Just had to show you the Tomatoes I picked last night…..and Milly’s big head as she just had to check out what was happening.
The bushes are absolutely loaded with fruit but there aren’t any new flowers forming. A friend said he had the same thing happening to him. Lots of fruit but no new flowers.
I have watered them well and poured lots of worm wee tea on them (last night) in the hope that it might help.
Any other suggestions? All ideas gratefully received and will be trialled.
Now because this is a warts and all blog I shall confess something.
There was a hissing sound in the pantry last night and today James discovered what it was.
Two of the jars of Fruit salad that I had preserved in the microwave hadn’t sealed properly – despite the lids being on tight and sitting them upside down to check for leaks as the book suggested.
Takeing the lids off I was greeted with a strong smell of fermenting liquid – not unpleasant I have to say. The contents of those bottles went to the chooks – who James was very quick to inform me – loved their impromptu feed.
Could it be I now have slightly drunk chooks in my hen house?
I’m not sure what I did wrong and I can see further experimentation is called.
