Back from holiday

No, I haven’t been away on holiday for the whole time since my last post. I’ve been busy with various things, including sanding and varnishing the sitting-room floor (it looks much nicer now, stained a deep brown and covered with scattered animal skins). But Robin and I did take a weekend trip to Venice a couple of weeks ago and now there are photos available. There are a few I’m particularly proud of.

Today I have sown parsnips, carrots, Brussels sprouts and purple broccoli (last year’s broccoli hasn’t started producing yet, and I harvested the last Brussels sprouts today, so there’s a bit of a gap in cropping at the moment; it should be ready in the next week or so though), and the five types of tomato.
