The guinea pig tomatoes have been planted, and the Great Tomato Experiment is on.
Over Labour Weekend – like many others, and with high expectations – I planted my young vege plants in the garden.
Then, on National Radio, no less, a gardening expert warned against doing this. Wait until it gets warmer, he advised.
What to do, I wondered, and that night happened to dine with a husband and wife who are both biologists extraordinaire.
Prof Bruce sided with the radio chap, saying hold your horses and your tomato plants – don’t plant too soon.
Dr Bev said “Now, now, do it now!”
So N8N is conducting a Scientific Experiment. Yesterday – 11/11/2011 – we purchased a punnet of the finest young tomato plants, and applying rigorous scientific methodology – planted said punnet.
The martini was a necessity, it being a Friday. And it helped me dig the little holes. (I’m certain I put the roots in the soil, although it was hard to see…)
We shall see what we shall see in a few weeks.
