Sturminster Marshall and East Dorset - September 2022

A great week based at Sturminster Marshall , East Dorset where I managed to rent a bijou two bedroom cottage and invited my pal Ernie along. I did three varied bike rides and also joined Ernie on his Stour Valley journey and a coastal walk.It's a fabulous place for off road cycling with so many bridleways and tracks to explore.

Clun YHA September 2022

 A brief trip to Clun YHA near the Shrophire/Powys border where my friend Andrew was volunteer warden for the week. I rode on one day and walked with pals on the other.

Early August on the plot

Some photos of the plot taken in this morning's rain. We've had wet and dry weather on and off during the spring and summer, and since the mini heatwave copious amounts of rain with the IPC tanks and water butts now full to overflowing.


I've removed some of the fruits to ripen at home to avoid the trusses breaking under their weight





PSB plantlets transferred from seedbed to replace potatoes lifted a few days before.

I'm having to hack back the squash plants to give other things a chance.

Quick overnight stay at Gameshope Bothy

A quick sortie into the Southern Uplands. I'd planned to stay another night here at Gameshope or move to Brattleburn further west but the rain set in for the rest of the day.
