Testing time for tomatoes

Planting scientifically

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.

    That’s a clever martini, digging holes & all! How did it hold the spade?? (Enquiring minds want to know!)
