    More yummy vegetables there Runners. I remember the name Runners but am ashamed to admit I do not remember anything that he did.
    It is lashing down again now so my decision wasn't all bad

    Afternoon to all.
    It's boiling hot here and the peak of heat wave will be at monday. Not pleasant at all. I was reading most of the day and now is little eye resting time.

    Runny, nice looking veggies. I must try Runner beans next year. Usually make risotto with marrow, or bake it in oven with spuds and carrots. Sometimes just grill it and covered with olive oil and garlic.

    Lants I love root vegetables. Never have patient to wait and always check it.

    Shredding completed and even taken down to the compost heap. Garden is squelchy like a bog. Wind had blown over some pots so I did do bit of tidying up. More yellow alerts for tomorrow with thunder and lightning threatened again. I need to sm shop soon as I'm nearly out of milk and that will NEVER do.

    Such a downpour this afternoon with some thunder, haven't seen the lightning yet.  Runny I love runner beans.  Ante i'm partial to root vegetables too.  It must be very satisfying growing your own.    Lantana I don't buy red meat either.   Hazel it's good to get those fiddly jobs out of the way.  Removing my personal details from docs for the bin this afternoon it can be quite time consuming.  Pottered round and had a lay down and had some chamomile tea. Aaaaaaaah.

    Our dire forecast hasn't materialised....yet.  Sunny all day apart from a brief shower at 4pm.

    Love all types of vegetables and might try beans in a large pot next year. A neighbour brought me some beetroot this afternoon so I'll roast it in tinfoil later.

    Good to get rid of the clutter of paperwork LB. It's one of those wet day jobs.

    Rubee, I'm always surprised how the earth is still dry a few inches down even after lots of rain.

    Evening🙂 We’ve had a little rain. Just 3 sharp showers each lasting about 20mins last night and this evening. Nowhere near enough for the garden - but better than nothing. Has been in the high 20’s, very humid and very breezy so rather a draining day.

    Nevertheless we’ve cracked on and prepped the garage ready for painting. Will be good to get that job out of the way this week. 

    Nice veggies Runners and Ante. Not too keen on runner beans - more of a pea person myself. I adore being able to pick fresh peas and eating them straight from the pod.

    Hope you’re all staying safe - whether it be from cat poo, stormy weather, power outages, or house guests...

    Heaven is ... sitting in the garden with a G&T and a cat while watching the sun go down
