I'll have to apologise to my neighbours though, as the tomato plants in the close are kind of taking over the stair and are now nearly 10ft tall. I half expect them to attact me.

Since April I've been growing lots of pots of vegetables in my tenement close and on the buildings flat roof. I've never tried to grow anything before and I've found it strangely addictive. I've got pots of onions, potatoes, carrots, chillies, peppers, herbs and tomatoes. At the weekend I had a wee rumage in the dirt and dug up my first potato and was delighted by the result. As you can see from the photo above, its a beauty. I'm thinking of entering it into a "most beautiful potato" competition. My inital plan was to grow enough vegetables to make a bowl of soup but I think I might just buy a big display cabinet and show them off to friends.
This coming weekend I plan to dig up some onions so look forward to some more exciting vegetable based images next week.

An extremely bizarre little holiday village with about a few rows of houses, tons of caravans, a hotel, a golf themed pub, a lighthouse, some very poor quality amusements and a doctors surgery. Surgery opening hours - TUESDAY AND FRIDAY 11am - 11:30am
A very odd looking pub along with the amusement arcade appear to be the only source of entertainment for the multitude of tracksuit wearing, white trainer sporting young folks hanging around the corners. All in all, Southerness holiday village is quite a forlorn looking place - with grey skies and strong wind battering it's streets. I rather liked it though. There is something so poetic about forgotten holiday resorts. Think Ann and I might travel about some more and take lots of photos to record them before they all dissapear through lack of custom.
The amusement arcade was home to all the favourites, the 2p falls, the bandit style fruit machine, that whack a gator with a hammer game and of course the wonderful "place a bet now please" horse racing game. If anyone knows where I can purchase one then please let me know.
