I have just realised it hasn't rained for nearly two whole hours: I think it's turning into summer.
How long do leeks normally take to germinate outside? I sowed mine 10 days ago: I think they must be growing in Australia ....
Thanks: that seems like a good occupation come Friday tea time. it's still blowing like a tropical storm, but at least the rain's eased up. The May floods haven't all gone yet: we could do without more of the b*****s.
For brave read b. idiot. No permanent harm done, except to the philadelphus that got landed on. Just discovered Beechgrove happens in Scotland. Is it good?
Beechgrove - who they?
Sotongeoff: you're right - it's 'orrible here.
Went to sort out casualties (broken hollyhocks, roses all over the place) and got blown off my stepladder ... ouch ... just had a strong cup of tea, need a stiff drink.
I think your mum may be right
Veggie night tonight: ratatouille (the only thing from the garden is the oregano) with pasta and parmesan.
Off to town tomorrow to get holiday clothes: waterproof trousers and a sou'wester. Garden now in the 'completely wrecked' category: broken shoots and flowers everywhere and two smashed pots. Still, there's always next year ... I said that last year.
Yes, went to Eden Project last year (and the sun shone nicely). Thank you for the thought.
Right, I'll put that on the list. Looks as if it might take all day?
