Last Monday I got an email from Jessica at The Aurum Publishing Group asking if I’d like a copy of The Allotment Planner by Matthew Appleby to read and review here. I replied yes please and look forward to receiving it.
Karen, The Garden Smallholder, emailed me on Tuesday to say I’d won her blog post book giveaway. That book is also published by Aurum and I received it on Friday. I will do a review post when I’ve had a proper look through it.
Thursday was a glorious day so late morning I went to the plot and dug up the last of the vegetables. Regular readers will know that I don’t have much luck with carrots but a few that I sowed at the end of June actually germinated and grew. They’re not that brilliant as some have been affected by carrot fly but they’re better than nothing.
I was pleasantly surprised to see this comment made yesterday on a post that I did back in August 2009.
It’s blowy, bright and mild this morning so I went for a potter round, and found that the nasturtiums are still doing well.
Have a good week!
