I typed a long posting on my lap top whilst laying on the sofa resting, and added more during the day, and saved it in Word. This evening it told me to download updates which I did - and now it will not connect to my main pc or access the internet so that I can download it - so for now here are a few photos that I took this evening.
This is what lush grass looks like after four days of not moving the chicken run. Amazing isn't it and they free ranged for a few hours each day and had a whole stem of purple sprouting broccolli to eat too! As well as their normal rations of course.
It will grow back though - when we get rain - I think!
Runner beans that I planted on the 21st April in the cardboard inner rolls from toilet paper. I planted them out tonight with a bean seed too - as insurance if I have any failures or a late crop if I don't!
A week ago, this asparagus was just a few inches high and a few stems - now it is waist high - amazing how fast it grows and without any rain too!
My potatoes need earthing up when I get some energy.
xxxxxxx Here was supposed to be the photo but blogger won't load it. Doh!
I will try again tomorrow
A view through the netting of my DIY fruit cage made out of old pallets and netting. Just little corner of it - I am chuffed to bits that my cuttings are now bushes and laden with the promise of currants to come. I have raspberries in there and strawberries too, a logan berry, and gooseberry as well a different currants. Guess who will be busy making jams this summer - and more flavoured vodka!
I took the next two photos in Hertfordshire through the car window as we travelled on a new bypass.
Fields of rapeseed - the bane of the hayfever sufferers life this time of year.
Instead of grass verges as usual the rapeseed had taken over - even lush on the central reservations - it grows where nothing else seems too and with little rain!
Looks nice and bright though!
