Start by cncentrating on a small part, dig out some beds (get rid of all the perennial weeds) and get sowing/planting.  Then whilst you are tending that bit, and hopefully having some success, you can work on the rest of it bit by bit.  Big jobs are always easier if you break them down into small bits

Morning Pat - I'm one of todays early birds.  Sunny and no frost here too. Same weather, different side of the planet

Think I will be looking for some ready grown tomato plants today - mine are officially deceased  Didn't bring them back in quick enough at the start of that cold spell, and they have been struggling (unsuccessfully) to recover.  Do you think its too late to sow from scratch again?

What a beautiful place Buttercup - and those views are immense.  Love the terraces, and look forward to seeing your projects as they come along.  Now I can see why you get problems with howling gales

Oh, but KEF - remember what happened when they were "on a break" - chaos ensued that took another seven series to put right

Good to see Fairy too.  Sympathise about the builders - ours were here for 6 months, and lovely chaps though they were I was mighty pleased to see the back of them.  Think the highlight of the whole experience was a month of microwaved food, and washing up plates in plastic trugs in the bath.  But it transformed our house, so was worth it in the end.  Just keep repeating that mantra, ad infinitum, whilst you smile through gritted teeth (gritted, no doubt, due to builders dust)

anyone know what this plants is?

The last one could be forget me not, and the first is a weed in my garden - appears everywhere, but I don't know what its called (apart from a menace).
