  1. Your garden is looking good Scarecrow. Hope you get a lovely cherry crop!

    We have started using bath tubs for beds too. So far so good :)

    Stay cool in this heat :)

    1. Thanks Tania
      The Cherries are looking good so far I just hope it doesn't stay too hot for them!
      I think the tubs will be OK as long as they don't get too hot in the sun.
