The saga that is The Taxi Tomato (TTT) continues.In the last TTT post I commented on the my seemingly eventual success at getting a start on growing my TTT.
Well success turned to failure when they rotted off at ground level due mainly to the excessive soil moisture after our unusually high rainfall.
So there's nothing for it except to start again.
It's still pretty wet here so in order to prevent the same thing happening again I planted the new seeds into a well drained potting mix housed in a terracotta pot.
As you can see from the photo so far so good.
I've also included a photo on the progress of my climbing beans and again so far so good.
As for failures I'm racking up the frequent flyer points atm. Three different lots of bush beans have failed, I can't seem to grow parsley or spinach from seed and lettuce is proving difficult. I have no idea what is happening as I've never expericenced problems with any of these before so I'm just going to have to keep trying until I get something to germinate.
As for success I've managed beetroot, cabbage, cauliflower, rocket and climbing peas so it's all a bit hit and miss at the moment.
I'm really missing my parsley and spinach so I might have to cave in and buy some seedlings from the local nursery until I can work out what is happening.
Anyhow cheers and happy veggie gardening
