Well, I've shut the greenhouse and polytunnel up for the first time in months. Found some figs in the greenhouse that the small furry animals missed, and found a hefty hedgehog at the back of the greenhouse(outside). He'd got under a seedtray. When I lifted it off , I think he was swearing at me. very vociferous. A quick round up of gladioli for the house, some victoria plums for supper, and a load of tomatoes, and a cucumber.
I took a carrier bag full of beans to work today, swapped for eggs, and a promise of damsons in a couple of weeks. There's a lot of stuff ready to ripen yet, I'm not ready for frosts yet, but it seems very autumnal out there.
More work tomorrow. We plan to have cream cakes tomorrow, I think we deserve them. Why do people wait until 5 .15 on the day before they go on holiday, to realise they haven't enough medication to last until they get home?
