 ThU32:-)  My builders did not come yesterday cos of the weather. They came today and laid the last of the slabs, because of a change of plan got to get some more slabs.
I want them to do some more slabbing in another area of garden as not happy with current surface.
Here is another Piccy.

Excuse my stupidity (or bad eyesight) Dave, but where are the raised beds? All I can see are brick walls and concrete slabs! Or am I missing something?  mad:-|

 spf:-(  Due to various things happening work come to a standstill on garden project.
1: Dad had a bad fall I had to live at his for 2 weeks to look after him.
2: 2 days before my holiday was due to start I made a cup of coffee sat down with it must have fell asleep next thing I remember waking up in agony coffee had spilled all in my lap and scalded me. Whilst in Spain it got infected and I had to go to a Spanish Hospital for treatment they gave me anti biotics and pain killers + had to go every 2 days for dressings. Ruined the holiday could not swim or walk to good.

I am still not healed yet got to go to Drs. at 1-00 oclock today

Looks like it will be next spring now before I get new raised beds going.  spf:-(  usf:-(  ss:-(

So sorry you are going through this, scalds hurt like blazes and can give you second or third degree burns if bured badly. You have to get the dressings changed regularly as they can really stink. When I scaled my hip I went to emergency where they put a burn dressing on me, they told me to come back in a week to have it changed. I had a cold at the time, after a couple of days I started to smell something off in the house, gave the fridge a good clean along with the house and I still got  wiffs of something off. Cold now on the way out I realized it was me that was stinking, rushed back to the emergency, when they took the bandage off, the smell just about knocked me over, the only good thing about this is the scald was healing nicely. They bandaged me up again, no stinky mess when I had that one removed. I really feel for you Dave not a nice thing to have to deal with.

Sorry to hear about that Dave - what a horrible thing to happen to you. It never rains but pours doesn't it? Hope you get better soon - be careful you don't get it infected, it could be really nasty. Chin up mate!

My garden is winding down for the year, hubby picked the last "Diva" cucumbers, from 6 plants we harvested over 100 cucs since the beginning of July. They started off slow but then came on gangbusters, this is our new favorite cuc, good flavor, CRISP and it looks like one you don't even have to peel.
Harvest the last dried "Bob ad Mary" bean pods, thanks Galina, it's the only one I grew for seed this year. Also picked the last of Tommo's "Wild Cherry" tomatoes, it hasn't been a good tomato year but these little zingers outdid themselves.
Health issues have curtailed my gardening activities this year but I'm gearing up to having a better year in 2018, although I won't be growing as much as I usually do. Hubby keep everything watered while I was laid up, but the weeds had a hay-day.
My wonderful son-in-law came over yesterday and cleaned up my biggest bed that has laid fallow all year. This one I'm going to tarp over throughout the winter and leave it on all of the 2018 growing season and let the sun do it's thing  :).
I will be trying a new tomato next year, originally from a gal in Russia, it made it's way to a gal in the States and she just sent me some freshly harvested seed, they arrived here on Friday  ThU32:-).  It's called "Larisa's Russian Beauty", not a biggy, grows in clusters but  the picture I saw of it looks absolutely mouth watering. I'll be sending a few seeds to Tommo to try once he gets back from his gallivanting.

I'm sorry to hear you've not been well Annette - are you better now? You take good care of yourself - you're one of the most precious members of the 'Shed'.

Doesn't shared interests shrink the world these days? Just twenty years ago and all this global swapping would have been out of the question without a lot of scribbling & air mail!

Gee, all I can say is I'm a lot better then I was, have my fingers crossed. When you go to Rob's he can fill you in on my latest battle. Watched a lot of TV this summer, it's a wonder I don't have square eyes lol(1).

Square eyes you don't need to worry about - that'll soon get fixed when you switch the box off. It's your health that's the most important. You take good care of yourself & chin up Annette! Thinking of you all the time.
