I should have put up a mosquito net. Something bit me in the night and I now have a big itchy red bump on my face. Am trying not to scratch...

I did some archaeological digging at Woking palace, and found an oyster shell. So the Tudors ate oysters - who knew?

I will report back on Pam's garden.

Mmm, veggie omelette. I could have that for tea tonight with everything home grown - potatoes, peas, onions, courgettes - and of course the eggs! And some salad on the side.

I like the sound of the mead but not the turnips so much - although I can sucessfully grow turnips!

I am guessing lasagne with salad (well that's what I'd like anyway!)

Just remember, guano is a good fertilizer!

May be inspired to make a bolognese tonight - and then again maybe not! Am sure the boys won't mind pie and peas, so long as there's gravy.

Could do with some sun here but the forecast for this area is looking more promising - am hopeful of a dry day for Pam's garden visit. Was paining earlier but looking a bit brighter now. May even get out at lunchtime at this rate.

Kate perhaps you could train the pigeon?

Looking on the bright side the broad beans are doing ok! But yes I agree the weeds are thriving - I've chopped lots of nettles and made nettle 'tea'.

Am glad its not just me failing with the radishes. I managed to grow really nice ones the first year I had the raised beds in the garden - must have been the new compost. I'm going to try sowing in a different area. Ever hopeful - I have sown some dwarf french beans.

Kate, just hope the mum comes back!

Seems we are all in the same boat (some people literally!). My tomatoes are a disaster this year, the courgettes are pathetic, and the beans are way behind for the time of year. The potato crop seems to be ok though - probably because I'm on sandy soil.

I will have peas - but will have to go and pick them first. Trouble is quite a few then don't make it home! And I also like them raw in salads. 

Broccoli is good for you.....
