In October I shall be going to Oxford University to shake off the cobwebs with a Masters degree in Artificial Intelligence. If I do well enough then I will progress to a doctorate.
I have still had time to tend to the garden. Although the space is minimal I have been blessed with hundreds of onions and shallots. A second year of successful tomato growing, plus the usual lettuce and potatoes.
I always grow "cut and come again" lettuce/salad greens in tubs. You don't need a plot of earth to grow them. The gnome tends to the garden when I am not there.
An old fish box into which I placed 25 shallot bulbs which have multiplied into over 100 shallots. Also, three tubs of potatoes.
My onions have already fallen over and await harvesting but I shall leave them where they are for now.
There are 7 tubs of tomato plants. I had to bring them in at night during a few cold snaps in April and May but they have survived. For where I live, a greenhouse is best for growing tomatoes. I saw a programme about Andalucia, in Spain, back in April and they were already harvesting tomatoes.
Finally, the dark corner, in which I grow potatoes or lettuces that don't need so much light. These potato plants are already beginning to die back so they will be ready to lift soon enough.
However, I will probably leave them in the ground until they are required for cooking. I am always digging up errant potatoes in the spring when turning the earth so leaving potatoes in the ground is the best thing to keep them fresh until needed.
Good news! My college at Oxford has an allotment so I will make good use of it.
