Leclerc sells a sliced loaf called Toastiline 0% sugar which is better than most French sliced bread, which is American style and has too much sugar in it.

Do runner beans need to be pollinated?

Usually flying insects will do the job. There is a fairly new variety called Firestorm which is self pollinating. It did very well in my garden last year.

This season

I have Gertrude Jekyll, lovely fragrance but very thorny. I think Mortimer Sackler would be better.

We have had a lot of heavy rain in the last few days. Also strong gusts of wind and some thunder. A lot cooler, was only 12° this morning. Garden is looking a bit battered.

Hello from daughter 2's. Just put my GD and GS, 7 and 5, to bed. Took longer than it should have done because we got carried away with bedtime stories. 9.30pm here. Daughter and SIL are out for a meal with friends. Tomorrow is GD's school play which I will be going to see.

Nanny Beach, I don't have a Smart phone either. I think other people's gardens look good because they are fresh and new to you. You get used to your own garden.

Morning all.
Been raining here too, only 12° this morning. Garden is looking bashed and soggy.


Punkdoc, why don't you go with OH? Treat it as a little holiday, find a garden to visit, or something, while she's working and wine and dine her in the evenings.

Well done Possum.


We've had a huge storm, lots more rain was really dark. Lost Internet for a bit. Daughter, south of Poitiers rang and said they'd hardly had any rain. She's desperate for it, she sowed all her new lawns in the autumn and has planted lots of roses.

Coming soon... At last ....Chateau de Gateau
