Beautiful blooms!

Happy Friday!
What a lovely way to have spent Friday afternoon into early evening. I've had a couple of hours in the greenhouse planting up the tomatoes into their final resting spot for some. Others that were planted later have gone into the middle size pots and will go into their buckets in a few weeks. They were all planted with half manure half compost from Tesco and had a good feed with Tomatorite. I love the smell of the tomato plants, it makes me think we might actually get a harvest!
My lovely Dad spent an hour digging over the dreaded stony veg bed. It's still in huge chunks but makes life easier for me tomorrow digging it down further.
We had a dead pheasant in the woods today which is the third unexplained death around here. Firstly was Mr Fox, secondly was a rabbit in the middle of our drive and today a pheasant. None of which had any marks to suggest how they died!
We had a wander around the small holding tonight and took in the prettiness around us. The fruit trees are in bloom, the bluebells out and life couldn't be better. Have a lovely weekend everyone.

  1. I did my toms a couple of weeks ago and they have grown so quickly. I still have 8 smaller ones to repot.

    1. I'm getting there, only a few to pot up now, slowly getting there. I'm not worried if they're slightly behind as it may stop the glut that I read about in so many blogs.

  2. My toms a pleading with me for larger pots, but the new poly tunnel will be ready in a couple of days so they will get planted there :-)

    1. I can't wait until I have a poly tunnel!! So exciting! Waiting until I can get a decent one which won't be any time soon though. Veg plot and green house this year and next year I think.
