Hope you've got plenty of room in your compost bin PP - we nearly filled ours just using the rake on our little front lawn!!! I had to use goggles, the dust was a bit grim as we've not had proper rain for months.
It's been really hot and sticky here today, and I've been baking ...

Eaten? How? Holes nibbled in them, or whole beans gone?
If some of the vines are dying, are they getting enough water? Here in East Anglia we've had a very dry couple of months.
I agree - I can't see anything that looks like JKW in any of those photos.
Hope they've got dressing gowns DD
That's good to hear DD
It's good to hear that you're on the mend too Frank
Good morning Chicky and the rest of you as you arrive

It's warm out there, nearly 19C, but there's a sort of misty dampness in the air - a real autumn feel - but the grass is still the colour of cardboard
