 These are San Marzano, someone sent them to me on the seed swap, they have been fantastic, still loads to come, all turning red. They are huge, but bear the weight very well.

 Hosta! No need for anything special, and your garden is beautiful whatever you haven't done. We all have tatty bits out there at this time of the year, really no need to worry about anything.

Hope OH has a safe journey back down.

i have just texted  Dove, I wonder if they got caught in the rush hour traffic, hope not!!

Verdun, thank you very much for the offer of a bit of the Stainless Steel Aconitum

SGL, we never take out milk out of the freezer until we have run out, it's a bit like putting a new toilet roll on, seems to be a job OH just can't find out how to do!

the milk then gets put in a bowl of warm water, within seconds there's enough for a cuppa. 

As I only get to the shops once a week to ten days, it has to go in the freezer.

I haven't been to our nearest big town, Plymouth, for 12 years, don't like towns.i am off to Morrisons this morning, they have opened a Tesco right opposite, won't be using that, Morrys much nicer, and they gave me a £10.00 voucher last week.

have good day everyone, weathers good today, rain tomorrow though, poor Dove!

Ooo! Verdun, will your Aconitum set seeds do you think, please remember this poor seed grower if it does.

such a lot happened on here since earlier this pm.

samples, my surgery won't accept them in anything other than the jar they supply.

doggy piddle, never needed to try.

Cakes wrapped, yes, DD may have some for desert.

Doves hollies, plenty of R&R I think she may be past rock n roll.

never can tell though. x
