All Quiet on the Garden Front

Nothing much to report this week. The weather has been on the warm side again, with no rain in sight.

The original tomato plants have almost reached the end of their productive lives. It's likely that I'll pull them out over the next week or so. Any fruit left on them will have to ripen using the trick I learnt last week from ABC TV's Gardening Australia program. Meanwhile, I've left just one "Costoluto di Marmande" plant growing in the ground. That plant has a few almost-ripe tomatoes, and will probably be pulled out this week too. That will leave just two plants growing in pots. Despite the withering state of the plants, I managed to harvest eight tomatoes of the "Costoluto di Marmande" variety.
