    Ooooh missed this yesterday, Happy Birthday Finn. :good: :cool: Have the schools not broken up for summer yet Jenn? They finish at the end of June here. :confused:

    Not to worry Vashte, we all have an off day now and again; I’m sure you’ll be back on top form soon. :rose:

    Morning Clickers, wall to wall grey and rain, what a change from yesterday. The veg will be glad of it though, especially the spuds, no matter how much I water, rain does a better job. ;-) The big down side is no garden time, so may be reduced to housework. :-( Have a good day all. :-)

    • Good morning Karen, Mother Nature still hasn’t got the idea of rain overnight and sunny days :-( HW :bad: , we always have to pay for our pleasures ;-) I hope the rain ceases later for you but you can polish up your domestic godess halo in the meantime :lol:

    • Good morning Karen :high-five:
      I have cobewbs to clear and new beds to make for the weekend visitors :-) Have a good day :clover: :rose:

      • Morning Anne, have you family coming to stay? That will be lovely. :rose:

        • D-in-L and her 2 daughters are coming via the Pres and staying overnight, en route to having a week with our Daughter, Then after that week they will motor back and stay again :lol:
          My Brother andSister-in-law were here when we arrived and they have just gone home today, so it’s busybusy and lots of fun in the sun :lol: Just had a tasty supper…[Read more]

    • Morning Karen :-) I completely echo Cilla on rain but it should comfort you to know you have the best type ;-) Please send me some. Have a lovely day :-)

      • You are very welcome to all of it Jane, we’ve had more than enough today – and it’s still hissing down. :disappointed:

    Looking good Tony, :good: mine will be a bit behind your as we had some late frosts this spring, but my Lady Christl are cropping well. :-)

    Morning Cilla, thanks honey. Was the summerhouse not very hot? :confused: It was scorching here yesterday, I was hosing down the greenhouse every hour, even the cucumbers were wilting!

  • VegVamp posted a new activity comment 6 days, 20 hours ago

    Morning Cilla, always lovely gathering some of your own veg; :good: the carrots look great. Good job on the pond clearing, ours needs the same treatment, and a wee froggie, excellent. :cool: :dance: Enjoy Calke if you go. :-)

    Morning Clickers, another great day yesterday, mostly spent weeding onion beds, washing the car and hiding in the shade. ;-) Still 17℃ outside at the minute, so not great for sleeping. Off to Bangor again today, but hoping to get back early enough for an hour or two in the garden. :good: Have a good day all. :-)

    • Morning Karen. It is certainly warm for gardening. I sat in the summerhouse with a Solero mopping my dripping hair :lol: Safe journey to Bangor and back and I hope all is as well as it can be :rose:

    • Morning Karen, safe journey and hope the day goes well.
      It’s sunny here and set to be about 25d, so I will be finding some shade, the last box hedge is in mainly shade, so that looks like today’s job along with some grass mowing.
      Hope you get your gardening in :clover:

    • Morning Karen :-) Have a good trip – safe journey :rose:

    Hi Cills, isn’t it lovely when production all kicks off. :cool: :good:

  • VegVamp posted a new activity comment 1 week ago

    It’s about 16/17 years old now Jane, which is about their useful fruiting life apparently. I will miss it though. :-(

  • VegVamp posted a new activity comment 1 week ago

    Morning again Jane, I’m loving breakfasts at the minute. ;-) Think this might be the final year for the peach tree. I’ve had awful trouble with mealybug on it, and it has weakened it badly, so it might be time to let it go to the great orchard in the sky. ;-)

    • Oh, no, Karen – isn’t there a Dr Peach? You’ll miss that tree so much…

    Morning Jane & Cilla, :bad: on the slugs, they have been dreadful this year, but :good: on the dragonflies and that is a cracking photo. :-)

  • What a great job Jane, you’ve worked really hard! It all looks very productive, and what a bonus with the robins. :love:

    Morning Clickers, great weekend of weather, so have spent 2 days in the garden. ;-) Veg production is ramping up with peas, beans, spuds, beetroot, salads, assorted berries and best of all peaches all on the menu. :good: On the down side have had a real disaster with carrots this year, compliments of root fly. :-( First 2 lots are all binned and…[Read more]

    • Morning Karen :-) I was wondering about your peaches – fantastic that they’re now on the menu :good: Just about time to sow some carrots, I think – fingers crossed for you. I don’t have that problem but I do have a snail/slug problem this year. Have a great garden day :-)

      Morning Karen…….peaches, yummy :-) We had lovely Kentish cherries down at H’s. My runners are starting to flower, haven’t pulled any carrots yet, some of the beets are a reasonable size , courgettes flourishing and toms ripening but cuc are still small. Have a lovely day again :-)

    Morning Lynn, seem to keep missing you recently. :disappointed: Between you & Cilla the sun is making little appearances, so thank you. They might be delicate, but this was a feisty wee monster, and gave my hand a good pecking when I picked him/her up. :lol: I’ll try and send you some rain – during the night of course. ;-) Have a good day. :rose:

    • Thankyou👍
      We’ve noticed that the doves, we have a pair nesting close by and visit the bird table every morning, they will tend of the pigeons &jackdaws, even seen one have a go at a magpie.
      Hope the hand survived!! 💐
