Needless to say that one of the first things I did after unpacking, putting the wash on and sorting through the post, washed down with lashings of cups of hot tea, was to get to the Lotty.
THE WEEDS had taken over and I spent over 4 hours just weeding alone.
Tomato blight had also taken a good hold, so I rescued a few green tomatoes and had to take the infected plants and the fruits to the local dump.
I also picked over 8 pounds of runner beans (and there are more to come!!) and 1.5 pounds of french beans, along with some peas and the last of the brocolli.
And this is the result of my chutney making!
Another thing to report is that some very kind lady GAVE ME A SHED!
Yes - for free - actually it's 2 sheds joined together
So I will have a 12ft x 4ft shed (which is within the maximum square footage allowed - phew) and I can't wait until it's all put together, but I will need to organise a base first.
So at the moment it's flat on the floor and Nigel & Derek have kindly covered it in tarpaulin due to all the rain we had whilst I was away.
SO A BIG HUGE THANK YOU TO JULIA FROM WALLINGTON, SURREY
and to the Freecycle site
