There's tidy

Well, it is on my side at least, after a morning's strenuous strimming.   

Needless to say there's been no action from The Other Side.  Pah!  Don't think they've been there this last three weeks.  If it were down to them the communal path (that's communal, as in shared, both parties for the use of) would be waist high.

Wallflowers seem poor this year (probably drowned)

but on the plus side the Rainbow Chard is being, errm, colourful. 

We don't actually like it that much but I grew it just for the colour!

And what is it with beans?  This year, just like last year, I sowed my Climbing French and Runners a couple of weeks ago, possibly three weeks ago, to get 'em up and ready for planting out in full vigour in early June.  And where are they?  Nowhere to be seen, just like last year.  I'm going to have to re-do them, and then they'll be late.  Just like last year.  Are you seeing a theme yet?  Cos I am!!  Is anyone else having this problem?  Cos I'm getting a bit fed up with it.

Very neat and tidy! I'm afraid I'm more like your neighbour :-( That chard is very pretty. Good luck with your beans! Mel xx

We don't much like the taste of chard either but it does look good.

Your theme is continuing over here everything is slow, slow, slow!

I've just sowed another batch of beans (no better way to guarantee that the originals will appear!)

My beans have grown well...though I did plant them about 6 weeks ago so maybe you need to put them in a little earlier??

I didn't go a bundle on the rainbow chard but have grown a different variety this year, apparently you can pick the stems when young sand cook and eat them like asparagus....we shall see??

The first lot of runners have just started to show (three so far!)

Evening Woody, thought you'd like to know we have just sent a very tired little Gnome back to her hotel after a yummy supper and more endless chatting :}

She said you said "hi" so this is the reciprocal hello☺

(and if I can leave a comment on your blog, why don't you ever leave one on mine if you visit regularly ... running away and ducking!!)

Woody Wilbury said...

Thanks Bilbo Waggins; glad you've looked after our Gnome! Although, having seen the work she's put in to that Japanese Teahouse, I don't think she's exactly a delicate little Gnome.

I clearly must try harder to leave comments on yours. In my defence, I did once see that the blog was 'invitation only' so I ran scared! Think that was perhaps in an earlier stage of it's lifecycle?

Best regards.

Cheers Woody, my blog had a short spell as 'private' in order to stop the activities of a right pain in the a** I'm sure they still read it but at least they have stopped leaving stupid comments that I felt the need to delete.
