Hello , good to hear about Bengal , you should put a picture of him/ her on site 

Been very busy on garden and allotment 

Garden looking a bit better and o/h sorted out g/h , things where a bit pot bound , g/h has tomatoes , indoor cucumbers , aubergines but a bit small ( not sure they will produce anything ) , cape gooseberrys not grown these before 

Allotment,  just got back , planted out door cucumbers / gherkins , french , runner & borlotti beans and outdoor tomatoes all from g/h - this is a new typs of gardening called " planting around holidays" 

picked strawberrys , spring onions , broad beans , beetroot and radish 

also harvested garlic planted last autumn , done very well , still more to come 

did dig so swift potatoes up a couple days a go and disappointed with yield but may have got a bit of blight while on hols

Hope you are keepping well
