Morning Lovely sunny day here - none of the ''s'' word so will be getting outside when it warms up and then some more pricking out .
Why is it when you discipline yourself to sowing half a packet of seeds, you get millions of plants regardless ?
Have a good day everyone.
Good Morning All, Happy Easter.
Have altered all the clocks and now just hope that it signals a change in the weather We put old perspex roofing sheets over some of the veg garden yesterday to try to warm up the soil.
It's a nice morning here, bright sunshine, looks cold outside and there is ice on the pond.
Have a good day whatever you get up to, don't eat too many Easter Eggs if there is such a thing
just wondered if you got your Taccas. I haven't been around much lately so might have missed your post.
Glorious sunny day - but Brrrrr!
Last night I could hardely move my arm so it is a taking it easy day today. No raised bed work
I am going to be sowing, potting on, pricking out and marking out a new bed - an extension of the white border I already have.
Originally it was going to have a little summer house in it to be a M free zone for me,I looked at the plans - had already worked out plants so I thought would follow it but add extra's. It gets quite a lot of sun so should be fun, I have aready bought a couple of magnolias for it - we're not talking small here - a buddleia and a camellia.
Will of course photo later - may even be able to persuade OH that he can plant the magnolias
Morning Easter Forkers
Gorgeous sunshiney day, though still not warm. Starting slowly, changing clocks as they catch my attention. Bit of a problem with the sundial Also the unadjustable car clock where you have to add one to the hour (converting from 24 hour if need be) and subtract 19 from the minutes.
Bunny and Dave, that was hilarious
Off to start on cleaning patio now.
Morning Chris No , taccas still haven't arrived. Think I may send an e-mail.
Don't suppose an Easter egg counts as breakfast ?
Morning all- not staying long -happy chocolate day to all and sundry
Bunny yes you can come and play - hole digging skills always welcome
Blue skies here. I am psyching myself up for an assault on the allotment. I'm hoping there won't be too many people down there (antisocialOldGits'R'Us) as most people will probably be doing the family thing today. 6 bags of compost in the back of the Land Rover to dump there awaiting arrival of more raised beds.
I shall dig......
I definitely think Easter Eggs count as breakfast today! I had hot cross buns again. Just trying to decide if I want lunch at 1ish as usual. Trouble is if I leave it later it's less garden time. Only soup and bits, though. Main meal later. Must pick some rhubarb.
Does she mind being humped - Oscar always greets strange dogs like that - not fussy about their sex
Managed a couple of hours at the allotment - I'm not very fit, and the air is still cold on the lungs out there. There wasn't a soul there for most of the time, then Allotment Chief arrived - he's a bit of a PITA. Why was I buying ready amde raised beds when you could get scaffolding planks, people would help me build them etc, etc. Nobody is ever there at the same time as I am, for a start. And I prefer to do things for myself.
Here's the allotment:
I planted my broad beans - please note fork handle:
And here is the allotment of the obsessive bloke at the back of mine - blimey!
