The Kitchen Gardener
Continue to pinch out the side shoots of cordon tomatoes. This conserves energy and re directs it where the flowers/ fruits are forming.
Deadhead herbs unless collecting seed for future sowing or use as a seasoning. Simply use shears on plants such as thyme, oregano and marjoram. Plants will continue to send out new lush sappy growth and maintain a compact form. If collecting seed, clean and store in paper packets in a cool, dry and dark place.
Sow beetroot, Calabrese, kohlrabi, oriental greens and salad onions.
