Happy New Year, 2015

I have neglected this blog in recent years but I’m still passionate about the allotment gardening. I am so glad to still have this site online and happy to see it has been a value to some of you. It would have been useful for me to keep track of what has been sown and planted, etc.., but I forget or there’s rain at the allotment preventing recording the actions taken (we don’t want wet paper doing now) and yes there is a shed I could take shelter in to do the paperwork. Labels get moved, or forgotten. I could do another batch of metal can labels and  there is a small white board in the shed but perhaps we should have another, oh and we will need to get better markers. I have organised a non bulky seeds better.
Gardening resolutions:
1) better organisation
2) better log keeping
3) better blog keeping
4) find and try recipes for harvest gluts (pumpkin soup anyone? still got a few stored).

    I have been very to contact you as some years back you mentioned growing Kenches Gold tomatoes. I have scoured the internet for hours on end and contacted many specialist growers. All to no avail. The reason for my interest is that I acquired some seeds from a seed swap. Only 2 out of 10 sown are growing, although they have taken a long time to now reach 6 inches tall. I would love to have nore details about these “elusive creatures”!

      I can’t remember much about the tomato. I obtained it from the Heritage Seed Library/Garden Organic (they have a presence on Facebook, so perhaps you could ask there). Their catalogue described it as an Intermediate. Cordon. It was donated and named after the donor’s grandfather. It is thought to date back to at least 1901 [the donor] days, “A delicious, sweet-fruited variety” and another grower agrees it is “a star performer!”

        Thank you so very much! Yours is the first and only direct answer I have received after 3 months of trying to find answers!
