I did a spot of potting on in the greenhouse this afternoon.
I noticed flowers on my edible physalis (cape gooseberry) and sweet peppers. One sweet pepper plant has even set a small fruit.
The Beef Tomatoes are the first to set fruit. That's them in the photo. Can't wait to get my teeth into that! Did a bit of spraying the tomato flowers with a mist of water to assist in fertilisation. Still manually fertilising courgettes on a daily basis.
Can't seem to get rid of the greenfly. They love the courgette flowers and it is very hard to spray all around them without breaking something. I've sprayed three times now and was disgusted today to find a greenfly on my aubergine plants, on the other side of the greenhouse.
There is obviously something about my personality that attracts greenfly. They are the bane of my gardening life! They are even on my Rosa Rugosa this year and I thought the extra cold winter would have helped to knock them for six!
