Too old to watch the Asian races live.
I agree you need the weather to grow them outdoors, but they have these huge poly tunnels in places to grow them in. I believe the biggest one is in Kent, so where do all the tomatoes they grow end up? I'm guessing abroad if we can't find them in our shops and supermarkets.I have a friend who lives in Scarborough Angel, I went to stay with him whilst the Tour de Yorkshire was on. The weather was cold and wet which he said was normal for this year. I met up with him in London last week, he said that the weather had improved a couple of weeks before but overall it had still not been good.
From my experience tomatoes are reluctant to grow in clod weather, mine are just coming on stream which is decidedly later than usual, they were once again stopped by the spring weather.
Well, when Nixon (Republican) was president the House and the Senate were controlled by Democrats. In Clinton’s second term, the House and the Senate were controlled by Republicans. Currently the House (which has the power to impeach) is controlled by Democrats. , while the Senate (which actually tries the President) is controlled by Republicans. It is not madness. It is mathematics.In 1973 Richard Nixon lied to Congress and the American people and was forced to resign before facing certain impeachment.
In the mid 90's Bill Clinton lied to Congress and the American people, he was impeached but survived in office.
In the late 2010's Trump can say what the hell he likes and no one seems to care.
What a mad world we now live in.
It's going to be shit.Well I hope after Brexit is sorted out we will be able to buy our own products for a change. We used to be able to, I've not had this issue other years.
I know I should grow my own but when I tried that the slugs had a field day with them and all I got was annoyed!!
Isle Of Wight tomatoes sound good vintly sadly I don't live anywhere near a Waitrose though
The world doesn’t need another blood bath. The Indian government must know that this is going to pan out badly.
