    I've not been getting notifications for a few days now, the last problem was no "new" popping up that was hard as you didn't know if you had looked at something or not. Glad someone has spoken to the controller.

    Brought 3 Polmonuim Kaleidoscope and planted them out in very very hot conditions 
    They don’t mind some shade so I expect my 3 plants were relieved that they were planted out of the scorching sun light 
    They got an extra watering as it was nearing 37degrees. Spent the rest of the day on my patio in shade taking it nice and easy. Isn't early retirement great

    Cut back runners and turned over some pumpkins. Pulled some peas and radishes out and hung them out to dry. Shouldn't take long in this heat for the seeds to be ready to harvest. Pulled out the brussel sprouts-all for naught this year without any mesh or greenhouse protecting them from those little white butterflies. Glad to help out the pollinators, but when you don't get to harvest anything but ash, it's not a lot of good.
    Most of the onions are now pulled and drying on the patio. Hopefully it cools down soon so we can go enjoy it outdoors.
    Overall, it's a much tidier view from the kitchen window.

    Some weeding, also took two cuttings from my Lobelia Cardinalis Queen for a neighbour.

    Pricked out "Summer King" foxgloves, sowed Digitalis Lutea, Geum "Cooky" and Geum "Orange Queen". Put some cerinthe major purpurascens seeds to soak before sowing tomorrow. 
    Picked some more sweet peas - in spite of my best efforts the powdery mildew is taking hold, so they may be biting the dust before much longer. Watered all the pots and baskets, when the sun goes in the breeze gets up.
    Harvested some runner beans for tonight's dinner.

    No gardening as at the Heckington Show this weekend. Storms (after all that good weather ) did this to the fields
    If it wasn't for the OH I wouldn't have been there.

    Wasn't good! It was so bad it nearly took the boots off me. It's such a pity as it's a nice show, but three years on the trot is taking the micky.
