I'm with you Shan - green papaya salad is amazing. Ripe papayas are too cheesy for my liking

Had half a green papaya yesterday and the other half will be for today.... yummy!


Impressive for south wales, although it has been a warm late summer around here too.

It is showing night time lows of about 3 degrees. Would that be too cold for my tomato plants if they were in my greenhouse?

Thank you.

yes

a candle under a terracotta plant pot or alternative heat source might keep it warm enough, but leave it a week or two is more reliable

did you see the snaps of my chill shocked bonsai tomato fail?

might be worth getting a max min thermometer to see how the temp holds up in the greenhouse. my tomatoes are planted in the gh now.

Thank you both. I'll leave it a little while long for now. They are looking really healthy and I don't want to spoil that.

I do remember that DPack and goodness knows I don't want that.

I've had a bit of a shufty round down the allotment DPack and I've created another wildflower bed, so I've relocated the frog hotel and thought I'd do a picture for you.

That looks good Sgt. Colon, but you might like to add a bit on top of that. It doesn't need to be much, but more cover will keep it nice and damp, even in dry weather, which is what they need.

Thanks both.

MR, when you say, add a bit more, do you mean some flowers or a bit more soil?

Thanks.
