I lack knowledge in the horticultural department (oo-er!), so this is my meager contribution to this thread - a Japanophile's attempt at cultural reference:

(For some reason the Japanese seem to like "the unexplained" in their photos!)

As for ghosts, my house is haunted. We have 2 ghosts, a lady in blue at the front of the houe and and stable boy at the back of the house (my house is 200ish years old) Neutral

Here is the first tomato flower Very Happy (i'm using this emoticon as there isn't a smug one yet)

I've spent another afternoon in the garden (was going to be the morning but a neighbour had a massive bonfire and the smoke was blowing straight into my garden :sick: )

I re-potted the tomatoe plant i am growing in the dinning room. It had completely out grown it's 6" pot so i've put it into an 8" one (biggest one i could find lying round that would fit inside.

I've put 2 plants outside in a massive ceramic pot.

I've planted out 2 more dwarf plants in a 12" pot. The 2 in the hanging basket are doing ok, but the 2 already in another pot seem to be dying a bit. I think the strong sun the last few days was too much for them.

2 of the tomato plants in the growbags behind the garage have died. I've put my biggest and bushiest (not tallest but has most branches and leaves) in the place of the 2 that died.

I found a catipillar on one of the leaves of a tomatoe plant planted along the side of the house Surprised . it had eaten half a leaf, and stuch the other half to form a tube. I picked off this leaf and chucked it into a clump of weeds the other side of the garden.

I planted out the last of my french beans.

The basil has started to sprout (well 2 out of the 10 seeds i planted)

None of the marigolds have sprouts so i've scattered seeds around the garden and in a couple of pots (odd's are some should germinate, hopefully :inno: )

Look who hopped over to see me while I was gardening (hopped onto my foot)

And i've found my garlic Very Happy . I planted some garlic cloves last summer. We had the garage re-built and the pots my garlic were in got lost. Well today i found 2 of them. The garlic had been knocked out and was just lying in another empty plant pot so I re-planted it. The bulbs are the size of a small onion, it had a few roots and a shoot that was a few inches long (even though it wasn't in any soil or getting any light). I've put the re-potted garlic in a slightly sheltered area to begin with, but will move it into direct sun when it is a little stronger.

There was a big fish in the sea,
That ate swimmers and small fish for tea.
He grew quite tremendous,
But his end was horrendous . . .
?twas another fish bigger than he (he he)

tomorrow i will have to put up more pics.

I was given a 'growbag greenhouse' today Very Happy . It is a small plastic greenhouse big enough to hold one growbag. So i put out 3 plants in that, and three more on the wall next to the rest. I also put out one of the larger potted ones from the room next to mine (it is too big for the windowsill).

Now i have only 5 plants in my room Very Happy . I don't need the extra table in front of the window Smile . I feel like i have just got my room back.

Though the basil isn't doing well so i've bought some new seeds, i will plant them when i get a chance (tomorrow or more likely monday)

you are a plant mutilator

is it ok to cut their growing tips? some plants will stop growing! but presumably you've read it up somewhere so i'll shut up

ps - i see your luffy avatar for you now


yay, my new avatar is working Very Happy

Any way, cutting of the growing tip to stop growth is the whole point. My indoor tomatoes are huge, they are filling all the space i have, they are too tall, they now have to be put infront of french doors as they are too big for any windows (between 3 and a half feet and 4 and a half feet tall)
i've begun to try to polinate the tomato flowers. i've tried increasing humidity and shaking breaches lightly, (and also putting my elec toothbrush to the stem and using the vibration). Fingers cross something works :inno:

I've planted more basil seeds, i'm hoping at least a few of them germinate. :inno:

The forest (army) of tomato plants outside are growing nicely, but they take loads of water. Good job I live at home and don't pay the bills.
So far I have had no luck with the marigolds (I might have to buy plants from the garden centre, I hoped to grow every thing from seed but that isn't working :down: )

The garlic, while still a bit pale is growing slghtly.

The beans are looking a bit yellowish but are sprouting loads of new leaves. I might look into it, but when i look for problms i tend to find many things to become paranoid about Neutral .

ours are doing nicely but we're going to have to get bigger pots. I know what you mean about how much water they use - hate to imagine how much you're using if our little offerings are anything to go by....

On a sunny day with no rain (and it is still early on, my plants still have alot of growing left to do, and the weather is suppose to get sunnyer) my 12 litre watering can isn't enough Neutral . It takes 2 trips. But that is for 24 tomato plants, 7 french beans, 2 garlic and 2 strawberries. Though soon I will also have some marigolds and basil to worry about also.

One thing I have noticed is that the plants are growing much slower outside than they were inside. This is probably due to the colder weather, but as I started so early in the season it really isn't a problem. And they are still growing, just slower (but with one of the indoor ones already being 4ft, i couldn't cope if they were all that big yet)

I've still got 8 plants indoors (though 2 are dwarf, 1 is the top of one that got blown of my windowsill by the wind (the very top was salivigable and has grown a small root stock, but it wilts very easily in direct sun still and need alot of attention) 1 small but very healthy little one and a recently germinated one (I wanted to see how they grow when planted later in the season, how spindley they would start off etc and if they got big enough to produce a reasonable crop compared to those planted earlier). Then there is my three beasts that are growing very rapidly (the one that is 4ft can grow up to 1 inch on a sunny day Surprised )

Well my kite (growbag greenhouse) was off again today Rolling Eyes . It cleared a 6ft wall, well most of it, it did leave a trail of poles from the base and the growbag to where it ended up. The plants are not much more damaged since it's last escape (thankfully). I've re-sited it and have tried to anchor it further. Neutral

I've been pruning side shoots and further securing the plants while dealing with the kites escapade.

when the wind next gets up you gotta film it just for us to see - it sounds amazing it can get such lift.

you should put your name and address on it and see how far it gets before someone returns it like they do with those balloon release competitions Laughing
