Steady rain in Bristol this morning and puddles everywhere so water butts should be filling up and the potager getting a good soaking. Bodes good for the runner bean crop. I will have a chance now to catch up on the office work for Mr. Fothergills trials. Time to make lots of soup and pasta sauce for the winter. I picked a big bowl of plums yesterday so will make some plum crumbles and freeze them as well. Next to gardening I like cooking best of my hobbies, especially on a dreich very dark and wet Saturday. So fortuitous the Bristol in Bloom judging was early this year. This weekend would not have been such an enjoyable task for the judges.
