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.

Mini Greenhouse for seedlings

Only last week I was talking about a mini greenhouse for my seedlings, when low and behold the weekly publicite was delivered and La Fair Fouille had some on offer at 19.99 euros each. To be honest, I thought they would be smaller than in the picture, but was pleasantly surprised when I put them together. So I am all set for a place to house my seedlings for next year's bumper crops. They should just keep the frost off inside the polytunnel.
Bramble celebrated her 11th Birthday today, so she is sitting there guarding her presents. Well the big bone has virtually disappeared, but I am sure she will be pestering me all day to throw her new rope toy for her.
