I thought it might be a goldenrod of some sort. (but only by searching the 'net for similar pics).
Nope. Not Goldenrod.
They're now about 5ft tall with pinkish flowers. Can anyone identify them now please?

I've been having some strawberries and ice cream each evening most nights recently, my parents strawberries have done really well.

Wild flowers are amazing once you start looking into them.
I only started a few years ago when I retired. Now I can name a few. 👍
Got rose bay and greater willow herb near me.
My teacher said the greater has flowers from all leaf joins. 🤷‍♂️

😀don't want them all ready at the same time mate. I think it's nature slowing things down due to the heat. Hopefully wjen things settle they will start to ripen in order. That picture is only 10 of the plants , I've another 16 , 10 beef and 6 cherry/ salad. All the beef in the greenhouse are slowly ripening as they are more temperature and light controlled but those outside are being really slow to even think about ripening.

My dad always had a piece of red cloth in the greenhouse, said it helped the toms turn.
Not sure if he was away wi fairies but always had a good crop.:unsure:

The Toms look brilliant at the minute, just starting to ripen. I've had to support some of the trusses as they were in danger of snapping with the weight. I grew a cucumber plant which produced 4 nice fruits, is that normal or should there have been more?

How many cues you get can alter massively. Variety, and growing conditions can make or break your harvest, but 4 seems a bit light. Are you letting them run or are you training them ?

I've just cut back on the water and feed, as although it's a cracking crop, they're not ripening properly.
