After an hour’s teaser this morning the rain arrived and thenceforth veered between heavy and torrential for the rest of the day.
This presented a good excuse to study next year’s seed catalogues. It has been decided that myself and Hero compile independent (no peeking) “You have got to be joking” lists which will then be compared and combined, culled into “perhaps” and further axed into “definitely”. Hero felt she had been particularly restrained with her 24 choices. We have a long way to go.
After watching the wonderful Michel Roux Jr waxing lyrical about strawberries on TV last night we located Cambridge Favourite in the Organic Seed Catalogue, the taste and aroma of which sent him into ecstasies. Hope all this exposure doesn’t mean they’ve sold out. On reflection sorry scrub that, I think it was called Oxford’s Best.
