And in the greenhouse ..........

There are these beauties growing. Plus lots of different chillies (no photo's )

These are the tomato plants grown from seeds from Victoriana Nursery and they are called 'Abraham Lincoln' so far they are huge and look to be growing even bigger every time I visit the greenhouse. One fits into the palm of my hand, I can't wait to try one as soon as they are ripe.

I have 2 cucumber plants grown from seed, can't remember which seed company off hand, but they are called 'Burpless' I grew them last year and they are delicious. I can't keep up with harvesting them and have been giving loads away, shame they can't be frozen.

Fingers crossed I will get some decent Aubergines this year, so far 3 have started swelling.

The first little pepper has just started to grow, I have about 6 plants in the greenhouse so hope to get a good harvest from them.

It's such a busy time of year in the garden and the allotment so forgive me if I don't post as often and I am trying to visit the blogs on my blog list as you all inspire me.
Have a lovely week. M x

These look brilliant, well done. I am in constant admiration of plants like this which always seem quite difficult to me.

Lovely toms, you're doing better than us with them this year!

Thank you REAP WHAT YOU GROW & MRS DOBBY for your comments. They haven't been difficult to grow, but the watering every day gets a bit tedious and a bit of a commitment to visiting the plot every day.

We've had a bit of a tasting session this weekend with 3 types of tomatoes (so far). They are such a joy to grow aren't they?
Hope the aubergines grow well for you - we gave up on them this year.

They look fantastic. Those Abraham Lincoln toms are impressive.
