Leek seedlings up finally...could be too late by the time they are ready to plant out though!
i am def feet and inches and I'm 36 so should really know better
Morning all. Up a bit early today so I'm sure I'll have a snooze soon.Looks like it is going to be a gray day here
blackest- you need to rein in the spending on plants-that's the problem. I've never had trouble doing that of course.....
Morning all. Up late as out last night. My daffodils are well over and tulips are almost over, but hard to plant anything yet as leaves all over the place. But I often plant dahlias between daffodils and they usually survive the winter in the ground. I plant snowdrops all around the hostas then the hosta leaves hide the dying snowdrop leaves.
Good morning, Ali Newbie; I don't see why it should be too late for the leeks - mine are being hardened off outside the greenhouse; but I was still pulling up last years leeks this March. Chilly outside, time to do paper/work
Here the GC sells leeks for planting out in June.
Morning anyone that's still here! Didn't wake until 10.15 and that's only because son knocked on my door. Am wondering whether he was a bit worried. Anyway, just watched a bit of 'The One Show', as, thanks to Matty, I could see what I had witnessed from my garden yesterday evening. Not even had brekkie yet.
Was pleased to see everything still standing this morning.
Bev, are you a Lazy Mary like me or still under the weather? Like to think it's the former.
Do have a good day. Sunny and bright this morning but still a bit windy. Hope it stays like this for my trot up to have my pedicure.
Woke up this morning feeling like 'me' YAY
OH still wants me to be careful though. Walk round garden found my clematis alpina 'Pamela Jackman' was blown down. Tied it up, It is the first year of flowering and is covered in them so could have been the weight. Will know for next year it needs extra tying.
(bought it at the show last year)
Chilly out there and still a bit of wind swirling around. Am now a week behind with my prioritsed plans
AND downstairs loo has finally been completed
Sounding good Matty.
In for a cup of tea. Glad you're feeling better Matty.
And loo- result!!
Tina- hope your hooves will look dapper...
Looking out the window, FG, they are going to get very wet.
Looking a bit dubious here tooTina. Got some sweet peas in their pot after moving the rescued primulas out of it and into other ones. I feel as if that's all I do just now. Got my tomatoes into their final home so they're looking good. Trying to get the enthusiasm to do posts and dig more holes but just phoned council and I'm not very pleased with them so I just feel fed up.
Put some nice wellies on Tina
Going to have lunch and try to feel more positive
Eating a Cornish pasty ...luverly. I'm on a health kick......After I've eaten a couple of caramel bars, for the energy!
Sunny right now so will get some quick pruning done
Tina had my pedicure this morning. Lol
Wot no cake Verd....?
Really hacked off now as I meant to go and get milk but phoned council first...will have to wait for my cup of tea as I'll need to go for it now...
Oh dear FG - my friend has had council probs for last 2 years about cutting down a hideous evergreen hedge (leylandii) and replacing it with a smart brick wall. She is on a corner, but when I last spoke she thinks they have finally got the permission.
Just been out - discovered still a bit wobbly - OH put on his 'told you so' stance
So windy here,most of the beautiful cherry tree blossom has been blown off,lawn looks like it is covered in pink confetti.
Fairy give me the council number and I'll get 'em for you.
Saying that I've had a letter today from Curry's saying I've cancelled my DD for maintenance cover on my laptop and I need to get in touch by 10th May or too late to continue...Excuse me but what date is it today? and slight detail, I haven't even got one..do have a fridegefreezer but extended warranty paid in full at time of purchase. Just written words all over the letter and sent it back in pre-paid envelope...Fools.
Weather turned out better than forecast, must dash got hubby on a mission digging naughties out from behind shed, was a way to get access to computer and might get rumbled...joke
Chat to all in the morning. Unless I can't contain myself and I'm back later..Newbies take note, it becomes an obsession.
Hello folks I'm back from the GP who is very pleased with my BP - I told her it was all down to spending a day relaxing in Nutcutlet's garden - she doesn't want to see me for 6 months (GP that is, not Nutcutlet - I don't think so anyway ) and I'll be retired by then
KEF-thanks but I'm hoping it's now sorted. Not getting the money they incorrectly took on 7th April for ten days though...great isn't it. If it was the other way round they'd be knocking on the door looking for it. I've just taken on Barclays and got a £50 credit off them because they've admitted it was their fault. The biggest issue I have just now is the previous utility co. I had. I have everything detailed but they have the incorrect 'leaving' date and just won't sort it out...they keep insisting I owe them money when I don't. Taking that one to my lawyer.
And to top it all off...I have an exploding washing machine as featured on Watchdog the other night....no wonder I'm p****d off...
Dove- I'm too scared to go to the doc...my BP must be through the roof..
stay cool folks. Come when you like Dove if you feel the BP might be rising. The mistle thrushes got seen off by another pair. Obviously too close for comfort. Still ahving a bit of a set-to. Don't know how they find the time for mating.
