Just as I typed that some big sploshes started falling on the terrace - fingers still very crossed for Snoodle - she's a few miles away from here ..........

Back in after running some errands, picking up some stuff for the farm shop as it had been left off an order, called in at the butcher and got a lovely pice of shoulder of Blythburgh Free Range Pork and some bacon, delivered the stuff to the farm shop and bought some fruit and veg then popped into the GC for some more Pak Choi seeds and noticed that they'd got that lovely Achillea Terracotta that Snoodle had in her pic so I just had to get that, and a scabious, and some hedgehog food as last week I'd managed to pick up a bag of squirrel food by mistake - bdooly old pair of glasses - I know I must make another appointment, but I like these old ones - good job I don't need glasses for driving. Anyway, I got home, planted the plants, chatted to the neighbour, removed cat poop x 2 from front lawn grrrrr!! then I started to unload the fruit and veg from the cardboard box and discovered a set of keys????????? Phoned OH at the farm shop - had he lost any keys? Yes, so ......... back into the car and back up the road to return the keys.
Now I'm back I've got new potatoes and green beans cooking for a Salade Nicoise this evening and I need to sit down for a few mins to recover so that I've got the energy to catch a bus into town to meet up with ex colleagues for a few drinks ... it's a hectic life, being retired :-0

Hello everyone I've not already said good morning to

Panda, the only pics of Glasto that I've seen have been of pretty long-legged women covered in mud - don't think Pdoc looks like that

As for rhubarb recipes, this is a favourite in this house

Once you get it clear regular use of a Dutch hoe in the growing season prevents weeds from getting established.

Hi spudulicus

Some varieties of potatoes don't produce flowers - nothing wrong with them, it's just what they do, or rather don't do.

It seems that the problem is affecting some of us and not others.

I've been looking at the local news website here in Norfolk - did you see that Snoodle's garden was hit by a hailstorm? There's been flooding over in her part of Norfolk too - hope her garden's not been hit again
