Dames and Historical Deadlines!

I'm honoured to be a Dame for a Day over at the Deadline Dames*

where I'm blogging about London, its history, and these:

but maybe not in the way you think *looks shifty*.

So why not head on over and take a look for yourself . . . oh, and if you leave a comment over there, you'll be in with a chance to win a copy of The Sweet Scent of Blood . So what are you waiting for? Go! Now! You know you want to *g*

*Yay! These Dames are some of my fav authors! Many thanks to the fab Kaz Mahoney for inviting me!


And now for something completely different! Yes, I threatened you with promised you tomato pic spam so here it is:

Three different varieties of cherry tomatoes

Look we have flowers already! WooT!

3 tomato plants of the same variety - cherry type again
Eggplant**, cucumber and melon

2 different chilli plants (1 red, 1 yellow) and 1 bell pepper plant!

** the eggplant (aka aubergine) suffered a snap set back on its first night in the greenhouse (perpetrator unknown, but probably either mouse- or fox-like in origin), but has now rallied and looks like it's going to make it *phew*

I've heard of people 'ripping' open a bag of potting soil and growing veggies, but I'd never seen it. And here you have a bag that says specifically that. Cool!

What made you decide to go with a bag bed instead of a regular one?

Hi Maria, everyone uses growing bags like these over here for veggies and salads. I use them cos they're easy; no preparation needed, and at the end of the season I can compost the spent plant and dig the left over soil left in the bag into the garden as a mulch. Makes for a quick tidy up :-).

I also usually get lots of tomatoes and salad stuff using them, although this is the first year I've tried melons, and chillies,so should be interesting :-)
