    Hi Ryora and welcome from sunshiny South Wales (Baldy is jealous - because its always raining wherever he is).
    The magazine usually arrives about the beginning of the month but if you've just subscribed and yours hasn't arrived, it could be that your sub will start next month, maybe?

    In the last week I have sown another 210 beetroots which hopefully will be ready in October which just so happens to be how long this current heat wave is supposed to last

    I'm sowing some Dwarf runner beans today in the recycling box I've just emptied some Charlotte's out of, thought when the weather gets cooler the box can be dragged into my GH.

    I put in some Autumn King Carrots on the weekend (they've been growing inside for some time),
    I put some more mangetoutes in last week, and they are now sprouting nicely in the greenhouse.

    I've been collecting Doritos Dip Jars for a year and have a huge collection and started cooking the first 100+ Beetroots off last night, by the time family have had theirs we have just enough to last us about a year, I actually had to buy two Jars this year which is why I'm going over board as the weather is so warm and I thought why not, it's not as if I don't have enough seeds in my collection!
