  1. What I'm Growing

    by , 17-06-2009 at 10:24 AM

Also tied the tomato plants in to their supports, and tied in those of the cherokee beans which hadn't found a support and started twining round it already. Once they do get a grip on a support, their growth seems to take off. I wonder if finding a support and twining ...
