In my experience the tinier the seed they longer they take and I can still gow them on in the right conditions-which is why the tomato seeds are still in the packet.

No I haven't, it's about 6 hours from where I live, not counting stops. I would like to one day. It would be like visiting a garden in Yorkshire from where you live! I have seen some of the chateau in the Loire and their gardens, on a weekend trip, about 4 -5 hours from here.

OH in his short tempered mode tried to force the seat belt catch into the socket thing and it wouldn't go so he forced it. If he had taken the trouble to look he would have seen that a stud thing on the end of one of his zipz was blocking the hole. Result stud thing in seat belt socket , seat belt won't fasten, can't get stud thing out £50 - £150 depending on what needs to be done when all dismantled. This involves moving drivers seat, removing seat belt thing, hopfully removing stud, if not then replace whole thing as it is illegal.

He is now hiding in Big room, sulkong, and it is his fault, oh yes and he can't do it himself as he is useless

Afties all.  Just a quick visit - haven't got time to catch up so hope everyone is OK.  Poor BJay - it's all gone downhill since the Bonio box episode - perhaps OH will buy you a nice present for Valentine's Day to make amends .

Has been dry today so managed more tidying up in the garden.  Have sorted all pots and seed trays ready to start sowing soon .

You must be joking - doesn't do Valentines day and I'm at a meeting.

11/02/2013 at 16:29
**makes note to tell rosa's OH time to buy pressy **

Instead of us buying each other Valentine cards/gifts we send the money we would have spent on them to the Dogs Trust.  We sponsor "The Oakfield Oldies" (the dogs too old to be rehomed)  and we always get a Valentine's card from one of them.

11/02/2013 at 16:31

11/02/2013 at 16:33
