Lot cooler and more overcast today. Thank goodness that wind has dropped too - have come to the conclusion that wind is only good for sailing & kite flying. Even then in moderation...
Have moved my tomatoes into the potting shed for a couple of days. It's forecast to be down into single figures for the next couple of nights and I could do for the fruits to start ripening before we get to September! A couple are finally starting to colour up - so hopefully we'll be able to try them soon.
I've already started to put the brakes on the plants by picking off new flowering shoots. They probably wouldn't have time to develop into decent fruit before October - hopefully now all the energy will be channelled into ripening the existing fruit.
Lily P - glad to hear the vet couldn't find anything too amiss with your poor dog.
Joyce - love black & white cats (don't tell my ginger boy though!)
Hosta - hope you make it home safe and sound. We've virtually given up on holidays that require air travel. OH does it (& all the airport security that goes with it) for work. Queueing for security, opening your lap top case, taking off your belt / shoes etc etc is ok once a year for a holiday. Rubbish when it's every single working day - often more than once a day.
Made beetroot and apple relish this morning - looks very pretty - want to try it with a nice piece of strong cheddar - recipe says wait a minimum of 3 months
