Rainy day

Its been raining on and off here in Bangalore. Its kind of good for me since I dont have to water my plants and they thrive well on rain water anyway.

Because of the rain, most of the tomato plants couldnt bear the weight of the tomatoes and they started drooping down because of the weight. There is a kind of disease that starts attacking the tomatoes after the rain and i have already lost a few of them to it. So I decided to pluck many of the tomatoes while they are still green. I am going to make then ripe “offline”.

I dont claim these as record breaking tomatoes but definitely they are a handful since they are grown in containers.

Here are they are.

Hopefully in a weeks time, they will be red in color.

Happy me!.

Basal canes.(Pics)

I had written about basal canes and how to make your rose plants produce more basal canes. Basal canes are different from suckers that start below the graft/bud joint. Just to make things clear here is a picture of a basal cane that I took .

Look at the vigor with which its growing. Usually Basal canes have lots of flowers in them.
