Good morning all   I appear to be having a lie-in 

OH is going to turn the compost today and make room for the next lot of stuff - cosmos, squash and tomato plants and before long the bean vines will join them. 

Anyone knows this type of rose?

Oh Pat! ((hugs)) what a night you and your hub have had ((hugs))  glad you're ok now.

I've been busy and the last two batches of grape jelly  have been made, jarred and labelled. Piccalilli, spiced plums and honeyed pickled onions are next on the list. 

Since then I've been out in the garden picking squashes and beans, and now I shall slice potatoes for a dauphinoise and put a small piece of lamb shoulder to roast gently, stuck with anchovies and garlic and wrapped in foil. 

Then I shall finish sewing up Wonky's new jumper ... got to keep her back warm 

Old,spent potting compost.

High temperatures can cause squash plants to produce too few male flowers, to it may be that there were not enough to pollinate your female blooms.

This happened to me with the last few competitions and, after trying several things to solve it, I couldn't enter. And again today. Wish they would sort it out.
