Always acknowledge when it is time to give up. And give up.
The Minibel Tomatoes begin to crop, but the Squash and Courgettes are under attack from white mildew that threatens to kill them.
The Courgettes are thriving but they’ve come under attack from blackfly, and the Rosemary has a beetle infestation.
I’m beginning to drool as the Courgette ‘Black Beauty’ plants are beginning to flower and form baby courgettes, but the garden pests are queuing up.
The Tomato ‘Minibel’ seedlings are ready to be potted on to their individual pots, and head towards their next growing stage.

The third propagator came into action this weekend, as British Summer Time arrived and I fill another windowsill with seedlings.
The first Tomato ‘Minibel’ fruits have been picked – ending a 4 month waiting period, blighted by heavy winds and roasting sunshine.

Last year’s Tulip bulbs are now coming into flower, and the seedlings are thriving in the propagator.
