Roasting day. Some rain tomorrow.....light though and clearing by mid day

Saw my cousin in hospital today.  He is talking, walking and far better than I thought.  However, he is confused.  Cant get his words and forgets himself. Couldnt remember the name of his sons first.  Clearly pleased to see me....a familiar face in an unfamiliar place.  Still shocking situation thats troubling.  He is in the same ward as my mother was last year albeit he is 30 years younger.

No fungicides or pesticides on my edible crops whatsoever despite any safety assurances.  Best to try and grow veg and fruit understanding what their needs are and what they are prone to.
