tom tom, tomato club

Re-potted the tomato's at the weekend. I noticed Monty Don doing this on Gardeners' World, only he advised not to touch the plants stems, oops.

Managed to escape the city for a few days by spending it in Devon and Totness. Even paddled my feet in the see.

The allotment

Chitin potatoes

strawberry patch

magic beer tree. Hop plants

potatoes are in

Frog spawn

Corn on the cob


Entering the second year of the allotment, No 88 aka Indie Farm. Planted some tomato and corn seeds on the window sill at home and also chitted some potatoes. Whilst up the allotment I re-planted some strawberries, popped in the first wave of potatoes and noticed that there's frog spawn in the mini pond. Going by Gardeners' World  frogs are a good thing, so lets hope those little fellas do okay. Good to see the hop plant making an appearance too.

"Just open your ears and follow your nose" Denmark Street

   Cross rail, slowly strangling the London landscape but hey, making it much more easier to get from one  mindless shopping mall to another. Denmark Street, where once my Dad's band bought a load of Fender guitars courtesy of Decca and Larry Parnes. The Kinks even wrote a song about the place Denmark Street . Let's hope it survives the chop, here's a Facebook page with more details.
