Welcome to my blog

I was born in Guernsey (but now live in Brittany) and our main industry was growing tomatoes although that industry has now virtually disappeared. Growing tomatoes to a Guernseyman is like wine to a Frenchman, it's in our blood! I do not profess to be an expert, but I have picked up a few tips and techniques which work for me.

Keep your early cucumbers off the soil

Well, I have trimmed most of my cucumbers off of the stem, as I like to grow them on the shoots. However, I always leave a few ones lower down on the stem to have an early feed. But you have to keep these off of the soil. So here is how I do it, which is also how I support my melons!


  1. Does Mr TK have a ready supply of ladies stockings or tights? They work well...

  2. No, but Mrs TK does, but that's another story!
