Lifting Onions

I have spent quite a bit of time in the greenhouses this morning doing the usual watering and dead heading plus I did a spray round for whitefly. I also removed any Tomato and Cucumber plants that were no longer productive‎. I then took a few cuttings of Geraniums and Fuchsias and potted on some cuttings already rooted. After tea break I lifted and set out to dry all the Onions.

Lewis on pole.

I've been watching the qualifying for the Italian Grand Prix from Monza and I'm pleased to report that Lewis Hamilton has qualified on pole for tomorrow's race. It has also been reported that Jenson Button is set to retire from driving a F1 car at the end of this season.

Repair work.

I've done a bit of repair work to the greenhouse this morning. A few panes of glass had slipped so I pushed them back into place and secured them the best I can. One of the glazing bars has rotted so really needs replacing, I will have to mention it to the boss.

Hedge cutting tools.

For hedge cutting duties I use a Stihl HS82RC and for lighter trimming work I use a Bosch AHS 35-15 LI which is a rechargeable machine, a nice light manoeuvrable little trimmer.

I've just been picking a few Mulberries for the hall. I don't find them to be the best fruit picking experience on account of them hiding within the foliage of the tree and also they are terribly messy.
