My Garden Day 66

Wow. So the whole thing went crazy while I wasn’t really looking! Over the weekend Opa attempted to pin up some of my tomatoes, but they are just crazy. Today I found a couple of other loose strands so I put some more stakes in and tied them up. I also put some stakes next to the taller type of chilli, cos they look like they are getting to the stage where they will start to fall over in a stiff breeze or if they put out another leaf.
Over the weekend I was at Mum and Dad’s house and I am SO jealous of Mum’s veggies. She just has stuff growing all over the place. I was a bit worried when I saw how crazy her oregano is, but she said if I just cut mine back, it won’t go all wild. As soon as I got home I cut back a few of the more adventurous shoots so that they stay little.
My chillis are black in the joins where other shoots as well as the flowers are coming out, hopefully that is not a problem. I tried to take a pic but it focussed incorrectly. Nothing seems to be dying, so hopefully it will be alright.
Actually, talking about dying, anything under the tomatoes spread is looking very unhappy!! 😦 But I think it is just two marigolds, one chilli (which is hanging on okay), some carrots and leeks. But there are more of all of them in other places, so I am not fussed.
