Mine are in the garden watching the bees at the moment and im just hoping they wont try to catch them. My cats spend most ot their time in the back garden so  i try and grow plants that are good for birds and insects in the front. I wouldnt be without my cats foe anything they have helped me through some really rough times health wise. I do love to watch the butterflies and so far they havent caught any, or none that i know about.

I use the conmpost as a conditioner around the garden. Have had a few surprises along the way strange plants popping up. Always try to be careful what goes into the compst bin but there is always a few mishaps. I wouldnt worry too much about it.

Bean confession

Oh yes ive done the same. Got the labels mixed up between the french and borlotti beans. Runner beans are plentiful and have already blanched and frozen some. Thought i had been so good this year labelling seed trays as i went, obviously not. Oh well it makes for an interesting life.

Another mouse in last night , not sure where it has gone as there is no left overs for me to clear up.The cats latest game is bring them in and let them go, much more fun to chase them around in the middle of the night.

Wonderful weekend weather wise got plenty done including cutting my foot and colliding with a lump of concrete so now have large graze on my leg. Of course its raining today, went into town as we have a market on wednesdays. The fruit and veg is really good, so everything i cant grow i get there. Think its supposed to brighton up this afternoon so maybe i will get some gardening done later.
