If it helps with identification, it was particularly bad yesterday evening - took me 4 attempts to post something without losing the lot - the error message goes something like "there was a problem with this page so it was reloaded"

Hope LilyP got some more sleep - maybe subconciously you think littl'un is still around.

Great sign Pat, and even greater sky ☀️⛅️☁️

Why do weekends speed by? Could really do with another day to myself

Raised beds sound good, plus plenty of added oraganic matter.  We have a veg bed where a row of the dreaded leylandii once stood.  We had the stumps ground out (by a man with a stump grinder) and fished out loads of roots, but have been growing things successfully ......just keep piling on the muck !

Didn't quite dodge the showers Fairy, but we have good waterproofs ☔️💦☔️. Persevere with that coldframe, they are sooooo useful

Glad to hear the sun is shining north of the border 

All my first batch of seeds have germinated and been moved to the next propagator, so now I have room to start some more ....a task for one evening this week

Hi Nora - is there any news on this issue yet?  It would be nice to know the answers to a number of questions:

1. Have the team managed to replicate the problem, using the details we all provided of the systems we are using?

2.  If they have replicated it, do they know what is causing it?

3. If they know what is causing it, do they know how to fix it?

4.  If there is a fix, where does it sit in the priority list of site problems and when are we likely to see an improvement?

I am sure I'm not the only one who would appreciate an update. Many thanks

Forecast was rain all day, but they got it wrong . Beautiful at the moment with just the odd short sharp downpour.  Sowed my sweetpeas and used my christmas present for the first time ....a dutch hoe - certainly made quick work of the weeding - lets see how quickly they come back.  It might just be my new best friend 

Now off for a walk up Black Down ....will take waterproofs - hoping to catch a sunset

Saw the first red admiral of the year, basking on our stone wall.  Shortly followed by a bumbley bee buzzing by.  Times they are a-changing

Morning . Nearly the weekend 

Pergola plans look great Wonky - not only will it give you privacy, but a bit of height in a garden always transforms it too.  Looking forward to progress pics 

Sounds like a mammoth prun-a-thon Liri - those trees and bushes are going to be laden this summer .

I am finally getting up in the light, and leaving the office before the sun sets (usually)........hooooray🎉🎉🎉
