I've started to plant out my tomato seedlings.
This year I have grown five varieties from seed, my Ian's Red Cherry, Veeroma and Golden Sunrise, all from seeds I saved last year, and Marmande and Moneymaker from seeds I bought.
I'm also hoping to get a couple of varieties from a neighbour who has promised to bail me out with a couple of the varieties that got eaten in my mouse invasion.
Last year, I was very pleased with my new spiral tomato stakes and have put them in the ground again this year
I've also laid in a sprinkler hose under the straw so that when I turn on the tap the ground gets soaked, but not much else.
Now, the beds are prepared and the little seedlings are big enough to plant out, so I put the first four varieties in the ground and was rewarded with two days of light rain.....
