Good morning! We have more sun, rather hazier than yesterday but still - it shines! I'm loving it!
Yesterday ended up very busy indeed. It started with a trip to the most local garden centre which is also very good. No fusses and fancies, just honest, well brought up plants, thousands and thousands of them! £1.20 each or five for a fiver for veg and herbs which seems extremely good value seeing as they are such good quality.
After failing miserably with the home sowed tomatoes and cucumbers, I'm not going to try growing them from seed again. I know it is better value but this way you can choose from a wide range of different kinds. I got tomatoes, cucumbers, three more strawberry plants because they looked so very good and two chilli peppers, apache which I have grown before and liked. I also got a codling moth trap for the garden (must protect those baby apples), some wire rings, some canes and some slow release granules.
Then it was a case of knuckling down and getting them all sorted. They're all in now and none has wilted or started looking unhappy so fingers crossed. Here's some photos of the kind I show year after year . . .
I need to bustle around and get the house in good nick. Then Chris is coming round for a garden chat after which I must plant out the tomatoes she is so generously giving me, bless her.
Then it is packing, etc, because this afternoon I am back off to Dad's. My brother is also coming down from Scotland this afternoon so we can have a long weekend - I haven't seen John for about a year and a half, not since Christmas 2019.
Have a great day, everyone. Enjoy the fine weather while it lasts. :-)
