Colin sowed a whole bed of beetroot before he died in the hope we would have enough to store some for winter, what he didn't know was that we were going to have a drought and there is no way I can water the beetroot as well as the greenhouse crops and the beans - not forgetting all the patio pots.
Last weekend I pulled a few to cook and these were the biggest I could find!
I'm still resting the blinkin' back, although it seems to be getting worse rather than better. I'm alternating ice packs and hot water bottles plus pain killers. What a good thing I keep well stocked with food and milk in the freezer and cat food in the cupboard as I would have been worried about not being able to get out for shopping.
Since Tuesday I've read two books, watched tennis and football and looked at blogs I've never seen before but I'd rather be busy. I may have to resort to the doctor.
