garden time

The poppies have attracted bees . . .

. . . but now they've gone to seed.

A bounty of blackcurrants? 

Here is this year's veg (fruit?) plot.

So . . . I pulled up some poppies, transplanted some tomatoes, harvested (!) a dish of blackcurrants and pruned the bushes.  They're in large pots, but I don't expect miracles.  Time will tell.  I checked my compost pot and it's full of worms working hard.  Then I shifted containers around - a few quite large, most small and mostly full of flowering plants. 

There's a noticeable difference in leaf colour between the tomatoes which I planted in the ground two weeks ago, and the ones which were in the trough until yesterday.
