Re: Thinning tomato plant leaves

I too have started removing those leaves that are shading the trusses, I have in the past at the end of the season removed all of the leaves and the plants just threw out more. I don't think you need to be too fussy, the plants seem very robust, my option is if it's shading tommies, it's off!!.

Re: Fifth truss?

5 does seem a lot, even for a relatively small fruited plant, mine do vary, for example the breakfast ones only have 2 trusses as they have huge amounts of fruit per truss. I have 3 on Ailsa Craig as they are a bit bigger and 4 on the smaller ones like GD and Red Pear.

Re: Lupin seeds and goldfinches

Goldfinches eat much smaller seeds than those in Lupins, the Nyger seed we buy from the shops is the sort of thing they like.

Re: A view of my garden

5 packets of seed, all different varieties sown in succession, so hopefully we will be eating them in smallish quantities, last year I left them in the ground and covered them with fleece and they lasted right through the winter, quite a lot went into carrot cake as well as dinners and soups.

Re: Doing something that reminds you of someone!

On the shelling peas, it was my job when preparing the veg for Sunday dinner, me and my Dad in the garden and Mum in the kitchen, don't forget the mint was an oft heard shout down the garden. Over 60 years ago now.
