Here's how 5 tomatoes can set your pulse racing.... Cut throat competition in the Tomato category. What a joy to see a person lavishing affection and pride on their little darlings as they present their garden produce to the world, rather like the Debutante's Coming Out Ball for the very well heeled. Onions are even polished with a little talcum powder to bring out their silken sheen.
The joys of small village life. Last weekend was the local Garden Show, eagerly awaited by many of residents of our small rural community, it is a major event in the local diary and I was mightily pleased to have got First prize for my vase of home grown annuals. Here they are afterwards having endured a cycle ride home in my bike basket.
