I think Nut is right, probably windburn. It should soon resprout and there is plenty of time for it to flower.   Give it a good feed of tomato fertiliser or phostrogen andplenty of water, and put it in a sunny sheltered place.

Marketmore , i have grown outside, I just let them do their own thing, but I prop the actual cucumbers  on an upside down pot or something to keep them off the soil.

OH has set off from Wet Wales. If the Severn bridge is open he should be home for dinner at 8 with a following wind.

 I have barrowed 7 loads of FYM for the runner beans. Forked in,put sticks in,  dusted with FBB, and planted 34 runner bean plants. I just have to water in and tie in.

The french beans are still in the polytunnel. Far too windy for their delicate constitution. (not hardened off enough yet)

I then planted two dozen stocks plants in a block for cutting.

The new red brugmansia is only a foot high but has a flower bud on. My sweet peas have buds on too.

Right coffee break over. Beans to tie to stakes now.

Anyone have damage from last night's tulmultous weather?

A biggish branch is off the top oak (about 2 inch thick and 6ft long.)

Very windy still here. One rose is over,I need to tie it to the fence.

Some alliums flattened.

Delayed honeymoon in St Lucia is booked for February.

I haven't got a frock yet. I wonder if dressing gown and wellies will do.?

My brother was put out when I said no jeans or trainers for him, let alone the women. Wonky, what are you like?

I think all my trees are still upright. I haven't ventured out yet.  The ducks didnt come yesterday. Bad flying weather I suppose. The drake arrived for breakfast this morning on his own.

Well, the party is on the Saturday, but some friends are staying overnight, so I'd like a good Sunday as well.
