So this is where you all are!
You have have to follow a thread for a bit to understand what everyone's talking about and I think I've fallen behind on this one.
(Sorry, did everyone just stop talking when I came in? )
Just thought I'd say I got quite a lot done today after a late start. Weather looked doubtful at first but I just pottered around with no high expectations and found by the time the light had faded I had achieved the following:
weeded out a bit more of the d****d ground elder;
planted out last 8 verbena patchwork (- nice robust specimens with lovely colourful flower clusters;)
bought 3 nasturtiums alaska on Friday on an indoor market I've discovered. They went into the cleared area around the black currants and gooseberries. I've mulched there with spent compost - apparently, they like being 'starved' a bit.
Picked more gooseberries - had about 550g so far off one small bush. Only got 8 (berries) last year. Better pruned this time.
Cleared another of last year's containers - more mulch for somewhere;
Planted out 5 more begonias in trough; not sure whether they're going to do do well or not... A bit underdeveloped! Mind you, weren't we all once?
Pulled some rhubarb - but just eaten it with a bit of TV - isn't that fairly consistent with a few of you: 'virtuously knackeredso with your feet up?
ZZZZZZZzzzzzz mmmph - what? (Oh sorry, you can resume talking now - I'm off to bed. )
PS what's all this business of beating each other to a deadline? When is it - 6pm?
