As usual I am late to the party; hope there are some crumbs left!
What a lovely baby photo--brand new!
I have grown amaranth in pots for the lovely foliage--deep burgundy, and stunning with the sun behind it.Unusual flowers, and apparently you can eat the seeds as a grain. Don't know what variety--there are several kinds and colours. Am doing again this year-but early yet. Would get quite tall if planted in the ground.
I hope my pressie is new secateurs Bunny. Found mine rusted yesterday.
I think Christmas is over
Dinner ate,pressies opened,crackers pulled.
What is next?

Seems like we've all been planting up Will you be selling those strawberries at Wimbledon , Dean ? You have been busy. Seriously thinking about having a go at growing veg but that means evicting some of my plants - don't know if I'm up for that but may have a dabble at toms this year.
Just had a sort of Christmas dinner - defrosted the last of the turkey and pork yesterday and we just had a roast - not bad but I just don't think meat tastes the same after it's been frozen.
Think I've got room for pud though .
You have been busy Dean, but then arent you always? My pots of strawberry runners are still on the veg plot with their pots covering the ground to help prevent local cats using it. They will get moved into the cold greenhouse sometime soon, ready for a big pot this year.
Havent sown a single seed yet this time- sweetpeas first, then not sure......
The box got started, thxs for the wine BTW, added to the rest have drunk.... what box?!! I do need to go & put it back into wardrobe again though, , otherwise wont be easy to get into bed tonight.
Right, am signing off now. OH set to leave at his very early time tomorrow, he's moving better. Then heating/plumbing engineer & electrician are due. Joy. J.
Dean i have planted seed the same as you without the tomatoes. No more space. Also popped in some broad beans - inside not out.
Just had dinner with last of summer ratatouille topped up by fresh toms and peppers, type of french bread freshly baked a la OH and a gammon steak.
Oh more cold and snow up north for the week.
Get the thermals out for this week- when the north wind do blow etc.
