Berries are looking good!

The pyracantha berries are looking good, lovely shades of red and orange / yellow.  The birds must have lots of food around at the moment because they haven’t started on these yet.  Good, I can admire them for a few more weeks!

The sorbus tree at the front has HUGE white berries that are almost as large as moth balls (does anyone else remember those?).  The tree is young and the branches are weighed down so I have cut some of the bunches off.

Prune the tomato plants…

Gardeners’ World advised to remove the leaves from tomato plants to try to ensure remaining fruits ripen.  OK – here goes.

All the leaves are off, the plants look very sad now but hopefully the remaining toms will start to ripen up.  One plant has died as it blew over, so have taken off all the green tomatoes and have put them into a bowl with a banana and covered with a plate.  Lets hope they ripen up..
