Looking ahead to next year and getting organized

Posted: Today at 07:44

Snowie, I'm also quite new in the garden and am really struggling with work time and health restrictions getting in the way of the garden. What I've found really useful is creating a to do list based on the Gardeners World "what to do now" link (here: )

My to do list (under construction) is here: I'm using an online blog so I can't loose it (very important as my memory is awful) & so if I see an awesome idea I can add it quickly no matter where I am be it work, hospital,  or at the parents.

I'm going to my wish list today (rare day off) to start trying to lay out my plans. Hope yours go well!!

You know I stipulated that for mine Dove! Although getting a Defender just so I could pressure wash excess manure spillages might have been excessive! (Both mothers got a few ton of horse muck for mothers day and now oh's father has requested a ton for his birthday so it's proving its worth!)

Morning Mrs Garden! Just tell them you were testing out the boot capacity! These thimgs matter when looking at new cars. 

The Supernatural

Posted: Today at 07:02

I work in a museum that was once a police and fire station (also housed the ambulance and the mortuary van). Its 114 years old and has about 10 regular spirits plus countless others that seem to visit the paranormal investigation teams on an irregular basis. I wont give you details but you can imagine that those in the cells aren't always the nicest of things to meet...

I've solent wight to try this year but thought I'd try elephant for the novelty factor and that it's good for roasts so isn't purely to keep myself amused..

Morning all. Big day at work and to be honest I'm cream crackered! Thank goodness tomorrow is my day off and next week I'm even getting a proper "weekend" - these one day offs really scramble my brain.

Does anyone know if elephant garlic will grow happily in a pot?

Should I leave my onions

Posted: 28/10/2014 at 07:27

What kind of onions are they? My electric red onions were monsters this year making shop brought look very pathetic but I'm just wondering how big yours should have grown before we strike them as a poor lot.
