Who said gardening was a relaxing pastime?  Not me, worn out again.

Campari time might come early today & won't be Campari

When home I've planted 3 Cosmos purity out in garden and will see how they go on. Rest still in pots.

No rain as yet but some due, haven't watered so if it doesn't happen I'll do veg tomoz'.

Clari (soz you can get me at playtime) but my experience of a neighbour with chickens is they ming. Guess due to lack of care & attention.  Plus you need someone to look after them when you have jollies.

I do G.pig duty next door but wouldn't volunteer for chickens.

Time for a sit down on bench me thinks.

OL it is different to netting bit like a ...I don't know how to describe..Google GH shading  Doesn't sound like you need it yet. But good to be prepared. Like David I have strung fleece inside at certain times of day & moved later. Will use shading when we get lots of direct sun on GH.

David, I agree it can be a so and so to remove, also if the weather changes and we need maximum light in GH netting can be removed.

rosemummy that is a shame, it can be tricky judging when to sow toms as we don't know what the weather will do and it's tempting to try and get a head start, or leave later due to weather we had last spring  I sowed mine the last week in March. They went into final buckets in GH yesterday and have flowers on.

I agree with Welshonion I would buy some for this year so you get to enjoy them and have a go next year.

Good morning all.

Just seen Mr.T chatting with weather girl at Chelsea, his show garden looks interesting.

I'm really wanting my poppies to open, huge buds on them.

Hugs for bitten & nettled & salt mine slaves.

Lovely garden John H
