    Thought our tomatoes were doing well until I looked today and it seems we’ve got tomato moths – or their caterpillars anyhow. We’ve picked off all the holey tomatoes (lots!) and any caterpillars we could see (although they camouflage well). Is that the best/only treatment?

    Got the lawnmower out and watched her cut the grass. She did do it right, I guess that’s what you can do with a university degree :grin:

    I did some watering, no rain for weeks.
    We still have strawberries in the range of planters facing south, some onions, and pansies etc in other planters.
    Then sat out and enjoyed the view and the weather.
