Spent all day Saturday working - Very hard - in the garden!!!!!

On the plus side:

I have a garden that is way too neat to be mine!!!!  :)

I have edges to die for!!!  :)

I have repotted - tended and loved and spoiled plants  :)

Oh yes - I have a great colour on my back!!   :)

On the negitive side:

I have cuts bruises and blisters on my hands ! :(

I have beautiful purple/greenish bruises on my legs  :(

My back is in the horrors :(

But I was wide awake at 5am. Bing and sat out on the deck with my dog drinking coffee and discussing with her what a bloody great job I did !!!

Good for you.   What a magnificent day.  Too hot.  Had plenty of intentions to do,  but only managed a couple.  Six cucumbers put to bed in the glasshouse in their organic growbags. More Chiilli Peppers potted up to their final positions. Hope they cope with the heat ok. It went up to 42 degrees C at the hot end,  and all doors and vents were open to max.  Recon I lost a half a stone myself while I was in there.  Got sence then and lit the BBQ and had a few beers.

The heat was unreal today was potting on tomatoes and going into the tunnel with them I had rivers of sweat running down my face. Great when you get so much done and the downside has to be endured.
