Need a sausage sandwich to get the brain working KEF?

Trying to work out what I CAN DO in the garden today. This list is varying wildly from what needs to be done! Big lump of beef awaiting my attention for a roast tonight - guess that means I'd best start pottering on!

Useful tool

I'd love a lawn mower that trimmed down the borders of the lawn too.


(I've been getting pop ups for a ride on mower - a bit excessive for our needs!)

OH is snoring away happily here. I keep tapping my mug on the bedside table but he's not getting the hint.

One of my tomato plants is in bud!  Wasn't expecting to see that yesterday. I chanced a couple on an early sowing and (this year at least) it seems to be working out okay - I still keep expecting to wake up to a foot of snow.  I've just planted my last batch of tomato seeds - hoping its not too late / that we'll have a good summer / autumn for them to put on a fine display. At least come August I might have electric point running by the greenhouse to get some heat in there if needed.

Strange as it seems while I'm enjoying watching my chillies and toms grow; I get a little sad watching my onions and garlic getting ever bigger as it just reminds me of how quickly the year is going!!

I actually found myself apologising to my poor chives for not re potting them sooner!

That's it KEF show off at what you're getting done whike we're still lazing in bed.

Hope your brother gets an avcidental wallop around the head with a spade that makes him more useful!

It is very moist outside. 

Might stay in bed!

I hope you all appreciated my not putting up big photos of my mass of wriggling worms (nor the 500g of mealworms that walked themselves across the bench!)

I didn't want to upset OL!!

Yay!! The worms DID arrive!

Pauline, I have similar issues. I'm seriously considering a hip flask to help "lubricate" the joints before I try to get back up
