Pics from today...

I started preparing this tin for herbs today (holes, polystyrene, manure, compost - that kind of thing).

And I sowed some seeds for Autumn produce - hopefully... This bed is where the onions were until recently. Weeded it over and planted some seeds - excellent. I've never really done the late summer sowing before so I'm really looking forward to seeing how it turns out!

Kale, carrots & radishes by the look of it...

Quite a few of the winter squash plants have pretty respectable fruitlets on them now. They are snaking around everywhere getting in the way:-)

Hannah'n'Tim'n'Uncle Michael.

And when we got home we had lovely gooseberry pie as part of Lisa's family birthday tea.

Andrew and Hannah were very cheerful all the time they were down the lottie:-) They were kind enough to say it was looking as good if not better than it ever had which was ample rcompense for countless hours of backbreaking labour since April...

And of course they were both...

...very helpful.
Still smiling and looking forward to a lovely tea at Grandma's.

Last orders...

Here is Dad's old Honda on its last trip to the tip before being traded in tomorrow. I never felt completely at home in a gold 4x4 but it has happy associations with F. I. Lee and it is a bit of a wrench to let it go. Uses far too much petrol though...

This evening I dodged the rain to pick 7lb of gooseberries and then sat in the shed reading an old paperback on home winemaking by the light of a gaz lamp.
Yesterday I dressed the redcurrant and blackcurrant bushes with fish, blood and bone and watered it in.

German Cherry Tart :-)
