6.9.39

Very hot. Rooted up first lot of French beans & dug over that patch, which will do for spring cabbage. Cut side shoots out of tomatoes. These have not done at all well. All leaf & stalk, the plants growing so huge that it is almost impossible to get them to stand upright, & few & poor tomatoes (one or two now ripening.) Probable cause too much animal manure & not enough light.

10 eggs.

    Well what is he supposed to say? He is a writer, he’s half got himself killed in Spain, he is in a bad way with his TB. He is going to need his spring greens!

    Too much manure and not enough light on the tomatoes — seems like a bit of a rookie mistake. Also, shouldn’t he be pinching the apices if he wants the plants to be more stocky?

    Too much ordure and little light – seems like an oblique Orwellian comment on today’s press.
