    I was going to finish planting some young herb plants in pots, top up the potato tubs, & wash some more pots, but unfortunately, it just hasn't stopped raining. I think it's forecast to be a little drier tomorrow (we will believe that, when we see it), so it looks like I am going to have to do those jobs tomorrow

    Sod it. Tomorrow is allotment day if the weathers ok. Climbing frames for peas and French Beans to erect and sow beans and peas. Also sow mangetout peas and dwarf French beans.

    If I have time I will plant out my swedes and possibly beetroot seedlings.

    If I have lots of time I may even plant out a few brassicas.

    Unless something else crops up of course. I need to take out some pointing at home with a disc grinder but every day this week my neighbour has had washing out and the wind was blowing that way.

    Urgh - I had that done a few years ago and the mess was horrendous. Cover up anything that you don't want covered in a layer of very fine dust - things like leafy veg are almost impossible to wash afterwards!
