    • Rebuild the other part of the greenhouse beds
    • Plant out the toms and peppers destined for the other part of the green house bed.
    • Pot up remaining toms and peppers into MFBs
    • Plumb in more drippers into the greenhouse irrigation for the MFBs
    • Plant out pumpkin plant
    • Plant out some lavender
    • Plant out some Mexican Marigolds

    Done it all except the last 2.

    Tomorrow I intend to:-

    Plant 80 onion sets
    Weed beds 10, 11 and 12
    Plant some Tomatillos
    Sow mixed lettuce seeds
    Sideshoot tomatoes

    That'll do for starters

    Tomorrow I intend to (work permitting):

    Deal with the beetroot - I need the space for a bucket of peas.
    Plant out the peas - I need to find a space for a 2nd bucket.
    Pot up the cosmos
    Sort out the front (peas and beans have got battered by wind and probably need to go round the back, which could be entertaining).
    Deadhead the flowers in the front garden
    Get rid of that calabrese (last summer's plants)
    Pot up brokali and broccoli seedlings and the last 2 chitted beans
    Harvest salads and strawberries
    Dig some compost out of the hotbin (full) and find somewhere to put it
    Sort out the garage which is currently full of miscellaneous bags, buckets and trugs of various types of compost and compostable material (waiting for hotbin space), nets, plastic covers and poles.

    No doubt I will find other things that need attention too.

    Good luck, Balders.

    Anyway, for me tomorrow:

    Water up from the well for the main plot
    Water both plots and seedlings
    Muck and earth up potatoes
    Weed another bed (next to onions)
    Tie up the toms again if I have time
    Paid drudgery

    Fallen at the first hurdle: no water up from the well, so no mucking and earthing up the potatoes. So far, just destroyed a huge wasp's nest that was lurking under the handles of one of my water butts. Will leave the filling till tomorrow. Also disposed of a lot of snails chomping on the courgettes and Dunluce potatoes.

    Other jobs still stand.

    Today I will be making a lemon meringue pie.
    Because if you think I'm going out there in this weather..........you are so so wrong!

    I might brave a visit to the little tunnel to pull up bolting carrots.
