                Most unlikely to have any chance to garden today (rain) or tomorrow and Friday (workmen in house).

                • Finally emerged from having central heating replaced, although house is still mostly in complete chaos. Apart from picking a lettuce, a few tomatoes and a couple of cucumbers and checking for caterpillars (none) I haven't done any gardening since Tuesday.

                        • I have done pretty much all of the tidying that I intend to do before the winter, I leave stuff for the wildlife like seed heads and places under a pile of thin branches and weeds for places to hide. I will be cleaning the bird feeders and putting those out now, the pond will need a bit of attention, but again, leaving places for critters to live in over winter. The greenhouse is mostly finished, so it's now just harvesting carrots and parsnips when required, the cabbages aren't quite ready yet. So hopefully fishing if it stops raining.
                          If I'm not on here, I'm probably fishing.
