Re: Sizzling Summer Bits and Bobs.

A number of showers last night and it has poured down all day today. Temp in tunnel was only 15c at mid-day. I have been glad, this year, that when I built the tunnel, about fifteen years ago, I decided to put the green debris netting all round the lower three feet.

Good luck.

Re: Label your strawberries!

I rub a wet finger over the plastic label then use a HB pencil. This seems to work best and can be rubbed out with a soft rubber and reused.

Re: House Insurance.

I'm very old fashioned. I've used the same insurance broker for the last twenty years. It may be a little bit more expensive BUT.... A few years ago we had a bad leak in the loft, which brought a bedroom ceiling down, the day before we were going abroad on holiday. I contacted my broker and arranged...
