Love Apples

Contrary to what pedants will tell you (i) whales are big fish, (ii) Majorca's "j" is pronounced as the English "j" not "y", and (iii) tomatoes are vegetables not fruit. Hafal's Housing Manager Tracy Lee tells me that her greenhouse tomatoes have still not turned red and, to reassure her, I can report that several friends complain of the same problem. But never one to resist the opportunity to boast in horticultural matters please see evidence of Mrs Blog's success in overcoming the lack of sunshine (the green ones are for chutney). She says the clue is an early start with slow but solid growth in the Spring.
