You know how one of my 31 things was to grow 5 edible things, and another was to eat said edible things, well, I was looking all on course to do that – we had tomatoes, rhubarb, courgettes, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, mange tout and redcurrants on the go – all prospering well. And then, well, this happened;
thriving mange tout, redcurrants and blackberries and in-flower tomatoes,
raspberries and blueberries are under this mess of ivy and trees and bricks from the neighbours outhouse, and have been, without any
light, for a week now.
when it happens, which is massively lucky as it all fell down about 12.15 last Thursday
lunchtime and they usually are outside at that time – If it hadn’t been for the
rain they might have been underneath it. And whilst a brick to the head might not
have been the worst thing that could happen to the boy, esp. if it knocked his
love of football out of his head – but I am not sure the puppy could have
things goal. By the time insurance companies and the likes have got themselves
involved and that mess has been cleared I imagine they might not have survived & it’ll be far too late to
plant anything else. If anyone knows of any foodie plants that prosper well in
the gloomy English winter and don’t require planting in the next, well, millennium,
please let me know.
gloomy blogging will resume next week – I hope.
