My veg beds have manure put on them late autumn to be worked in in the spring but manure comes from my horses who eat a lot of hay full of wildflower seeds - which aren't wildflowers but are weeds in the veg garden. Seeds seem to survive the rotting process.
Heard that before. And yes weeds grow in Britain as well.
good night all, see you all in the Morning
Night all - back tomorrow
Cold weather still on the cards for Sunday/Monday, so I intend to bring some seedlings and a few plants into the house, today.
Crocus have just sent me another nice little sentry box, ingeniously packed. I might take a snap. I ordered on Wednesday and it arrived yesterday afternoon.
I also received an Email from Tesco Direct. It seems that you can buy Crocus stuff through them. I can't see that that can be more efficient, or cheaper, than ordering directly from Crocus.
I haven't watched GW yet. It's on my recorder. I was watching an interesting film instead. That probably says something about my expectations of the program.
Morning Folks - Another grey miserable day here, but cheer up everyone, it's only 12 days to the official start of Spring.
Got a busy day planned. Daughter's birthday today, Grandson's birthday tomorrow on Mother's Day . We are all having a get-together so I'm looking forward to it,
Bjay - if you are around - didn't manage to get to H.B. yesterday so will go today and report back on the seed disk situation.
Have a good day all.
Morning all. Been having a bit of a lie-in. Seems as if others are as well. No weather here. Time for brekkie, back later.
Up early today, kids fed and dressed, weather is that horrible mist rain that soaks you without knowing it. It's managed to keep raining since yesterday but only managed 2mm according to rain gauge!. Going to sow some chilli seeds today, they'll be in a tray in electric propagator in conservatory. Really need to have a good clear up in GH, take my bubble-wrap tent down and get the mahoosive propagator ready for action. The chillis I'm going to try to grow are super hot Bird-eye. They were bought to rub on my eldest daughter's thumb nails to stop that thumbsucking! I don't like chilli, my missus isn't keen and neither do the kids, so why grow them? Well, why not? Something to flog down the car-boot isn't it!
Hope you guys have a good day, catch you laters.
GoodMorning all ,misty rain here aswell oh well ?
Morning all. Light rain here, but looks as though it will clear up. Housework today.OH has already hoovered the kitchen floor, now I must wash it. Ageratums have germinated! Sowed 4 days ago.
Dull day here. Just booked my car in for it's MOT for Tuesday! Hopefully my walking days will be over soon!
Might do a bit more outside today, depending on ground conditions. Haven't been out there yet.
Being called 'lovelies' always makes me smile, Becks
Glyn, glad to hear your war wound is improving. Marking but you'll be glad tomorrow !
