Glad you had a lovely holiday Stacey 

Everyone seems to be fairly ok but will improve if the weather does - have I got it about right?

Busy day here .................. 

Help please with quick growing plants for school fete

Dwarf french beans, two to a pot, planted in those little fibre pots that can be planted direct into the soil - they should germinate fairly quickly and should be cropping in 10-12 weeks from germination. 

Pak choi is a quick germinator too. 

Little Gem lettuce.

Pots of mustard and cress.

Morning Pdoc - makes absolute sense to me - cleaners are for cleaning, not tidying - goodness knows where they'd put things 

That being said, when your cleaner's finished up there today, could he/she spare a few minutes to pop down here - we've got a guest for the weekend

Ooooh sunshine - send some up here Panda

I'm getting impatient - my runner beans (sown direct) are taking ages to germinate - there's only one showing so far and that's one of the 'spares' at the end of the row - I know they'll romp away once they get going, but I want to see them now!!! I've checked my notebook and I didn't write the date when I sowed them - think it was around the time Ma got rushed to hospital and we did the Bressingham trip, so not that long ago really ........ must be more patient

Bless them!  That's a story to save up and embarrass them with when they're grown up!!!

Good morning all   no sunshine here   but at least it's dry - so far.

Have to go to GC later - have vouchers to be spent this afternoon only 30% off, so stocking up on compost etc will be done.

Apart from that, h**sew**k and cooking must be done - friend arriving for the weekend tomorrow!!!

If she did it that long ago and your plants are healthy you have no need to be worried.   It hasn't affected your garden.
