Penny Black Miniful

Good evening everyone, hope you have had a dry day, just had a few spit spots here but very grey.  I have missed the Penny Black Challenge for a few weeks and feel quite bad because l so love my PB's and feel l have neglected them but with all the Red White Blue things going on l thought l had better join in

Allotment Diary - Thought l would need my waders today with all the rain as l have not been around for a few days.  No floods but the slugs and snails have been helping themselves to my newly planted sweet corn and sprouts (which were netted against the birds),  l am always reluctant to put pellets down but l will have nothing left if l don't.  Planted some celery which was surplus to requirements from my allotment buddy next door he also gave me 3 aubergine plants, l have put 1 in greenhouse at home and planted 2 out not too sure they will grow outside.  My strawberries are going to be amazing this year.

Thanks for stopping by and your comments are appreciated x Susan x

    I'm very jealous of your allotment - I have a little greenhouse but have only managed tomatoes this year. With everything going on earlier in the year I forgot all about my seeds!!
