Kitty, a Troc is a second hand furniture and household items place, usually in a big bare building. Our local one sells stuff for other people. They don't swap. I know of a similar place in Norwich which is called an emporium.

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

Spent the day in the hot sun, 30°, that's the shade temp, in the veg garden. I had to plant stuff as may be going to stay with son because of new GD. I'm getting behind anyway and my plants would have needed re-potting if not planted.
Planted runner beans, courgettes, cucumbers, tomatoes, sweet peppers, lettuces, broccoli, French marigolds. Watered it all well.
Think I may have overdone it though, felt dizzy and have a headache.

Oh yum, slated caramel ice lollies, wish I had some. I've been toiling in the veg garden in full sun. Think I've overdone it. Had 3 glasses of elderflower cordial. Headache started.

They aren't the decorative sort of cobweb, Dove, then add the dust!

Thanks Joyce. So long as the cobwebs don't get in my hair, they aren't the pretty sort they're fluffy and messy!

They are my furthest away family, other son is quite near, daughter 1 is 2 1/2hrs away and daughter 2 is a bit over an hour.


You said it was on going RB, was anything taken? What a horrid shock.

Hello all, 11th Grandchild was born early this morning! They've called her after me but not quite so we don't get confused - Elise.


I'm very behind in the garden because of going to England in May. I'm frantically trying to get stuff planted in the veg garden today in case I go to see the new little one very soon. Son and DIL live 5 hrs drive away. She's their third daughter. I'm planting out the runner beans, tomatoes, red peppers, broccoli, lettuces. Then all the flower beds but one need weeding (but that will have to wait) and plants I've grown and the rest of the ones I bought in England need planting, 4 clematis as well. Nearly finished all the annuals in the pots. House is full of cobwebs.

Asparagus is grown in the Dordogne, so we've had quite a bit  There are quite a lot of English people who prefer green asparagus here so I think that could be why it's available, but when we moved here in '85 there was only the white sort.


Dove, I've seen the before photo, what happened to the after photo?  But, joking aside, I hope you manage to sleep and the docs have given you a good pain relief.
