Not sure on the asset side of things. I've no ...

Also, should I cut some of the foliage from my tomato plants?

Foraged a few raspberries and there are lots of small blackberries around our way. Hopefully it will be a bumper year for them.

Thanks for that MR. My cucs seem to have stopped fruiting, the flowers are just falling off. Hopefully now that I've started with the tom feed as well, they'll stop doing that.
