Andy returned to a standing ovation at Queens yesterday and it was just lovely to see him play again. Yes he was a bit rusty at times, other times, brilliant shot making. I think he could have actually won the match in two sets but missed a few shots he would normally get. Nick prevailed in the end but I think went ‘absent’ a few times. He seemed to feel the pressure and couldn’t relax, knowing he was playing his friend, who was returning from long term injury.
The weather today is blustery to say the least. However it is set dry and due to get more and more hot and humid from the weekend on. I really must water the front garden as some plants are starting to flag.
I’ve done the final potting on of my two chilli plants and started a strawberry garden in bed 3. I have decided to keep one bed as veg and give the rest over to fruit. The bed down the drive, currently growing tomatillos, will remain and used in future for tomatoes and beans.
