Morning Tattianna, this weather NO good for any of us and especially us gardeners spoke with some gardening friends yesterday evening and we are all bursting with enthusiasm to get into our gardens BUT the weather is having its say !
Morning one and all, a cool 2C last night and a grey morning here. I sowed some chilli seeds last week, using seed discs to a 9cm pot. Quick and easy I look forward to seeing the results of the tea bags.
I will wrap up warm and do a few trays after Gardeners World (at 8:45 bbc2). I think it will be a few flowers today, time to rotate my seedlings out of my propagator and give some more a chance.
Morning blackest, have a good day
Morning all. Freezing here among the heather and still looks a bit like more snow although not meant to get any today. Feel very sorry for those in Cumbria- seriously unfunny weather. Igloos are about all you can grow there just now. Staying away from garden centres/nurseries just now- unless the kids would like to live on bread and water for rest of year Good to see you back Brum. Blackest - 2 degrees sounds positively balmy, would you like our easterly wind?Please...
Morning fairygirl .................. yes brrr brrrrrr been snowing all night here !
No thanks dont want any wind as well !
I did hear that the GAS levels are really low? ! due to a increase in usage this spring, obviously due to the cold conditions we've had
My CH boiler was making an alarmingly strange vibrating noise last night, so I went on the net to investigate reasons. One of them was a low gas supply. I ran the hot tap for a couple of minutes and it stopped - thank goodness, since I was alone in the house (OH working nights despite his advanced age) and a bit scared. I'm no wiser about the reason, but I wondered if the gas supply was under serious strain because of the intense cold.
Morning Verdun, better conditions than us in the Mids, have a nice day
GG ...... dont quote me on this but i did hear on sky news that the current gas supply is very low !? im not saying this is why your boiler made strange noise though - im NO gas expert ! is your boiler covered by a annual service etc ?
Just been serviced, Brumbull. It isn't making the noise today, but if it does, I'll get them back, don't worry. Thanks for your concern.
Okay GG, dont want you and OH having NO heating bet the gas engineers have had there work cut out thought the last couple of months ?
morning all. 4 hours of garden showson shopping channelsthis morning- the temptation is so much.
Really sorry for everyone with bad weather. It is cold andgrey here but that is all.
I've got to take my kitty to be chipped but that is all I have planned apart from watching tv and reading gardening mags and books.
Have a good day everyone
Morning Bev, i have been buying this morning i blame the weather, cannot really do much outside make me buy more inside ! still time to catch up on reading and learning, have a nice day
GC visit is off! The wind may have dropped (slightly) but the cold is penetrating...
re-reading GW mag.. big plans for the first sign of a bright sky..
cilmeri not worth getting a nasty chill, there will be other days i hope ?! damm weather !
Happy Daffodil Day
The local big house opens onc e a year fro its amazing daffodil display and spring gardens.
Last year it was cancelled and it is today so ........
No plans, may go plant searching for something I've seen in a catalogue but can't remember which one - good excuse to go through the lot
Potted on half the lavenders that I have been growing through the winter yesterday - then ran out of grit and labels. Will finish the rest off today. Got a few more sets of seeds to sow for the window sills as well.
Snow has mostly thawed here, but still no good for gardening outside. Have just put on the first load of washing (that will be first of seven ! - only put the washing machine on once a week) and will spend the rest of the day working through the rest.
We DID run out of gas ! But thats only because we are on tank gas, and we had forgotten to check the level. Our old company used to come and top us up automatically when we were down to a quarter full - but we changed supplier - BAD move! So, with impeccable timing, it ran out yesterday morning. No deliveries til the end of this week. So keeping the wood burners topped up, and wearing lots of jumpers when we venture out of the living rooms.
Should have started the last missive off with "Morning Everyone" - the weather must be getting to my manners !
Goodmorning all. Sun's shinning, temperature rising and thinking of getting the BBQ out and my nose grows longer every second.
Does anyone else think that this talk of gas shortage, which I don't disbelieve, is the start of hiking up the price, yet again. I am a total ignoramous about these things, but can't they ask those that have it to give us a bit more, or is it not that simple.
Morning chicky, Morning Tina
