I had a burst of energy after work tonight so I started ripping up my old kitchen floor. It's in pretty bad shape so the ceramic tiles come up easily enough. Getting the screws out of the cement board is tougher but mostly time-consuming and dirty. I can see why my contractor quoted much higher for them to do the removal. It doesn't take any skill so there's no reason for me not to do it myself. They get to put in the bamboo flooring though.
My tomatoes have already been zapped by the cold nights. So much for the polytunnel extending my season! I've got green tomatoes to use up now...thinking of trying chutney.
