My tomatoes aren’t doing too well this year. And of course, my favourite variety is the one that’s refusing to grow altogether.
I sowed the first batch in late February, rather later than I usually do. When I not a single seedling of the yellow currant tomatoes had showed up three weeks later, I decided it was time to re-sow.
And today, I’ve finally discovered some seedlings. From the first batch. After five weeks. Certainly taking their time this year.
On a more cheerful note, something else is growing too:
Of the four Tetrastigma voinierianum cuttings I got in February, two are still alive and rooted, and one of them has a bud on it now. And I suppose a single cutting may be quite enough to fill my remaining living space with crazy greenery.
Why, exactly, did I think this was a good idea?
