Here's a funny photo of me from Sat night, trying my friend's Chilli Pepper cocktail. It was totally revolting! She liked it though.
And thank you for all your comments on my last post. It is heartwarming to know you read my waffle, and most are in the same boat, not quite started either!

I would like to grow peas again this year, and fine/french beans. Might give the runner beans a miss this time around as they were super-prolific! I couldn't keep up. Hmm, maybe I could try them in a simple wigwam with just three plants rather than the full row I did last year... I mean, I like runner beans, but not that many! They did surprise me though - I'd never eat them raw from the supermarket, but like a lot of things grown fresh, they were nice eaten raw when they weren't too big :)
I will not be bothering with broccoli or cauliflower again - too prone to bugs & netting is a pain in the butt! However, I will try chillies again as they did well, as well as sweetcorn I think - give it another try. BUT NO MORE TOMATOES, that is for certain! And definitely more flowers. It was so nice to pick a bunch for my table :)
I am planning on going to the allotment today after a bit of an absence. Hope things aren't too wild down there!
What are you doing at the lottie at the mo?
