...most of my plants did not enjoy moving house very much, or the lack of attention they have received as a result of the whole house moving process and are starting to reach the end of their little lives. However, there are still lots and lots of tomatoes waiting to ripen (both on the plants and off due to a couple of plants developing some rather suspicious looking black spots, which I feared may be the blight), peppers a plenty, a variety of leaves and a very pleasant surprise in some late strawberries.
Way back at the beginning of the year I purchased some strawberry runners, they flourished, but then all the plants I purchased started to fruit my runners didn't, then they started to shoot off their own runners so I gave up on the idea of them fruiting this year and figured they would just fruit next year. But I was wrong! They must be a late fruiting variety and now I have a whole fresh crop of really delicious strawberries!
I've also planted some bulbs ready for next spring and am already planning all the wonderful plants I hope to grow next year with all the extra space I have now. It may still be a rather small outside space that is either decked or shingled, but it is a whole lot bigger than my tiny roof terrace in the old house!
Also having shingle isn't all bad when you discover a little gem like this in there!
