this photo won 1st in the amatuer photo at a local horticultural show
this one was second in the novice. I was really pleased and there was prize money too!! I've put it towards new re-chargable batteries for my camera.
and this is copy of my 'blue ticks', which means passes, for the Quantum Savvy Level 1 which I am working on with Smokey, whoohoo! just two to go, but I will need to borrow a horse trailer for no.3, and that might take a while! this is me and Smokey, its a bit blurry as its taken from the wee movie I sent for Assignment 6. he's a good boy!! thankyou Smokeys mum!!

from the top the usual 'catface' of the Purple Calabash tomato
underneath its a sort of tomato mutant!!

I'll give it another couple of days to ripen up on the window sill and then see how it tastes, probably great!

poppy volunteer

in amongst the leeks! one of the joys of not being a great weeder is having lovely things like this appear.
the weather can only be described as 'continuing dreich', I cannot even cut the grass and am having to pay somebody to cut it regularly, and I like cutting grass and can't really afford the extra expenditure, thats how bad it is!!
