This is the last year of my Greenhouse for me, too dodgy on my Feet.

Awww that's a shame, you will miss your greenhouse!  Japanese theme sounds lovely though.

Been and watered in Greenhouse, picked three lovely Cucumbers from my late Plant, more Tomatoes, and the last of the Peppers. Watered the Garden Pots as they were so dry.  Marrows coming on.  The Asters are in full Bloom, and the Dahlias, making a lovely show of colour.

Watered in Greenhouse, another Bag of Tomatoes, more Cucumbers coming along, love to see them hanging, Spiders getting very prolific.   Three lovely Marrows nearly ready for Consumption.  Asters and Dahlias putting on a lovely Show, and Apples getting big, first year have had anything on my Bramley Tree. Going to pick and dry some Bay Leaves before they are past their best.

I would put the Bay leaves in a brown envelope and then in a drawer; that way they don't go brown and crunchy and the flavour seems to last longer.

I'll try that again!

Never heard of that TA, but will certainly give it a go.  Was asked Today, if I had any of my Calendula Ointment for Sale, well, stopped making it last Year, so did not grow the usual amount of Flowers, but do have the makings, so might do it, as miss it myself, so useful for sore Places, and Cuts.

A lovely dry mild day here so have been out clearing leaves. I have buds and new leaves on the Apple tree.

I still have petunias, nasturiums, violas and Aubretia flowering. And oak leaf lettuce growing in the veg trug

Never give up Tomorrow is another day.
