The Slow Tomato Race – Another Drought

Week Sixteen

Week Sixteen

My weekend was filled with bike rides, writing, fixing computers and playing with web sites. It’s also been wonderfully hot again.

You would therefore think I’d remember to water the tomato plant, especially given that I’m trying to decide what vegetables to plant for the winter season.

Sadly I didn’t. It wasn’t until midday on Sunday that I suddenly remembered to do the watering. By this time the leaves were drooping and the soil was hard. I think I’ve saved it in time, and hopefully the green fruit won’t suffer too much: it’ll probably just be a bit smaller.

Fruit Eaten: 5
