Those arches will be lovely for your sweet peas and beans. Glad Blackest has cracked how to post your pix, you'll have a team of us soon!

Well you could sow some now, and if they don't make you'll have some in reserve. I've given up waiting for better weather, just cracking on, being aware that it might be a no show.

@ discodave - which bit?

Muckboot clogs ( neoprene lining), thermals, whatever jeans are to hand, huge hairy jumper/ heavy duty fleece, gilet, fleece bandanna, kneepads and gloves.
Bloke rolls his eyes upwards if he pitches up when I'm in gardening mode.
I wonder why?

Well about 20 miles away, but I used to live there, the house up from the Ferryboat pub on the river. Did you live there?

Lovely day today here in South Devon, so spent it stripping the ivy off the coving on top of the walls. And when I was up there, wobbling about on the top of the ladder, I thought 'I've never seen the garden from this angle before'. So took a couple of pics...




 And here's a picture of the ladder!

Left the roots in after clearing last year's crop, they've survived the winter and putting up new growth.
