They say dont cast a clout until march is out and going by the view from the bathroom window out over the garden thats about right,

It was so nice yesterday, that little mist and the birds all singing away
It looks like they're all having an extras 40 winks 7-30am and not a note tobe heard,

But im glad mother nature has given us this early start and we've got the gardening off to a start,

My first job is to have a look at the greenhouse and start to pot on the russian tomatoes,
They we're sown 2 weeks ago and thanks to the bottom heat of the warming cables they're about 3 inch high with 2 good common leaves so im going to re-pot into 3 inch clay pots,
Clay pots keep the warm in better than plastic,

These russian toms are the darker skinned type and sweet to taste,
If you've not tried these give them a go they dont suffer with rot and are pretty hardy ,
they do well outside later on (april here in france) i take the precaution of using the clear plastic bell over them of an evening until they've settled in.
They're also a good producer per plant.
I feed a fish based liquid feed as soon as the first flower appears and then its a weekly feed of the same.

Nothing like a nice home grown freshly picked tom,
the shop ones just dont have that taste infact i find them very watery.

Well have a nice day Wink
