It's been a strange sort of day today - one minute blazing sunshine, howling gales, an ominous black sky and stampeding rain the next. I was so glad that I'd invested a tenner's worth into Rhino tape from Coed-y and hunkered the poly tunnels down as much as I could the other day. Amazingly enough they are still holding together (only just) and my plants have survived (so far). But we've been lucky - not so good in West Sussex and all along the west coast, right across up to Cumbria,

This was one little patch, earlier on in the year - a bit of a mish mash of all sorts.
My friend brought me two baby holly hock plants last spring. They were gorgeous and have produced loads of seeds. I've planted a sea of little seedlings from them. Hope they survive the winter. Looking quite good up to now.

Still got a few runner beans hanging on. Hope there's enough to make a meal tomorrow.
