Welcome, plums and tomatoes

First of all, welcome to Bonnie The Frugal Apprentice.

Yesterday, I showed you the red cherry plums we picked in the wild. We had several of the split ones with some ice cream for supper. The rest were on our porridge this morning. The other topping is ground linseed:
I have been dutifully spraying my tomatoes with disprin in the hope (in all this wet weather), of keeping the dreaded blight at bay. Too early to tell yet but they don't seem to mind. I always take inter-nodal cuttings for a later growing season. These plants, other than last weekend in the rain, will be grown indoors in the conservatory. Providing they aren't already harbouring the disease, will hopefully grow well. On the right are some later cuttings than those (which I don't normally take). They may well be too late and they need dividing and potting on. These indoor plants are also sprayed, just in case:
I'm off to the dentist later this morning for some treatment. Whilst away over the weekend, I chewed a sweet (not toffee) and pulled out part of a filling. I don't have any pain so am hoping they will just grind down the sharp edges!
