Just a few weeks ago when the first tomato plants began arriving at the garden centre I brought some home, potted them up into larger pots and settled them onto the windowsill in my living room.
The east-facing windows in this room are huge and the plants have grown well, perhaps too well!
I’m still afraid to put them out into my unheated greenhouse because the nighttime temperatures have dipped well below the recommended minimum 10 celsius.
The problem is that those tomatoes are getting huge. One of them, the Black Cherry grew so tall that I had to stake it a few days ago. Several of the plants are blooming already, and that precocious Black Cherry has even begun to set fruit!
It had better warm up soon…
