A Quiet Day in the House and Garden

After a quick visit to our local farmers’ market I was able to mow the lawn thanks to some recent rain.

All the better for a drop of rain.

The lawns have not recovered from the drought but they are looking a little better and with more rain forecast, I hope to get them in good condition soon.

A quick peer into the greenhouse revealed some progress on the tomato and pepper front after a slow start because of the very cold spring.

After all this early excitement, Mrs Tootlepedal returned from selling Bonnie Langholm raffle tickets at the farmers’ market and together we attacked a hedge to its severe detriment. I thinned a few apples on the apple tree and then had to go inside for a little sit down.
