The tomatoes in the potting shed are starting to ripen, it’s only been 7 1/2 weeks since they were planted out and they’re good to be eaten.
It’s been a while, but here are a couple of video updates (one from the allotment and one from the potting shed).
A quick video update from the potting shed on how the tomatoes are doing.
It’s been over a month since I last made a video at the allotment. Mostly this is because I wasn’t able to get down to the plot with my camera when it wasn’t raining, but things have really moved on.
Short video post from the allotment.
This is the first update from the potting shed for 2017. My tomatoes are out in their final growing spots, a little earlier than I would have liked, but they were getting leggy and needed to go out, but they are just putting out their first flowering spikes so it’s about the right time from that point of view. Also a quick peek at some of the other seeds that I’ve got germinating.
I’ve been trying to capture a video of the starlings in our garden “eating” from our mealworm feeder – decimation would be a better adjective as they can empty it in minutes. I’m not sure whether this is deliberate to share the worms with their fellow birds or whether it’s just a consequence of their rather mad feeding behaviour on the feeder.
There are often three or four on the feeder, but this is a small proportion of the total flock of around 15 birds. The remainder are on the ground under the feeder, hoovering up the fallout.
Hope you enjoy the video, which is a series of clips edited together.
