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.

Sweetpeas damaged by heavy rain

They'll put out some side shoots and grow thicker and bushier - it's just gardening I'm afraid 

Rhubarb v Foxgloves

I've got foxgloves in the veg patch - they're not edible of course, but they do no harm and don't affect the fruit and veg.  Enjoy them both

Dewdrops, budge up - I'm joining you on the sofa   I've got a chestikoff too - I've taken rubbish to the tip, been to the Farm Shop for food and the GC for compost, but it's too drizzly out there to take a poorly chest.

The UK has been in the EU for over 40 years ...... it is a relatively small island and is now the 5th largest economy in the world .... how much better can it get???
