Finally, harvest season. Delicious crisp lettuce, juicy kohlrabi, sweet snow peas and every day one or two ripe strawberries or raspberries. I’ve good hopes that I’ll have some tomatoes and courgette too later in the season. And pretty flowers!
Finally, we have nice weather, so things start to grow and stuff becomes ready to harvest.
A nifty trick: you normally remove the tiny shoots that develop in the axils of tomato plants to prevent the plant from getting too heavy and tipping over, too keep the plant airy, and to keep a maximum of 5 flowering/tomato developing vines. But I always miss some, which then grow out to branches with some flowers, that make me feel bad to snip off. But a while ago someone told me you can take those cuttings and place them in the earth, so that they will root and grow into another plant. So I tried that, and for now it seems to work.
The weather is still confused. It has been very hot for a few days, and now it’s quite cold again. Most plants do reasonably well, but the tomatoes and courgettes still aren’t too happy.
