Hello all, back from my trip to Cornwall. Had lots of what my brother refers to as 'liquid sunshine' and have brought back a soaking wet tent which now needs to be dried before my next camping trip in 2 weeks time. The tent stood up admirably to the torrential rain and gale force winds.
Best bit was of course Heligan - could have done with longer there but we had invites to a BBQ so had to leave earlier than I wanted. I also didn't get a chance to look round the shop. We have promised ourselves a return trip. And we went on Sunday - by far the best day weather-wise. We have also promised ourselves a return trip to Padstow when my bank balance is feeling healthier!
Becks, sorry to hear about the blight - but your potatoes will probably be alright.
Kate, we will do a midnight raid and chop up the Russian vine.
