Sea Scouts Support Tomato Plant

Not in the litteral sense, but my 5 years in the Sea Scouts is now benefiting my ever growing tomato plant.

Before you think I've gone mad and am blowing a Bosun's Call at it whilst wearing a Pork Pie hat and neck scarf, perhaps I should explain.

I also took this opportunity to cut back the bushy plant and pinch out some wannabe shoots, which should give all that lovely fruit a chance to ripen.

Now where did I park my Battleship?
