I was so pleased to see this fellow fast asleep at the back our our garden, it's cooler down by my shed a perfect spot to sleep. He is gone today, but I love to see hedgehogs in the garden.
I dug out the gooseberry pot, and put the kiwi plant in it's place, adding some height to this area. I don't expect to grow kiwi's to a stage where they will ripen for eating. I just hope I can get blossom, which is beautiful.
I kept the green gooseberry, it's been cut right back and will stay in this bag in my trolley until the tomatoes are over, so I can use the big black pot. It's the pot my Olive tree came in, so it's strong and huge, I have not yet decided the final place for this plant.
I am getting harvest every other day, the blackberries are just starting, my early blueberries are almost finished and the lates are just starting. I am picking tomatoes and cucumbers, but I don't think the cucumber plant will give me many more, the leaves are going yellow.
I popped to the library on Wednesday, got 3 books, this one was always going to be my 1st read, I loved behind her eyes. Another really good read, I enjoyed every page, the story line was different and interesting.
We have been stocking our cupboards and freezer again, we have visitors this Sunday and next Saturday, so many shops have special prices it a good time to shop.
I have ordered 10 copper rings for my garden, these should stop slugs and snails from eating my tender small plants, I have lost so many plants this summer. Our hedgehog was back in the garden last night, he leaves his calling card on the lawn.
Purdy went to the vets this week after fighting in our garden, she had cut her ear, it was deep and we were concerned, she went back last night and is on the mend. Sadly the huge cat was again in our garden and Purdy was protecting her area, this time she was unhurt. We are looking at ways to stop the cat coming into our back garden, our new neighbour is away, so her 3 dogs are not at home, I am hoping once they are back, they might keep cats away from our garden.
