I'll vouch for the roominess of Peugeots - Wonky's lovely hub has one, and he's also 6'7".

Too late to seed...or not?

I think part of the problem was that it was still so dry in September; scarifying here was out of the question until we'd had some rain.

Good morning Hosta 

Sorry to hear of the van's demise   another disadvantage of rural life, mud sticking to the undercarriage and encouraging 'rot' ... but your view is worth any of the snags that go with it 

I had planned to sow my broad beans this morning, but we're now on our fourth rainbow of the day and the accompanying downpours that have arrived with them - a bit wet underfoot to venture onto the veg patch so, another coffee then a quick trip to W'rose for supplies ... we're getting low on 'bathroom tissue' 

Dragon plant leaves patchy and brown

If it was in the reduced section, it might be that it had been neglected in store - either under or over watered - and in these cases the effects sometimes appear after the event - with tlc it may well recover, but it might get worse before it gets better. 

Good luck.

Fairy - I heard that French journalist - what he said will stay with me a long time - as you say, so humbling. 

what to plant now

  I spoke too soon - the heavens have just opened and it's too wet underfoot to go onto the veg patch -  but the next fine day will be Broad Bean Sowing Day.

I remember Aberfan so clearly - my cousins lived nearby and my aunt was a teacher at a S Wales village school.  Absolutely horrendous
