Second Week of February

Somewhat milder weather this week. We got some rain early in the week, and temperatures generally in the mid-twenties (celcius).

Some of the tomato plants have seen better days. I've been pruning away the branches as they dry up, and as the photos show the plants are losing "volume". There are still plenty of green tomatoes growing (about thirty) so hopefully there's still a few more weeks of produce to come. To supplement the first set of tomato plants I will have the younger "Costoluto di Marmande" tomato plants, and couple of those are already starting to bear fruit.

The aubergine and capsicum plants are still going quite nicely.

On Saturday morning I gave the plants their fortnightly feed of seaweed solution.
