Have you got shares in a Bamboo farm by any chance  :glasses9:  :angel11:

I haven't been to my allotment since Friday but managed to nip in on my way home from visiting family, sadly many of my veg in the greenhouses have been cooked much sooner than should have been. Gave them a quick watering and will survey the damage tomorrow. :sad1:

Not just me then - been fighting all spring with stuff either cold and sulking or being suddenly fried by a blazing hot day that was not forecast so shades not down. Gave up on some things and just sowed direct and hoping for the best.

Nice one Johnny, you'll be able to divide it soon and, possibly, treble your investment!

I cannot believe the pictures with green grass on the paths.  Do you water it?  Everything is colouring up here, everything is turning brown.   The grass turned brown sometime ago.
