Got my tomatoes in the ground today. I'm almost a full month later at doing this task than last year! It's been so slow to warm up.
Tomatoes are going at the front of the greenhouse border and courgettes and Turk's Turban squashes will go at the back, when it's warm enough. There are also 3 Cobaea planted at the back for shading and general appearance.
I rigged up some bamboos, secured with fishing line, for each of my 12 border tomatoes. The ones in the borders will tend to do a lot better than the plants in pots.
The line up from front to back - Reis, Reis, Black Krim, Black Krim, Oregon Spring, Alaskan Fancy, Peace Vine, Suncherry (from collected seed) and then, courtesy of Mr Chilipepper, Costoluto F, Red Cherry, Brandywine & Amish Paste.
I also potted on all of my other 31 tomato plants, also in the greenhouse. The Siberian ones are doing particularly well and I am looking forward to an early harvest from them.
