Hello again. I've been away in Yorkshire for a week. Daughter and family have been staying here and looking after things. All my pots and garden have been well watered and are still alive.

You must be very fit, that's twice as fast as walking time and it was a long way.

Wow, David, amazing scenery. How long did it take you to walk 36 miles?

Beaus Mum, have you waited long enough? Sometimes it takes some time.

Forgot onions to right of sweet corn.

Update on veggie garden. Looks like a jungle, no time to weed, house full of children and friends. Runner beans have been weeded in front so beans can be picked! Sweet corn, spinach, carrots, fennel. In weeds to right are potatoes, enormous this year, in front of fennel, don't think in picture are beetroot.

 

HELLO FORKERS!

Love blackberry jam, sieve them to get rid of the pips. Don't like them in my teeth!

Have daughter no 2 here and  2 of her friends. That makes (with my OH) 7 adults, 5 small children and 2 babies. Daughter No 1 and OH and 3 small sons coming tomorrow. Have I said all that already? Starting to feel confused, meal times are pretty noisy! We are escaping to Yorkshire on Saturday. Said that before!

No time for gardening, but must freeze some runner beans, they've gone mad.

Growing Sweet Peas

I've had loads, they are taller than me, getting to the top of the trellis, need picking again, but - can't succeed all the time - the outdoor tomatoes were rubbish, got blight and the yellow courgettes taste horrid.
