Keep caring-and controlling fast Summer growth

             As the earliest crops finish - lettuce, French beans, peas, spinach, cabbage, broccoli etc., new sowings can fill the spaces. I'm sowing Cobra - a climbing French bean - mangetout and sugarsnap peas for Autumn eating. Salad leaves sown now have a long eating season.
          Tomato and cucumber plants respond to careful management. An adequate and regular
water supply is essential - no drying out! Developing fruit benefit from regular liquid feeding.
Reducing the number of flowers per tomato truss ensures healthy development of all the crop. I open vents and door to maximum - better draughty than too humid.
