Jon Freeman De-clutter & Fitness in a Pandemic: 2021 (1201* d) RE: De-clutter & Fitness in a Pandemic: 2021 09 Jun 21

My gardening hasnít gone as well as Iíd hoped. I hadnít realised but the Swiss chard plug plants I bought were meant to be potted on before being planted out. What Iíve got doesnít look very well but there are new green leaves starting on some plants so there is still hope. A couple of hanging basket tomatoes look ok but my other few outside ones are struggling. I think Iíll blame the May weather and having to make a decision with plants getting straggly indoors more than me for that. Iíve lost a row of French climbing beans and I donít know why. Some replacements are on order.

Iím very annoyed with Suttons and my clubroot resistant brassica collection. The plants, which I potted on yesterday and may yet pick up, arrived in poor condition. Not only that, they couldnít be bothered labelling which plants are which. Iím not planting (and donít have space for) all 22 here but had hoped to sort out my own subset and give the others away. I canít tell which are cabbage, callabrese, sprouts or cauliflower.

On a brighter note, greenhouse stuff, potatoes, leeks, lettuce, courgettes are looking fine.

Iíve got a fly screen for the patio door coming today (dad wants the door open in this warm spell and mum is getting bothered about possibilities of bugs and birds getting inÖ) so, depending on when it comes, I might try to fit that later. Iím not sure what that will involve but Iím reluctant to drill and screw into the UPVC frame. Perhaps Iíll see a better way with a bracket, perhaps notÖ One thing there is that is by any remote chance I could picture a simple (it would need to be simple..) bracket to help, I could possibly draw it and print it.

Weíre having more visitors this week, I think just for an afternoon and the only thing Iíve been asked to do for it is to make a chocolate sponge cake. Even though we have all had our second jabs here, Iím not sure Iím comfortable with people calling from away yet. There again, we donít see many people and it will probably be nice for my parents. I think theyíve known one another since the 1950s, starting with dad and Ray both being stationed at RAF Pembrey for National Service.
