Cor, get a look at my melons!
They’re Melon ‘Emir’ and I’m so looking forward to them ripening. I really hope I get to bring at least one home with me! This is the second year I’ve grown them and they’re no more difficult than cucumbers. I’m limiting each plant to 2 and it looks like I may have got over enthusiastic with the thinning – hence having an odd number of fruit. Oops.
My long-reach hedgtrimmer is poorly. When I try to start it the poor wee beastie just goes chugga-chugga-huff. I’ve cleaned the spark plug and changed the air filter (which was surprisingly grubby) and have thus reached the limits of my mechanical knowledge. It’ll have to go off to someone who knows about these things while I wait anxiously for it’s return so that I can do the tops of the hedges.
