enjoys pottering about in the greenhouse.
He loves to grow tomatoes

He tends the plants daily...
Halls English Greenhouse
shade cloth is installed to protect the plants from the strong rays of the sun.
beefsteak and cherry varieties.
Cucumbers growing in a pot.
Fresh tomatoes are SO MUCH tastier than those found in the shops.
We have been eating them in salads, in sandwiches,
I am roasting some in the oven as I type...
I rinsed the tomatoes before slicing
popped in a few cloves of garlic
seasoned with salt and pepper
and drizzled with olive oil.
Roast slow at 275 degrees for several hours.
Pop into a container and freeze for future use
in soups, stews and pasta sauces.
The house smells divine...
Thank you Mr. HB for your bountiful crop of tomatoes
and I look forward to the next harvest!
Do you grow any food crops?
What are your favourite things to grow?
Do you can or preserve or make jam?
