Hi Guys and welcome back to my blog. First of all I must apologise for not blogging for so long but we finally had some dry, yes dry and very warm weather here in Southern Ireland which we haven’t seen here for a very long time.  It was such a welcome surprise BUT the watering became a very very long job.  I know some of you will be thinking why am I not using a watering system, well I have used both overhead and ground level irrigation systems in the past in tunnels but as we have re-vamped them I didn’t manage to get them back into place before I started planted so I am watering everything, inside and out of the tunnels with the hose.  Luckily we get our water from the mountain well so no shortage there. I am hoping to get catch up with my blogs over the next few weeks but thought I would share a few photos of my tomatoes which were taken today.

I am growing over 20 varieties of tomatoes this year and have approximately 150 tomato plants of which most are doing really well ( as you can see from the pictures).  I have however, had a few problems which I will do  a separate blog on in the coming days to show you in more detail the different tomato problems that can occur and how you can resolve them!!
