Here are a few snaps of my garden today. Starting with the dogs who have decided the lounger is theirs. Seem to have caught Freddie mid's a hard life!!!

The garden looked much better after my tidy up today.

The wet bit here is the patch I sowed with seeds today (see previous post). I have put chicken wire on it to deter the cats from using it as a loo.A view down the whole of the Kitchen Garden, across the strawberry bed, with the asparagus bed alongside. I hadn't the heart to uproot the poppy
which has sneaked its way in!

After dinner this evening I strung the beans, trained the sweet peas, and tied up the tomatoes in the tunnel. They too are showing signs of that spot problem I wrote about the other day. I have decided to just cut off the bad leaves and wait and see what happens.
In the tunnel I also dug out some of the strawberry plants that have finished fruiting. They are three years old now and weren't as productive as I would like. I'll replace them next year. In that bed which I went over thoroughly I have planted out my peppers, with a row of French Marigolds that had been in their cells far too long!

Did you try an all purpost fungide as I suggested before. Lots of plants here get it especially in autumn when it is wet. I thought that originally it was black spot but an all purpose fungicide works well for us, Karen, Switzerland.

I did....but it is too soon to know if it made a difference. Hopefully it won't go any further.
It was your suggestion that made me decide not to ditch them...!
