    My greenhouse tomatoes are all planted and most appear to be flowering. My Black Sea Man looks a little poorly, looking at the bottom of the stem, it looks like I must have damaged it. Piled up some more compost and hoping for additional roots above the damage.

    The allotment F1s and F2s will go out later this week when I get there.

    Plants are growing ok so I'll attempt to save seeds from taiko a yellow oblong tomato & radana a red pear drop shaped cherry tomato. I don't know if zlatava is an F1 or not,there's not much mention of it on the internet so I haven't included it in the save,I could save some though & test them to see what happens,if they all turn out the same,I probably still wouldn't know

    And your hands begin to harden.
