Evening all - Sounds as though some of you have been busy and others have just been eating sausages and sugar lumps all day
I was taken out to Southwold for a surprise seafood lunch via a couple of nurseries (plants impulse purchased - none from 'the shopping list'). Warm and dry - lovely day all round.
Glad to hear PF and RB are doing ok and M-U's puss cats have had a nice birthday treat - we do spoil them don't we?
Sunny - I had 3 raised bed for veg. Great fun and very productive. After a couple of years the local vole population discovered them and decided to move in and nest under the side walls. Rather disheartening to pull a beetroot or carrot and find nowt but air under a pristine top shell. Little bu$$ers were eating them from the bottom upwards
Seeing the words 'drought' and 'threat of hosepipe ban' when I'm in the middle of planting the new border is also quite disheartening.
On the bright side - we last had a hosepipe ban in 2012 - when I was planting a large woodland border. Having announced a ban it then rained solidly for about 3 months - didn't need to do any watering.
