Good morning all 

Another lay in here -  then a leisurely breakfast bowl of melon during which there was great excitement as a delivery van from a local nursery pulled up outside and the driver got out  .......... then he checked the delivery slip and got back into the van and drove up the hill   I'd not ordered anything, but a girl can hope can't she? 

We actually waiting for a delivery of garage shelving - Yodel came yesterday while we were at the SCVA so hopefully they'll try again today .............  OH will be in all day. 

I've just steamed a big cauliflower so I'll make a cheese sauce in a minute and that'll be a Cauli cheese for lunch after tennis 

It's dry here and warm, mainly overcast but with some wonderful spells of brilliant sunshine.  It's amazing how much more light there is in the garden now that one of the ash trees has gone -  the veg patch is getting much more sunlight and isn't getting dried out - it can only be a good thing

Hosta  brilliant news about the sleeping - also the grass snake - I wonder if they might lay eggs in your heaps of woodchippings.

Fidget, poor you   Hope you're feeling right as rain very soon 

We're back from the Giacometti exhibition - fabulous - and yet again we count our blessings to have the Sainsbury Centre right on our doorstep.

DD - there are more postcards in the post

Good morning all. Body clock still on holiday and I'm still in bed waiting for OH to deliver my second coffee.

Not raining at the moment but we've been promised heavy showers so we're going to the Sainsbury Centre for the Giacometti exhibitioN later this morning.

Sorry to hear your sad news Hazel - I hope you and your mum can find comfort in happy memories. 

Carrot Issues

Posted: 13/06/2016 at 19:17

Mick   Those carrots look fine - they just need longer in the ground -  The seed merchant may say they take 90 days to harvest, but that's in optimal conditions - plants respond to the temperature and this spring was cold.

I would expect to see much more foliage before I thought about pulling my carrots - then with my finger  I'd just clear a little of the soil away at the base of the stalks and see how wide the shoulders of the carrots are - if they're not a good size cover them up, give them some water and leave them alone a bit longer.
