Autumn is here...kind of!!!

Well it's been a while since my last post and I feel kind of bad for being so neglectful as I do have stuff to right it's just hat with half term being here I seem to have had less time than whilst working!! Not much is going on around and about...we moved the clocks in the U.K. last weekend so now it's getting dark at 5pm but weirdly it isn't that cold. I know it's autumn because the calendar says so...and some of the leaves are turning and coming off the trees but it is just so warm still and today was 18degrees...Oh well I guess I'll just make the most of it whilst it here...could be snowing next

Anyway although it is still quite warm the tomatoes have just about finished. There are still a few on the plants but they are very slow in turning and the leaves are curled and brown but I am determined to leave them on the plant as long as possible as I much preferred them ripened this way.

Still haven't been up the plot so I will hopefully manage this at the weekend and I can let you know how it's doing then.

Poor tomato plant!!

What's the weather doing where you are??? Is it as warm for you?? At this rate I'll need to cut the lawns again :-(


  1. The weather here is cloudy with rain 1-2 times a day. Umbrella its a must for travel :) Wish I can help you cut the lawn Tanya :)

  2. It's still very mild here in Yorkshire. My grass is definitely going to need another cut.

  3. Pennsylvania has been under cloudy and rainy skies. Temps aren't too terrible but not as warm as I like. We too could get snow any time (already had one snow fall already) I think my grass needs mowed too but can't tell since it's burried under a ton of leaves :)

  4. I see that you do have tomatoes on your vine. My vines went all summer without developing tomatoes, except for one that now, after all this time, has a couple of small green tomatoes.

    Go figure my garden; and I can't blame that on the CHICKEN. LOL


keep it clean...keep it relevant...I look forward to reading your comments!!
