Growing garlic

Go for it; there's still plenty of frosts due (frosts help divide the cloves I believe).

Exciting news Edd! As for sea sickness; adrenaline and getting acclimatised will help. I'm afraid I've always had a fine pair of sea legs, it's land that causes me all the trouble.

Other half is full of sniffles and wanted puppy to sleep on the bed with him last night. I couldn't tell if that meant he wanted me to sleep downstairs but "puppy" is definitely getting big now. Talk about a squeeze to get everyone in.

Back to work today full of enthusiasm and thermals. Have fun everyone!

Digging out Daffodils

Like Nutcutlet says; yes. If you keep hacking the leafs off you'll basically starve the plant and thus snuffs it.

I'm sure I'm meant to be doing the washing ... by the very nature of being on here I think you can tell how well it's going!

Steve take photographs of the bomb site! Nothing makes you feel better when looking at photographs than thinking "well at least it doesn't look like *that* anymore".

Dove I heard that 15'C too! I think its because they know I'm going on holiday so very soon (yay!!) I wouldn't know where my swim suit is though: its not been out for years!

Silly season for school visits is ending (September - February) so I'm making the most of March before the scouting camps silly season starts (April - July). We shall have holidays, resting, catching up on maintenance, and seeing my family! Hurrah!
