Having seen your Poly tunnel, I can imagine how good it looks now.  That is a lot of potatoes, well done.

I'll try that again!

That reminds me Eileen, I have various packs of herb seeds, I might try sowing them this week, just to see how they do.  Thanks for that.

I'll try that again!

I started mine a couple of days ago, in pots on the conservatory windowsill covered the pots with cling film and they have all sprouted, I planted basil, thyme  , sage and coriander. Believe it or not I have picked strawberries off the plants in the garden this morning.

Never give up Tomorrow is another day.

My Friend , and myself, picked everything there was to pick, from the Garden and Greenhouse, have an idea when this beautiful spell of Weather ends, we will get the 'better stay indoors type of Weather. The bigger Tomatoes, have put into a Box, the amount will keep  me in Tomatoes for about four Weeks, I recon. The smaller greener  Tomatoes will go to make Chutney, as will the Peppers, and the Apples will go in the Apple Pile.  This Year, despite the Weather, I have had my best Harvest, ever.
