On allotment early this morning, cleaning ground for courgettes and late sowings of carrots, turnips and swede. THE best time to be out and about today. A cool breeze to begin with that had dropped by 8 am when I headed back.

Worked this morning and early afternoon before driving to Plough at Kelmscott. Love that pub and village--an exquisite middle-of-nowhere Thames valley place (with Wm Morris, Burden, Rossetti associations--wild).

Then home for late lunch in garden. (Pics above may not have displayed in order--the perils of posting from phone.)

Coolest place here is the shed. Amongst other things, the potato store. This year we've had home-grown spuds for 365 days. I collected the last of the 2009 harvest this morning from their hessian sack and tomorrow we'll lift the first of the 2010.

Steak supper later. Will maybe listen to Florence + the Machine after. Facebook friend posted about seeing F + t M and Stranglers at Glastonbury today. Envy!

  1. Lovely garden Frank! Last time we were out at Kelmscott the Plough was still being renovated, but I'm very tempted to go back after reading your recommendation.
