Lockdown projects

We moved into our house just before Christmas and have become some of the lucky people to be able to spend time in the garden during lockdown. Sometimes I find it difficult to get over how lucky our timing was. We were on a small hot flat last year, going through IVF and then an exhausting pregnancy. Had we been just 10 months later with all these things it’s very likely I would have had my treatment cancelled and we would now be stuck, like many people are, in a small place with little out door space at all.

Since we’ve been in lockdown my partner has been growing things. We have little boxes of little plants like the all over the house. We have put up a polytunnel in the back of the Gary and are trying out the no dig technique to create flower/ vegetable beds.

Have you started any projects during lockdown?

I also make art. You can see things with my designs on at my shop here. Could even treat yourself if you wanted to. Just saying. If buying art is not your thing, but you would like to support what you see I also have a Patreon Page here.

Tomato trauma – help appreciated!

Blogger hive mind (the bits that know something about growing veg anyway), I need some help.

This has happened to quite a lot of my tomatoes. I am pretty new to growing things and I don’t know what this is.

Does anyone know what it is? Have I been inappropriately watering or is this a bug of some kind?

Does anyone know how i can stop it happening?

Thank you!
