On secret staircases, interstellar art and tomatoes

Today some of the LSE roof gardeners met in the Old Building to discuss Autumn-Winter planting. As it is a beautiful day we followed the meeting with a trip up the SCR’s secret staircase out onto the Shaw Library balcony.

I took this photo without realising the red brick wall is of course the Saw Swee Hock Student Centre – I’ve never seen this view of it before!

Finally, we made it round to the Tomato Central aka the Shaw Library garden. The tomatoes are doing absolutely brilliantly and are apparently lovely and sweet, so I was very easily persuaded to give some a new home. They’re now on my desk.

Amongst the tommies we also found a couple of rogue peppers and even a pea plant having a second go. Hurrah for October sun!
