Loadsa Squash!

Well after taking over my veg patch for most of the summer with their huge leaves and long winding stalks, this is my entire harvest (apart from 2 that are soup and curry in the freezer). This is actually better than last year when the horrible wet weather all summer meant that the flowers rotted and dropped off before they even made a measly attempt at forming squash. The late sun helped this year - they seemed to triple in size in the last month and I've brought them in before the hard frosts.
Runner beans have also done well this year - pity that I seem to be the only one who eats them!

Lighting a candle

Tonight was the night to remember all of us who have suffered Babyloss . My candle was lit and I remembered my lovely friends Jeanette and Cheryl as they remember their beautiful baby girls who didn't stay more than a day, but are in their hearts forever.

Just after I blew it out I checked my email and discovered an old friend had died this evening of liver cancer - so I dedicate it to John too xxx
