Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
We're glad your mum weathered (!) the stormlet, gnu. We only had four inches of rain and a lot of gusty wind here. All of the Meyers lemons and most of the lemon flowers stayed attached though. The snail population is the highest we've seen in 16 years or so...our little bantams have tried hard to gobble them all up.
Some of our robin families are raising their third, possibly fourth broods of the season. I've planted four varieties of tatties/spuds/potatoes layered in half whiskey/whisky barrels due to the high rainfall this spring, and the blight-resistant Yukon Gems will at last go into the larger veg garden hoping most of the heavy rain is behind us.
So sorry to be more absent than active on duty here, folks. Life is challenging- has been for some time. I am always interested in what's going on with all of you but find it hard to post even when I'm home.
As gnu often says, Thoughts and Prayers are ongoing for all.
