Lovely jubbley

Heavy rain early morning has thoroughly watered the dust dry garden. Later on, I should be able to apply the nematodes, which are currently stored in the fridge. I have decided to use half and then the other half in three weeks (its use by date). It’s supposed to be applied again in 6 weeks but that will have to do.

Normally we don’t use them but there were a few in the compost bins when we emptied them, no doubt eggs present as well.

Dog training for Ruby today. I am so stressed at the moment with her, that I might well have to hand her over to DB and go out to calm down! Tough if the trainer doesn’t like that.

Being so windy lately, like children, she has been over excited at the slightest thing. Stopped training yesterday shortly after arriving at the cricket pitch, as she wasn’t co-operating at all. DB walked her home whilst I took the car back.

Got another sowing of beetroot, carros, radish, lettuce and beans done yesterday. I also sowed some nasturtiums for salad use.

DB managed to fix the fruit cage door which had dropped and was scraping on the floor. All in all, a good days pottering, working whilst young miss was asleep!

Have a great weekend everyone.

  1. I'm sorry to read you're having so much stress with Ruby, I feel for you. All I can say is that it does get better with time, we know from experience. We went through a time when we thought Betty would never calm down. Now, about a year later, she's still excitable but much more obedient.

    1. Thanks Sooze. I am sure things will get better, luckily, DB is a calmer person than me!

  2. She's still very young - think toddler type stuff. I'm sure you're doing all the right things.

    1. A toddler with teeth is how we view her at present!

  3. Hoping Ruby settles down so that you're less stressed. I have shingles again, unsurprising due to a dreadful last 6 weeks. Much love xx

    1. Oh dear, hope they don’t hang around for too long, so uncomfortable. Chicken pox has got a lot to answer for.
