The Flu pays an unwelcome visit.

I called to the local doctor this evening to get something to control the flu.Though good weather,the in and out of tunnels and greenhouses cant defeat Mother Nature.

All was not lost.This evening i dug up the late planting of potatoes in some polypots.Just small black bags designed for the job.A total of 12 bags.

The type i grew were late first earlies (Pentland Jav) in the coldframe.Earlier brassicas (cabbage etc) were started there.Then when empty,prepared for a quick planting of potatoes.Quite happy i was with the turnout.At least the flu cant win there.

Hope you soon feel better John.  Good lot of potatoes.

Sorry you have the flu John, but hope you are soon better. Always miserable to get it when there is so much to do but maybe you need a couple of days rest! Good results with the potatoes.

Surprised John, that you had the 'flu and were able to get things like that done. The 'flu can be serious and you want to mind yourself.

Lovely, John. Pass the butter please.

Hope you are on the mend very soon.
