Sherry!

Aah hello McFUCKKKK!!!!!! Pleased to make your... acquaintance. I went to the other, other place - the comprehensive.
I am a resting (...freelance) graphic designer. Just enjoying the summer actually, instead of being trapped in some bleedin office, doing a bit of camping, getting out of it, rejuvenating, tending to the geraniums. Got some courgette, cucumber and chillis on the go. The mystery of root crops might have to wait until next year now :) How about yerself? Do you grow?

Hello haveyougotsoup. Calm down, you merely imagined it.

What a cosy little shack this is!

I am growing, now that you mention it. Had a tiny fucking radish and lots of swiss chard, some puny lettuces, green beans, and tomatoes.

I am also resting as well, fucking love the summer and hate work, so it's going splendidly. I hope to continue into September - bad patch.

Ha Radish = kudos!
Yes I am enjoying resting immensely too, once again experiencing the life of a thespian or aristocrat, and thereby reducing myself to the state of a bum through a spiral of self destruction. Trouble is some fuckers keep giving me work. Will we never be set free? Roll on September, I agree, lol.
I have got some tomatoes doing nicely too. What with those and some raw potatoes it should help with the wintering, and hopefully wont be found dead in here next spring.

Excepting the occasional rant on facebook, I am not published. Keeping a low profile, and wearing my tin foil hat. NSA, you know.

PS: I named my wifi router "NSAspyvan". I wonder what the neighbors think?

I may change it in the future. And it's secure, so don't drive by my house thinking you can steal my bandwidth!

My radishes never came up despite my tender ministrations...the utter bastards
The tomatoes emerged from the damp soil, but I don't really care for them and they died through neglect as I mourned my radishes.

In the end I gave up on the whole venture and my veg growing box now lurks cold and deserted beneath my bed, its place in the fundament now occupied by a small selection of single malts I am perusing.

You don't get these sort of awful problems in the winter, both bars on and all is well in the world :thumbup:

I've got a crop of firm young courgettes. And they are sure to plump up nicely with the rain.

We may as well sit 'round a courgette...
... followed by yet another anecdote about his sensitive crimes in a punt with a chap called Norman, who had red hair and a book of poetry stained with the butter drips from crumpets.

I wouldn't advise being near courgettes too long, it can lead to a fever of the mind for those of a certain disposition.

Harvested a 3 inch courgette today, a tasty morsel. Not sure about the cucumber yet. Bastard must have died.

I have of late, but wherefore I know not, lost all my mirth, forgone all custom of exercises; and indeed, it goes so heavily with my disposition that this goodly frame, the earth, seems to me a sterile promontory; this most excellent canopy, the air, look you, this brave o’erhanging firmament, this majestical roof fretted with golden fire, why, it appears no other thing to me than a foul and pestilent congregation of vapors.

It has indeed been a dull and boring summer so far, drinking tea and discussing vegetables. Black dog is visiting again. :cry:
