We have caught and put out two large 'carpet runner' spiders and 4 small bodied little leg torpedo style spiders. Guess we can 'look' forward to those now for a few months. I hate them.
Having wrapped my tomato plants up the other night against a predicted cold night, it didn't arrive so today I unwrapped them and harvested a couple of bowlfuls. A big bowlful of runner beans was also harvested although about 1/4 of them were no good, too stringy.
We drove to Norwich the other day for me to have a good look around a large hobbycraft store. Interesting even though there wasn't too much for me, I still managed to get things that were needed in the next few months. Amazing place.
I have put in a final small order to Amazon and an even smaller one to The Works for my final few things. Other things for future use, have gone/will be going on, my Christmas wish list
Last night after OH had gone to bed I saw a huge black shadow galloping along the edge of the carpet. I quickly put my legs up onto the sofa and carried on reading. It is probably lurking somewhere behind the furniture.ReplyDelete
Can’t rest easy until they’re caught. We have a card and a large glass in each room to catch them.Delete
My runners are pretty much over now. No new flowers and only a few still to pick. As you say, they get 'stringy' towards the end of the season.ReplyDelete
Good news about the tomatoes - that's a good picking!
Still have more to pick but think the beans are just about over.Delete
We have a couple of wolf spiders that hang around our front window. They are very interesting to watch. I wouldn't want them in the house though, they are huge.ReplyDelete
Neither would I having read up on them.Delete
I too was impressed by the Hobbycraft store when I visited my daughter in Norwich, I came back with loads of things I didn't know I needed.ReplyDelete
I had to reign myself in a bit so it was lucky they didn't have too much that I wanted.Delete
I don't mind the normal house spiders, as long as they keep to themselves. But I did object to one lowering himself down from the ceiling, above my head, while I was reading in bed. He was transplanted somewhere else! I'm looking forward to the Creative Craft Show at the end of the month, just outside of Exeter. I need to do a 'shopping list' soon :)ReplyDelete
Ah, craft shows, do you think you will stick to a shopping list?Delete
