Good morning Ashdale - I don't think Wonky will mind me telling you that she's in Ipswich   I'm near Norwich

Whereabouts are you?

Lowest temp last night in my garden was 6.6C  Runner beans (planted out) look perfectly happy and the tomatoes in the little greenhouse were snug under some bubble wrap and they look happy too.  I'm keeping their pots fairly dry.

Good morning all   Think I'm recovered

Congratulations Edd! Brilliant!!!  Do you have squashed black finger and thumb nails?   Shame we don't have stone here, or you could come and build me a wall

Panda   Do Tesco's know where food comes from?  I bought some fresh peas in pods from Tesco and the chap on the checkout asked what they were?  I said 'Peas' - 'No they're not.' he said 'peas are round'

We love Shield bugs and welcome them into our garden  - they're not a pest in the UK

Patience Primrose   I wouldn't be expecting flower buds quite yet

Wonky, your garden's in the town centre and very sheltered - I think it'll be fine.

Our lowest temp tonight is due to be 9C, then on Thursday morning at 4am it'll go down to 5C - according to the Met Office website. 

Oh eck!

The Met Office forecast for this area is saying the drop in temp will be at 4am on Thursday morning - only down to 5C, so not much lower than the 7/8 we've been getting.

Hmmm - looks like here in East Anglia we're not getting the drop in temperature until the wee small hours of Thursday morning ...

Oh no.....not again...

So very sad

If you're not aware of Shelterbox - can I ask you to take a look

Such practical help!

Apple Tree Dying?

I would rather give a tree a bucketful of water once a week than a little evey few days.
