Busy day today. Oh is not going to be around much in next three weeks, so decided to cut hedges on front,lawns, front and back, shred cuttings ,and I got to clean up after him.

Compost bins are full so I filled a builders bag instead as a temporary measure.

Then we had hot dogs, then I planted the courgettes, squashes and outdoor cucumbers.

Now I,m in the Jacuzzi  bath with a glass of wine.

I've still got to fill up the slug pubs.

I have a load of seedlings of bishops babies that are doing a lot better than expensive tubers I bought from the garden centre. They're not named varieties this year, but I pick the best seedlings and label and overwinter. My large yellow is currently four foot tall and budding up. It was grown from seed two years ago.

Need some more plant ID's please
