Tomatoes are go!

Everything is in, planted up, watered and looking slightly droopy. Guess that its transplanting shock – it will pass. 

Cucumbers are a new venture, I’ve bought 2 plants, hoping that they’re self fertilising or else I’ve got one of each gender. 

Rhubarb season has started with a vengeance, first harvest today garnered 9.5lbs of the stuff. Last years total harvest was about the 30lb mark so this year looks set to be huge, we’ll be sick of the stuff by this time next year. I thought these things were supposed to go in cycles, good year/bad year. Obviously not.


Clifford fell in the stream. Large, wet and very smelly red dog with black bits of mud and ??? unspeakable dead thing.
