flowers on the runner beans
I had three things to do today, no, 4 things...
2. took it to the plot and spread it under the strawberries to keep them off the soil. Recycling in action!
3. Then I cut up the big polythene bag the newest mattress came wrapped in (I just knew it would be useful some time) into a windbreak for the squash bed. I hope it will help keep them a bit protected from the pretty cool wind, but I only had enough for one bed so the cukes are having to tough it out unless I can find some more plastic.
4. strimmed the paths to the front as we are getting inspected this week. I've put some pots of antirrhinums out the front but I can't persuade them to flower in time. Oh well...
I picked a few more strawberries, dug up some potatoes, but then it started to rain very purposefully, so I came home.
