I am on a bit of elastic-now back in again-what a gay day.

Going back to Maud's post earlier-if you were a Mr Humphries or a Mrs Slocombe and worked in a dept store what fun that would be -I so want there to be a PC World working in the Met

Storing seeds

I had some earlier in the year from Premier Seeds just sowed what I wanted and resealed it-that was 6 months ago and just had a look- the seeds are still loose -nothing has rotted-so I would leave them in the plastic bags

It is for early birds although I have been to some where the sellers go on to one in the afternoon-other than I don't know-why do jumbles sales-if such things still exist- start at 2pm?

Have planted out 30 begonias-cost 9p

Well maud-I was just in the middle of digging up this currant bush and it snapped showering dirt all over me-so not happy

I think you can buy replacement handles-just looked and Amazon sell them

so am sure they are available elsewhere but as we in the throw away generation probably not widespread

I am going to look at buying  a replacement spade one from a carboot sale

She will be ok

Have tidied up the plants and discarded the mouldy bits-and now they look even more of a bargain-we had a short bright interval and took the opportunity to cut the grass it is so green and lush yet has not been fed- other than the odd chicken poo- for 12 months-a good year for the hay-makers?

You and Lottie will never reach retirement age so I wouldn't worry- it will be 97 in 20 years time

Eric Sykes has gone

Tomatoes not setting fruit

My feeling is that this will be a common problem this year-you seem to be doing all you can-it is a matter of sun and increasing the humidity-a lot of the flowers on mine have just dropped of or just sat there- it is so soul-destroying-just live in hope-not a lot of comfort I know.

It probably does differ from variety to variety.
