    Cutting grass and earthing up the tatties are tomorrows jobs outside and doing the tomato plants armpits in the greenhouse and watering everything edible in the garden, the grass and flowers can fend for themselves.
    If I'm not on here, I'm probably fishing.

                        Finish knocking down my shed, emptied it and knocked down half yesterday so plan on finishing that today, then keep as much of the wood as I can to use elsewhere, bin store, table or fencing I think. Once that's sorted I need to start sorting out all my pots and potting up my Toms, Q's, Peppers, Aubergines and Melons into their final pots in the greenhouse.

                        Then I will do another Raindance as the last one I did was a complete failure.

                            I finished the shed yesterday, it's really opened up the courtyard area at the back of the house. So much space for me to fill with pots !!
                            Today I am going to carry on tidying and pottering in my new outside space. If rains stops play I shall do some more seed sowing and then begin tackling the house which has become an absolute tip after being completely neglected for the whole of May!
