Sunday 23rd July - Brief Rain Shower

I arrived at the plot just as the rain started and sat in the greenhouse to watch. Some of the cherry tomatoes are starting to ripen and I couldn't resist gorging on a few.

Did you know that The largest tomato plant grown, was of the cultivar Sungold and reached 19.8 m (65 ft) length, grown by Nutriculture Ltd (UK) of Mawdesley, Lancashire, UK, in 2000?

Great blog! I love your facts as well as your own diary. Found another good allotment blog that you may wish to add to your list. I found it along with Dig For Victory, which is excellent.

It certainly is hot, the local farmers are saying that the harvest is a month earlier than usual.
