And where are those long, long beautiful June evenings? Nowhere to be seen up here.
Despite that a pot of runner beans trained up bamboo canes is doing well in my small garden. How tough Mother Nature is - I'd have curled my toes up in this too cool summer weather!
The potatoes-in-the-compost-bag thing are not showing any signs of life yet but I didn't plant them until late; I had a spell of feeling very tired.
And there are only five apples on my apple tree this year.
I might try some rocket in a large pot but if I don't get round to that THEN
it's up to the runner beans...!
