All kinds of bugs

The FH is still ill, so that is one kind of bug I could do without. Sleepless nights, disturbed nights, whatever you want to call them, I've been having them! Consequently, I am Tired. With a capital T. I snatched an hour on the sofa this morning and was very glad to hear the bin men come as I wouldn't have woken up to get the YFG to school.

The cherry tomatoes have got green fly - I think. They definitely have small green creatures on them, so I have ousted them from the greenhouse before they share them around, and will have to look into ways to get rid of them. Spraying them with soapy water has been suggested, so I am looking for a spray bottle now. Apart from that, the garden is growing very well - too well, in the case of the grass - I am going to have to do some mowing and strimming this weekend. The beans I planted last week are germinating slowly, the lettuce seeds have sprouted through and the courgettes are growing their second, true leaves.

No more photos for a couple of weeks as my dad has borrowed my camera for his holiday snaps. He's off on Monday on a cruise around the northern Baltics, I think - Russia gets included, and Talinn, but I am not sure where else they will be going. They have been on this cruise before, but I am sure they will see different things this time. They brought me a Russian calendar with pictures of all the lovely palaces and their gardens in St Petersburg the last time they went.

Eggs - still being laid at an astonishing rate - I am looking for more customers!
