Which to learn first?

Hello everyone, it's the weekend again already so for me and Tess that means flyball again at 9:30 tomorrow. I wouldn't say that I'm excited about it but I do feel a little more enthusiastic than last week. It's not that I don't like the flyball or the people or doing something with Tess but sometimes when she does something she shouldn't around the home I get to thinking that maybe I should be concentrating on her obedience and manners before learning fun and games. I guess I need to try and find the time to teach her both. Anyway we are continuing to have short sessions with the plant pot in the garden, I will make a video some time and post it on here so you can see the homework we have been set.

This morning I picked a load of fruit and veg for the dowager house. There is no sign of the family coming to visit this summer so far so I am taking what I can to the dowager house rather than see it go to waste and they seem to appreciate it so that's worth the hard work it took to grow it.

Below are Potatoes, Beetroot, French Beans, Broad Beans, Courgettes, Aubergines, Figs, Grapes, Tomatoes and Apricots so that should see them over the weekend nicely.
This afternoon me and the head gardener have been transplanting in to six packs the winter pansies, we have put then on the trolley outside the potting shed as there is no need for them to be indoors. I still have a few more to do but I ran out of time and compost so they will have to wait until Monday. I think the head gardener looks quite pleased with progress.
Well I hope you have a good weekend, apart from Flyball I'm not really expecting to be doing very much as Vicki has to work all weekend.

What a beautiful variety of fresh foods.

I'm sure they'll be glad to see you, bringing those treasures.

Nice harvest Rob and Tommy. I wish I had room to store my winter pasies but the greenhouse here gets taken up with palms and orchids
