A good day to dry freshly picked garlic under the frame of the gazebo. About 31 °C in the evening sunshine.

Yesterday's tayberries and loganberries. I find these much easier to grow than raspberries, and though not as tasty fresh, work just as well in fruit salads and when cooked.

New video - taking tomato cuttings to get new plants. You can watch on YouTube by following the link in my profile.
A step by step video on how to take tomato cuttings from side shoots, from initial cutting to transplanting the new plants to their final pots. It is an easy and fast way to get more tomato plants from existing plants.

For the first time this year I have experimented with taking tomato cuttings, and I’ve been really surprised at how easy it is. My experiment has been so successful I may even sow less seed next year, knowing that I can rely on taking cuttings to boost the number of plants. All four cuttings I made successfully formed roots, and are now mini-plants - significantly more advanced than if I had sown more seed.

I felt lucky to see this robin on yesterday's morning walk to the allotment. A handsome bird.

Picture of a heron taken on a walk. It did not allow me to get too close. Herons seem to be quite common on the stretch of the river Thames where I walk.

One of my few remaining parsnip seedlings in the summer sunshine. The rest were enjoyed by slugs.

Green gages are swelling nicely. They are one of the earliest fruiting of the plum family. Hopefully it will not be too long now!
