I have a red one forming a seed pod. How long do I wait until Harvest, and then when do I sow/propagator/etc.

Fan here at the cliff face is just wafting hot air around. Might have to send the delivery driver out for ice cream

The slugs bossed my echinaceas. I saved the standard purple ones, but all the fancy colours were grazed as fast as they came through.

I think its a good job I had just finished the phlomis and removed the scarf over the face and the ear muffs, before the window cleaner appeared over the garage roof. He thought I wasn't in, because  I hadn't heard him with the ear defenders on.

Surprise tomato plant!

Well it seems to be growing OK.It is late, and may not ripen fruit by September, but if we have a good summer......

Give it a stake and feed it on tomato food.

I shredded the phlomis. It reminded me why I hate the thing. Tiny hairs all over like itching powder. I ended up with kitchen roll and a scarf over my face to stop me inhaling. With ear defenders on I must have looked quite a sight. Still, scarf and ear defenders matched!!!!

Then the window cleaner turned up, and I borrowed his ladders to get on the garage roof and cut down as much apricot as I could with loppers. The thick bits need a chainsaw but that can be done later. I've put most of that through the shredder as well, and filled another builders bag with shreddings. The first one is steaming nicely.

I itch all over now so I'm going to have a long bath and wash my hair. Might see you later.

Panda and friend, have a good time at the seaside. Don't wear out the donkeys, it's too hot for them.
