🇬🇧 I had planted most of the tomatoes outside in spring. I have already reported about my tomatoes in previous posts. They grew very well and produced something between 20 and 30 kg of tomatoes at the end.

It's a good thing that the rhubarb was harvested for this year and is no longer growing so much. Pumpkin Development The plants of the Hokkaido pumpkin had somewhat difficulties. Of three plants… Continue reading Pumpkins, pumpkins, pumkins!
🇬🇧 Thanks to the special Corona situation, I decided this year to spend my vacations where I currently live (I was definitely not the only one with that thought). In itself this was not a bad idea, as I had not yet taken the time to explore the surroundings here - and that where North… Continue reading OT: Holiday Report (Staycation in Noord-Brabant)
🇬🇧 A few days ago, after a warm start to the summer, the weather changed after a heavy storm. Unfortunately the storm also knocked down some of the plants.
