One of the best little gadgets I've bought Dave, works a treat and makes sure the legs come out too.
Just removed the first tic of the year. Hate the b....y things.
Nice steady rain here last night, everything is looking verdant this morning
Many people , myself included, use raised beds because carrot root fly is a poor flier and stays low to the ground. You can also create a fleece barrier or use enviromesh, all of which are very effective.
First sweet pea flower. Good amount of rain last night, you can almost watch the plants growing! Planted out some summer cabbages and some more lettuce that were started in modules. Potted 4 ' Gardeners Delight' and 3 ' Moneymaker' into buckets in the greenhouse.
Good amount of overnight rain here in Kent, mild and overcast this morning.
Floss and my better half at our lunch spot on today's walk.
I know what you mean Fairy, I've taken too many summit pics where you can barely make out the cairn. But as we're only up for the week we'll find some lower level stuff, I often head for the coast if it's really bad.
Thanks Fairy, I did see the programme, recognised lots of areas. I tend to work on the basis of 2 clear days in the hills is a good return for a full week. Some times we do better, others worse but we'll be out whatever.
Can't compete with the grandeur of the Scottish Hills but can't complain about views like this from the South Downs. It's the closest we get to a 'ridge' walk in the South of England, hope we get some weather like this when we venture in to Fairy's neck of the woods in a few weeks time.
