My goodness I did a lot of gardening for an 86 year old if I say it myself. All my alliums planted in pots, tender subjects repotted and placed in clean area of the conservatory, beans, tomatoes and lots of bunches of flowers picked, more of the conservatory windows cleaned and shelves polished ready for more plants,hoping to get it done by next weekend and floor washed and table brought back in. I emptied 8 tomato plants that had finished fruiting from their big pots si, when i have grown on Mr. fothergill's plug plants for sept. which are trailing winter pansies they can occupy the pots which are now cleaned and waiting for occupants. Days like this are so satisfying. My harvest was amazing as i fed 6 households with beans and tomatoes last week and did not expect to crowd the kitchen table again today. and the forecast is for more of the same weather for most of this week! Lots of apples to harvest tomorrow. Now to have a cup of tea and enjoy doing flower arrangements before I decide what to make for supper. I do have some very large potatoes which i also dug up today which would make great chips with their skins on as they have no blemishes at all.
