Can vouch for north Norfolk too - my favourite aunt lived there and we spent a week there every year with the chicklets. Loads to do and see - seals at Blakeney (a la winterwatch), shire horses, farm parks, dinosaur centres, the beach at hunstanton, walks in the woods..........happy days.
Hooray Beau. All that finger crossing worked. So excited for you, and can't wait to see pics of the new plot. What you need is some garden visits in the spring to give you inspiration and ideas
Lyn - huge hugs - nothing more I can say really. Its the most difficult thing in the world, but you are doing all the right things.
Pouring here - no snow for us this time!
Actually - tell a lie - the one in that photo is a self watering version of the same thing. I have a production line going most years - on the heated version to germinate, then on the self watering to grow on a bit, then pricked out to the GH, then in pots and into the cold frame and finally to the garden
I love mine Its one of the ones with 7 mini trays
Here it is last year after the lids had come off. I used to have mixed results growing from seed - now I rarely have disasters Can't wait to get started again this year ...only a few more weeks now
You're doing well Matty - hope each day gets a little easier
I'd be happy to pay more for British milk, just like I do for free range stuff - but i'd worry about whether the extra got passed back through to the farmers. Maybe a return to the milk marketing board is not such a bad idea - make us all aware of the choices we are making
Yvie - i do as Lyn does and grow nerines in pots that i keep in an unheated GH all winter. I get flowers that way, whereas the ones planted in the garden produce leaves every year, but never any flowers (they've been in 5 years, so i've given up hope. Should dig them up really, but they are doing no harm). Hope you made it through the snow for Nanna duties
Littlest chicklet is on a school trip (GCSE mocks finished yesterday) to the theatre in London. Treat for the girls - less so for the parents who have to be there for pick up at 11.45pm. Need to find a way to stay awake til then. If this evening's snow arrives I will be sending OH - i hate hate hate driving in the white stuff
