Courgettes & dastardly deeds

The courgette plantation is getting into it's stride.



Blackberries are looking good too.


But someone has made off with my hose connector - my good brass hose connector. Foolishly and inadvertently I'd left it attached to the water pipe the last time I used the hosepipe. The water pipe isn't exactly visible; it's set into a metal box flush with the ground so it wouldn't be on view for any passing stranger to run off with. I've left a note inside the metal box, urging its return, but I don't suppose I'll see it again. I've bought a crappy cheap plastic one instead.

Courgette gluts ... don't you just love 'em?

Sorry about the brass hose connector - we had one of those in our first year on the allotment site, and - just like you - we left it on the tap for about twenty minutes, only to rush back and find it had vanished forever.

Ha ha - you'll be up to your ears in courgettes before you know it!

Pity about your brass wotsit ....can't have been a monkey that nicked it - it's been too hot!!!

How's yer back?

Hi Nutty

The back is a lot better thanks; stretching exercises have opened it up a lot, allowing the prolapsed disk to "pop back in"!

And, funnily enough, after a couple of pints it doesn't hurt at all.
