Oh, what terrible time wasters these are! And they're starting to arrive already. I dreamed about tomatoes last night, because I was browsing the Thomson and Morgan catalogue in bed. And how they suck you in - during the summer, Dan and I agreed that we woudl be more selective in the species we grew and reduce the number of varieties. We agreed two varieties of potatoes - Red Duke of York and Desiree. Then the catalogues arrive and tempt you with the tastiest, highest yielding, disease resistant varieties, and it's awful hard to resist!

I did grow a variety called "Cara" this year and we had two baked last night. It was a delicious potato, so "Cara"'s back on the list again.

It's a nice day, so I'm going to get out in the garden. Dan's already been out and pruned the cherry and plum trees - and it's only just after 9am. He has a list - if he finishes it, he can watch the football this afternoon. If he's been really good, he can have a beer, too.
