I've potted on my courgettes already, having only planted the seeds a week ago. They grew amazingly quickly and soon hit the top of the propagator. The green peppers planted at the same time are just beginning to come up. A politician came canvassing at the door yesterday, and we got talking about gardening because they are doing a big thing on recycling. Then he said they had a big shot politician coming up today and needed somewhere to take pictures of him with compost. Well, we've got plenty of compost, so my garden got invaded at one o'clock by a bunch of journalists, photographers and politicians and their acolytes. The big shot got his picture taken shovelling my compost. My compost will be in the paper tomorrow *sighs* famous compost at last!
