Starting off as Seedlings

Posted: 26/12/2015 at 15:16

Broad beans are about the earliest to sow, sow in February in pots, to plant out when about 2" tall.

How awful for your neighbour and what a shock, Buttercup, and for you too. He can't have been that old if she was 49? I hope she has friends and family to support her, good that her brother came.

Morning all.

I think you should have some more lazy days DD, sounds as though that's what your back needs. Is it very low back pain? With sciatica it's more common to have pain in your buttock and leg.

I have to prepare bedrooms for my children. All 4 coming, with spouses and 9 children on the 29th when we are having a second Christmas! Must wrap their presents too.

Am full to bursting. Friends to lunch and we've only just finished the washing up - and I have a dishwasher. Was going to watch Strictly but it's on so early I wasn't ready so it's recording. Midwives next. Hope you've all had a good day.

The goose is in the oven, stuffed with chestnut stuffing. Herby sausagemeat stuffing is made for the guinea fowl. Veggies are ready. Friends are doing starter and pud.

Have a lovely day all.

Lovely Fairygirl, gosh that icing is smooth.

What happens then when Christmas is over and the spiders re-appear to enlarge their webs?

Lovely photos, Berghill, just the thing to brighten up a December day.

Dining room table is set for tomorrow, house is de-cobwebbed (wonder how long that will last?), glass paned doors cleaned. Now to make stuffing and prepare veg.

What rotten luck about your back DD, hope it feels better tomorrow. I hope you are having a break from the B&B.

'Twas the night before Christmas...a little homage

I can just repeat what everyone has said - that is brilliant, Fairy. I've read it out loud to OH, copied it onto Word and filed it and printed it out.
