I'm only happy when it rains

Not!!! But I'll go mad if I think this flipping drizzle will never stop. This is a track from Garbage, I was in hospital with Shirley's Mum when I had my surgery. She was a very nice woman, very stylish, like Jean Muir. Anyway Shirley is one of our best exports.

I've found the perfect job for me on Constant Gardener. In America they are hiring garden coaches, you don't need to dig, you just give newbies advice on what to do and what to plant. See here. Any takers lol!

She'd sure be happy here today.
There was I thinking garden coaches were the ones that took you to the Eden Project and the like!

The rain seems to have been a feature of life in Britain this past week. However I saw a glimpse of British sun today (mid-evening my time, mid-morning yours) on my friend C's web-cam - she lives in Lichfield. Hope some of that sun got to you too!

Do you remember Goodbye Mr. Mackenzie the band she was in before Garbage. I liked them... I've got it on vinyl, but no longer have a record player. Grr. Will have to sort that out one day.

The fire brigade were very busy where I am - second day of torrential rain in a row, the drains couldn't cope etc.

I haven't watered my garden in over a month. Raspberries are going pink despite the lack of sun but they have no taste, or taste moldy, yuk! Apart from it meaning I can watch frog hopping around all over they place, I too am heartily sick of this shitty weather!

So, dear garden expert, should I bring my poor tomatoes into the house or are they buggered already?

As long as they're not covered in sooty mould and the roots haven't rotted you could bring them in. Although it's not cold, so provided they can drain away they might be OK. EG if in pots or the soil, grow bags get waterlogged, unless you make holes along the sides and bottom.

I'm watering, ha ha, my friend's garden and hers are still flowering fine, although they look a wee bit yellow, which means they need a dose of magnesium/epsom salts. It's probably due to roots being a bit water-logged, or the nutrients being washed out by excessive rain.

I hope you are not affected by the floodng f:lux!

Thanks for the advice, but I'm in such despair with this unseasonal dank gloom, comfort food by the fireside weather...

Yes I made Thai soup for dinner, chillies and lemon grass, the flavours lifted my spirits
