( Results... )This is a definite, if not unexpected, worsening over previous results, due in no small part to our housing situation.
I'm seeing Dr Roberts (GP) tomorrow so I'll discuss these results with her then.

Lovely couple of hours in the greenhouse today. Sowed various heritage tomatoes, some marrows, marigolds (French - apparently they're a good companion plant for a lot of veg), celery, celeriac, sweet peas, and goodness knows what else. I also gave in to temptation and bought a pack of 50 labels with a pencil. Up until now I've been cutting up milk containers but the writing doesn't always show up on them, whereas on pristine white, it's quite clear. It made me feel really organised - which I'm really not.
I repotted the thyme we bought a few weeks ago, and between us, we managed to repot the Christmas tree. There was no way to save the pot, unfortunately, as the roots had grown through the drainage holes. The tree now has a mixture of soil and compost in its pot: I hope it won't take that as encouragement to put on a growth spurt!
The garden is still undug but I think I may get at least some of it done before the weekend.
Having a gun attachment on the end of the hose instead of the adjustable nozzle is a huge improvement. If we can persuade the landlord to allow us to have an outside tap instead of having to use the kitchen sink, I'd be made. The trouble with mixer taps is that there's just nothing to attach a hosepipe to sensibly, which frequently leads to water spraying everywhere and very short tempers. Not ideal.
Just the sweetcorn, beetroor and the legumes to go now, and probably a few more bits of salad and some more flowers. Having the potatoes in tubs on the patio frees up a huge amount of garden for other crops, and having the greenhouse means I can grow much less hardy plants than otherwise. Watch this space for offers of surplus plants!
