruits, and to stop the plant becoming "bushy".
I have had reports from some people who I gave plants to that they are seeing fruit developing already; how jealous am I! Fingers crossed the sun comes out and these plants accelerate again and produce a good crop of tasty tomatoes.
