It's too early to tell the weather but it looks dull and gloomy out there just as yesterday was most of the time. No rain, just not much sunshine.
The last tomato plant arrived and is now in the bed. I have to say, the poor thing looked a bit sad in its little box but seems to be perking up a bit more after a good night's sleep. It is a Giulietta, an Italian plum. The photo is copied from the Suttons web site. If it looks half as nice as the one in the photo, I shall be very pleased and it will more than earn its cost, I am sure.
Now it is just the caring bit - watering, pruning, dead heading, etc - to keep it all good and healthy! Next week the allotment must take precedence. The corn, beans and courgette are all ready to go in and the grass must need a haircut by now, not to mention a good hoeing over for the soil.
Today I am hoping that Beth and Alex will come over for lunch. That would be nice but if not there will plenty more times so no problem. For the rest of the day I intend to sew and knit, finish off the viral shawl with an edging and generally enjoy my retirement life. I am getting to be a lazy old so and so and very nice it is too!
B: yogurt with blueberries and granola (yum)
L: smoked salmon pate, rice cakes, carrot sticks and salad, fruit
D: chicken in tomatoes, cabbage, new potatoes, strawberries and yogurt
Have a wonderful day, wherever you are and whatever the weather!
