Nice idea TB. Hope youโ€™re doing well and looking forward to the World Cup.

Club wise, how do you think Leicester will fare next season?
Thanks for the good wishes.
Rugby, well where to begin, England won't be ready to do very well in the World Cup, Borthwick and his team just might sort things out for the next WC if the RFU don't interfere, which I think they will.
Tigers, well a new coaching team, some new players and I really don't know how it will go, hoping for top 4 in the league and a go at the final at Twickenham for the pay offs(that's not a spelling mistake).
They, a bit like England, are not ready to challenge in the big boys cup, I don't expect much in Europe this coming year. We have a heap of really good lads coming through from the academy, guys like Martin the two Chessum brothers, Illione have the potential to go a very long way in the game, those who figured in the England U20's should also step up, The Manz brothers, Finn Carnduff, all names you might hear of in the future, we are finally using the product we make ourselves instead of trying to buy a team, which did not work.

Thanks TB. Most pleasing is that your sense of humour is still intact. Thumbs Up

Thanks all, nice to know there's still a welcome in the valleys.
Now for a confession, during lockdown my daughter treated me to a shot on the Ancestry thing, well I did my family tree and as well as the English/Saxon/Norman stuff I knew about I've Welsh ancestors, it might take a while to get over the shock lol.

At that stage of the year when we are giving friends/neighbours veg boxes. Lots of produce ready. Had a roast dinner yesterday which featured broccoli, runner beans, carrots, sugar snap peas & 2nd early potatoes all picked in the morning. We are also picking onions, garlic, beetroot, courgettes, spring onions, lettuce, baby leeks, cucumbers, tomatoes with some lovely looking cauliflowers ready this week. 

Some much needed warmth forecast for the middle of this week so our sweet peppers should get a boost. Ymlaen!!!!

Weathers picking up again, stuff in the greenhouse going really well, looks like it's tomatoes, Sweetcorn and Chillies with every meal for the next two months lol
Outside the greenhouse has not been so good, carrots and Parsnips a disaster, can't win 'em all I guess, bit like rugby at times.

It always amazes us how things change due to location in the growing fraternity. We have experience growing veg in Kent at sea level and here in middish Wales at 650 feet & its a total different World. Having said that this season has been our best ever. Carrots and parsnips doing well & our Swede are huge with still 6-8 weeks to go before harvest. Had some lovely sweetcorn yesterday for lunch, tomatoes now ripening well. Sweet peppers are slower but will perk up now that we are getting some warmth returning.

I live a mile from the sea and only 80 feet above it, very light sandy soil hence I use raised beds for most of my growing, no dig is a boon too as I get older. Funny old season this year, I'm watching the forecasts as we can get an early frost in September.

I'm with you on the raised beds. Being an enthusiastic gardener I have found that I have become quite manic about weather forecasts. Confused

You just cannot trust the weather or even forecasts. 
I have invested a lot of money,  time and effort,in our hanging  baskets. I water and feed religiously. 
I have learned NOT to listen to the predicted rain for the following  day, unless it obviously  going to be very bad.
As a consequence,  the baskets are doing really well.
I even take them down and place on buckets in the garage ,when it's obviously  going to exceptionally  windy, or torrential rain.

Today BBC weather  predicted the best day of the week.
We went to Tenby,but by the time we got there, it was overcast,and exceptionally  windy. Our proposed boat trip was postponed  for another day, and those who risked it , wished they hadn't. 

Since June the weather has been consistently  unpredictable,  and generally  poor
Sorry for the kids,  who are are back in school, in a couple  of weeks
