I agree with uploading from the phone - I'm always out in the garden going " what the dickins is this?!" And "agh what's that doing on my flowers?!" But by the time I've come back in, been sent back out to remove my muddy wellies, found my notepad,  fired up,  bluetoothed the file, got distracted and gone and made a cup of tea while AVG performs another scan...

Not long now Mike, I'm glad you had a good nurse taking your blood - it always seems easier when they get you relaxed.

Are you getting these rain showers we are up North? My wellies are overflowing but I guess that teaches me for leaving them outside! I hope you are so your garden can fend for itself for a while and give you plenty of colours to raise the spirits.

I grow Roma, you dont pick out side shoots of those, they were fantastic last year, I still have some in the freezer.

OOh that's useful to know! Thanks for that (I haven't taken any side shoots yet - kept chickening out!)

OL. - only two of my tomato plants have any flowers on them (and they're both called Dave) - the others (a mix of Dave and Roma) aren't even showing signs of even thinking about flowering yet.
