MORNING FORKERS

Posted: 22/04/2013 at 06:37

Morning all it's a bit cooler this morning just done my greenhouse check before heading off to work everything fine. Bad news the weather in Scotland to get colder at the weekend maybe a touch of frost. Going to start my hanging baskets this Sat and leave them in the greenhouse for a few weeks.

Lol sorry Fairygirl just a minor error but there's plenty of good auld Scottish words we could use but would be hard for some to understand.

Fairygirl i don't smoke or drink not out much maybe a meal or the gardening club most of my time spent in the garden if not at work as a school janitor in my village primary. Used to be a professional greyhound trainer for over 20 years that took up all my spare time. Then last year took ill so sold all my own dogs and the owners moved there dogs to another trainer. So now all my time is spent in my garden which was all red chips and concrete but not anymore hopefully by the end of the year the main structure will be in place and next year will not be as hard work but must say am really enjoying doing it and learning from everyone along the way.Don't know a great deal about gardening but when it comes to a dogs health yes know a lot more as father had dogs since 1941 greyhounds.  

Where have all the hostas gone?

Cloche/mini greenhouse made out of bubblewrap

Posted: 20/04/2013 at 08:46

Sam i built a cold frame from secondhand 2x2 wood with bubble-wrap nailed with felt tacks inside the frame and clear plastic bags opened up and tacked on the outside and roof used a bath screen panel for the front with a half sliding door. Grew plug plants and young plants in it all through the winter and all done great no heating here's a photo of it.
