The word ‘abundance’ may not have a place in summer 2012 but finally ripe fruits are flowing from the glasshouse.  Actually more of a trickle than a flow, but a daily trickle at least.

The sweet cherry tomatoes are more plentiful so far than the larger varieties which need longer to ripen.  The sweet pepper variety ‘Lipstick’ is the star of the pepper pots, along with the Hungarian wax pepper.  Unfortunately the writing has worn off the label for the pale pepper (right of picture) but as they are uninspiring to look at and bland to taste we won’t seek them out again anyway.  We have named them the ‘Pilly-wally Pepper.’

Roast tomatoes on toast for tea…

Sky a dull blue, temp 19c.
