A mini update

OK, so it's tedious but I have had 2 trips down to St G today. The first was in the loan car this morning to collect the part from the breakers and drop it off at the garage. The second was early evening to collect the car. I think we were both quite stunned to see the old brake pads, which had cracked due to the heat when the caliper had seized on. Thank goodness we had been so close to the garage when the problem had occurred. The final bill for the replacement pads and for fitting the new caliper was way below what we had been expecting. Exceptional service at an exceptional price!

So, between the two St G trips, I was out in the potager, weeding and sowing more beetroot, coriander and lettuce. The shallots will be harvested this weekend before the voles attack them as they attacked and destroyed the garlic. In their place I will be sowing some autumn/winter crops or possibly more carrots or lettuce. The second crop of F1 carrots are reaching edible size as are the leeks, the cherry tomatoes are flowering well as are the French beans, the courgettes, the kuri squash and the second sowing of peas, the chilli peppers and capsicum are on the point of flowering .... so generally it is looking good :-D
