Hello everyone. I'm glad to see Jim is back from his holiday in Ireland, and all in one piece this time which is even better.
As you will see from my weather observations above we had a pretty wet time of it last night, not much more than a week ago the farmer was planting potatoes in the field below, this was how it looked this morning when me and Tom took a walk on there. We even saw a duck swimming about on one of the pools.
Jim asked me a good question about the tip from last night, and that question is will the tomato plants come true, in other words will they be the same as the parent plant. Well yes they will, cuttings are just an extension of the parent plant, if I was to grow from the seed of the parent plant then this might not be the case but as these were cuttings then yes for sure they will be just the same as the plant I took them from.
Well I will be getting off now, y'all take care and I will see you again soon.

Hi Bob,

Just checking to see what is cooking in your garden. We had record low temperature of 30 deg. F last night (lasting several hours) so it is going to be awhile before we do any planting.
