Had this brilliant kneeler for my birthday. I think it will get plenty of use and help my back!

Have had loads of onions from the garden this year. I'm sure they'll be gone in no time as we use a lot in sauces and other things.

Lazy Sunday

I have mowed the lawn and trimmed it's edges with the strimmer this morning. The grass was wet which made it a bit of a job - I wish now that I had left it until this afternoon as it has dried up nicely now and the sun is shinning. Nevermind.

I have picked more lettuce - enough to keep me in salad at work for the week I should imagine. Also picked the cucumber which will be a nice addition to the salads! There was one courgette on the plants which was a reasonable size - hopefully there will be more to go with it in the week.

Doesn't look like the tomato plants are going to be that productive this year. No tomatoes yet at all. Five of the plant look worse for wear and two look just about okay. Will give it a little longer but would be nice for them to have a blast of sun!

Courgette Plants

The courgette plants have done extremely well in their spot at the bottom of the garden and have become enormous! The variety I have got this year are very prickly - I have not known a courgette plant have so many spines before unless of course it is the size of them?!

This is my second crop of potatoes from one of the potato bags. Two more bags to go!

Been busy in the garden this morning. Have weeded the vegetable patch, pulled up the onions and left out to dry, harvested potatoes, picked the remaining peas, and sewed some more lettuce and fennel.
I've also mowed the lawn which was quite wet still but looks much better. It hadn't been mown for a while as we haven't had a dry day to do it.
Looking forward now to a roast dinner with home grown potatoes, courgettes and peas!
