I think we might be in for a hot dry February and we are going away for 2 weeks so imagine I will come back to a scorched garden with most things dying off. Hoping to find someone to look after the tomatoes so at least the last of the crop will be saved and used.
I try to let one lettuce go to seed and just leave it without collecting the seed. I always get lettuces pop up the following spring.
Pam, have you thought about leaving one lettuce in and letting it go to seed which can be saved and used next season?
Pam - sounds like you have a productive little garden - it is amazing what you can grow in a small area. I usually only plant 3 dwarf bean plants at a time as they are very productive. A soaker hose is a great way to keep the ground moist at all times.
and Hi Pam, its been a funny year I think, but at least I don't have to water!
Yes Rex, I also got an albany grape that turned out to be niagra...you wonder how they can muck that sort of thing up really.
I can't grow strawberries, get the odd one but I crave buckets full
my tomatoes are growing great in the glasshouse, although a lot fo the flowers have wizened without pollinating.
we have had great weather for starting off the winter greens, not summery more like autumnal!
