Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

Posted: 07/01/2017 at 14:18

Mine did that once when I used to use paraffin heaters. I cut down the wick and it was better. So much easier now that OH has installed electricity.

Happy Birthday, Bracken. I hope you are feeling well on your special day.

I hope your OH's hand is OK and not painful today, daydaisy.

Grey and a bit drizzly in Norfolk.

Yes, Hazel, yukky. Is yours better now, if so, how long did it take?

OH has gone to get his hair cut so I've got up and come down to have a go at the laptop. I find it easier than the iPad.

I like the bypass ones. I have one that is over 30 years old but I don't know the make. OH had anvil ones which I didn't like, but maybe that was because they were extendible and one arm kept extending when you didn't want it too. I've just bought him some bypass Fiskars ones which seem good.

Planting roses

I usually dig out a barrow load of soil and swap it with a barrowload from the veg garden when planting a new rose where an old one has been, then dig in organic rose fertilizer and manure.

Plant orders for 2017

The French catalogues aren't out yet, or perhaps they've stopped sending them to me as I don't order enough! I usually buy seeds in England, there is a much better choice. I did get an email from the plug plant people to say their catalogue will be out soon.

LG, we must have different lurgies, I've been very bunged up, quite disgusting! Coughing a lot too. OH has been so sweet, not put off at the awful sight and sound!

The boiler turned itself off sometime in the night, so no heating or hot water this morning. I tried ringing for a Corgi man, but it's Saturday. OH had a fiddle with it and it's working again. He thinks the pressure is too low, maybe I'll call the chap in the village on Monday.

I've had a relaxing morning in bed reading my book and playing with OH's iPad.

I hope Lily P gets there safe and sound, despite cold and strike.

Waiting for Hosta's next installment!
