Just taken this pic especially for this thread. This is a pruning knife belonging to my granddad, who was head gardener for one of the pottery moguls of the day, during the late 1800s

A proper shed, archiepem!

My grandad didn't have a garden just a yard but every year he would buy my grandma ( or at least he said he bought) a huge pot of chrysanthemums to brighten it up....... I do remember visiting in the summer and on hot nights he would spread a bed sheet over the washing line like a tent and we would have a tea party. When he passed mum gave me the teapot oh and his home made crinkle chip cutter ( which is te best over) nice to remember those times

scrap silver is on the up though Archie i bet she will be wanting it now

Every bloke should have a shed.

Paid a visit to the allotment other day.....just to get sundries, dont have an allotment....and their allotment shed was full of guys sipping tea and coffee.  Lovely but I would be bored after 10 mins of that I think.

I have a trophy in my shed - it's not mine though.  My father in law got it for sailing and his missus won't have it in their house so he gave it to my missus who won't have it in our house...

I'd be careful too Diddy.  I however, won't say why 

Oh..  My iPad played up again.  I actually wrote that women are great thinkers too 

(Actually I've got to admit I've been very,impressed with the exploits of the women folk here.   Some of the physical work involved has been quite inspiring. Hope Fairygirl reads this )

The potty gardener

Think that you may unwittingly have found the problem Verd- men are great thinkers..... women are great doers (is that how it should be spelt?)

Hey potty.  You may well be right....

My Grandfather used to have old tin baths hanging on the wall of his shed,I remember as children we used to go around hitting them with sticks like huge drums.
