After my Yellow Stuffers and then my first lot of Heirloom Tomatoes (Marmande, Green Zebra, Berner Rose and Costoluto), there were just four more plants to move over (2 x Tigerella and 2 x Potiron Escarlate).
In addition, I took up a special offer I received by Email from Dobies of Devon for Crimson Crush Tomato Plants. (Received 22/05) paying only postage (£4.99), they offered three plants to grow. They claim:
“We want as many customers to try Crimson Crush tomatoes this year, so for this bank holiday weekend only, you can order 3 Crimson Crush plants and just pay postage, we do have extremely limited stock, order now so you don’t miss out… As well as its ability to shrug off even the worst tomato blight, Crimson Crush will provide great yields of exceptionally fine tasting, large, round tomatoes (each weighing up to 200g)… Bred for outdoor growing, but also fine for indoor, it’s the blight tolerant tomato that everyone should be planting this year.”
I will have to see how blight resistant the plants are, now that they have been planted in the middle of an Onion Raised Bed.
Rust is spreading on my Garlic and onto my Onions.
Having grown from seeds, the American Gherkin plants have now been hardened off and moved to the Allotment. They have been placed into an former potato bed, next to a Mange Tout.
Pulling up my Garlic (Early Purple Wight) which have swelled well. Need to clean them up and dry them out a bit.
