Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Morning! Had a fab Saturday. Started emptying the greenhouse so that I can get my tomatoes and cucumbers in.


spotted a pod on my broad beans! first time of growing them so very exciting. Not sure if they should be picked now or left for a bit. 


Am just listening to my local gardening show on the radio and will then get back out there.  Just seen my other half off as he's doing a bike ride in Cambridge today. 


Everything is growing merrily. Water butts are emptying fast though.

This is Mr Sydney. We adopted him from the Cats Protection League almost two years ago. He's about 9 years old and is partially sighted and just adorable.


We didn't hear him meow for quite a while. He has certainly found his voice now!  He has become such a character and has us wrapped around his little paws! We love him to bits.


Anyone a member of RHS?

Courgettes - anyone put theirs out yet?

I hope they'll be more little seedlings waiting for you Zoomer. 


i spotted some for sale in a local garden centre so if all else fails you could still maybe buy some...but I know it's not quite as satisfying as growing your own from seed. 


I've only ever had a bumper crop once when I lived in London and sowed them into a patch at the end of the garden. Had loads that year.  I've had success with them since but never as good as that year.  I'm told that consistent watering is the trick.
