It looks like Summer is coming to an end with a final flourish, this weekend there are rumors the sun will make an appearance and most of us should be treated to perfect BBQ weather. Tip of the week, stock up on charcoal as there's going to be a rush for it on Saturday.

Last week the 'Melplash Show' was very entertaining. With many great vegetable entries in the Horticulture tent. I'm a little worried now, and I'm pinning all my hopes on the Longest Bean competition for the Dorchester Show. I would tell you how long it is but that would give the others an unfair advantage.

This weekends main job, as well as getting the charcoal, is to finish off the sowing of my over wintering brassicas. I just need to build a frame to cover the whole area with netting to stop the pigeons from getting fat on my tender seedlings.

Thanks to everyone who has spotted the deliberate mistake with the 'Fruiting plants to sow' in the moon planting section. We are working on the solution as you read this, and should have it fixed for next week.
