Can you see the willow hedge coming along there (in between the washing line, windows and cows?). Unfortunately these are not aesthetically framed pictures - more a running snapshot of cows rampaging around this morning! I'm just so happy to see them I don't mind my photos being a bit daft. The tomato in question there is Marmande - a good one for sauce. The hedge is one year and two months old - going quite well, over 5ft already - all from hard wood cuttings. Perfect - soon it will help with the shelter. Thankfully my living room is upstairs, so it won't ever spoil our view! Therefore I'll still see the cows!
More cows and more tomatoes - these are tumbling tom - already flowering - and doing well - about 1 1/2 ft (45 cm). Not too shoddy for a windowsill in the frozen north in late May. Well I don't think so! I've two window boxes of these planted - I hope they do well - they are cerainly flowering well!
More hedge and a veiw of the neighbours and a dead hebe in the midst of the willow hedge. I've got to think what I'll put in that space. Always with the bad, a bit of good. A new planting to be found!
