Brilliant tennis!  I was cheering for Federer, but as long as one of them won I don't mind

Hmmm, just done a count back of days since they hatched - baby robins fledge at about 14 days - this is too soon - I'm afraid they've provided someone with Sunday lunch

You'll probably see them around in a day or two, being fed by the anxious parents - the fledglings will be the slightly rusty coloured ones with speckled breasts and big open yellow-edged beaks

I would wait and plant in the early spring.  They won't establish well in hot dry weather.

You could sow some Pak choi now - they germinate and grow quickly and you'll get a harvest of young leaves  in about 30 days, and it should be developing hearts some 15 days later.  It's hardier than it looks and will continue to give you a crop into late autumn. 

I've just sown another couple of rows of Swiss chard - I'll be picking that in mild spells through the winter and well into the spring.

Don't think you've any cause to beat yourself up over not double-digging Mr Toast - I think what you've done so far has been quite remarkable - give yourself a pat on the back and a pint or three
