Thanks all! Saddad, unfortunately I'm not driving or indeed seeing well enough for much, really! But I hope your open day goes well. I have celebrated my birthday with my first tomato, and by squidging another thirty or so asparagus beetles. I know how to have fun!

The little pests are leaving me alone... to a degree, I see some eggs on the spears I cut, but none have made it to larva yet and only seen two beetles. Impressed you have toms already.. we must be a week or so behind with ours.!

Sorry to be late but I hope you had a good day yesterday and enjoyed that tomato.

I'm only just planting mine out today as I was late sowing them cos of all that cold and then they grew so very slowly.

Toms, I start just a few in the prop in february, we have good south facing windows and a big conservatory, swings and roundabouts though, an early crop but they don't usually set more than 3 or 4 trusses before dying off. The second batch are in the green house, and I've got some very small plants which i hope will grow to give me toms into october or so. In the past I've grown some outdoors, get a huge crop and then blight hits overnignt....
well, it keeps you on your toes!

Warm enough here in a normal year to start seeds off indoors and then grow them on on a sunny windowsill and then transplant in the polytunnel but it was freezing here right into May and my propagator died so I just had a small heat mat.   Toms and chillies sown in two batches and now planted out but by the time I've buried the tom stems as deep as I can they're only a few inches above the soil.  Hope they'll be happy and grow.

Good luck with yours.
