Tomatoes & Clematis

We are officially eating tomatoes. Both the Early Girl and the Roma had ripened fruit to pick. There were a lot of bees and wasps on the many sedum flower heads which deterred working too close to them. The clematis that was growing on the porch front and disappeared this year has self seeded itself in the vegetable patch and I let it climb up the empty teepee that we sadly were too late in finding any beans for. Its now flowering and it looks like its the autumn flowering Clematis Terniflora. Which means the other Clematis on the front porch is Summer flowering and needs to be pruned accordingly for next season -'In late winter or early spring. Start pruning from the top down, removing only dead and damaged stems to the highest pair of healthy buds."
