Something has eaten the plastic lid of my slug pellets

I've had mice seemingly living on a diet of carrier bags and washing up tablets - they seem to be quite hardy! Perhaps if you've no droppings once it got into the container it decided it wasn't all that keen and moved on?

Aww Stacey that's somewhat pants!! Hoping treatment isn't too draining on you and you're ready to take on the chillies come Christmas! 

It was 3'C last night when I finished work at 03:00. Best start looking at moving the delicates inside and my mini orange trees away from the bedroom window that *has* to be open regardless of the weather.

I have today AND tomorrow off and I'll let you all into a secret - I don't intend on spending them working for a change!

Morning all. Boss is off today - poor devil caught my cold! Hoping he recovers soon I need his help with my many many projects. I have a day off on Sunday AND Monday! Two days off is like a mini holiday!  Shame I wont be finishing work til 03:00 on Sunday morning though. Hoping the weather is going to be good my poor garden is so neglected

I'm in South Yorkshire and am drying chillies threaded on string just hanging in the kitchen window. It seems to be working! (I've others in white wine vinegar and more straight in the freezer).

I'm trying (on top of work, decorating, generally being awesome) to create a rather overly ambitious gift for grandfathers special birthday. For part of it I would love to sew in a special quote about gardening (one of his favourite hobbies alongside photography) but I really can't find anything.


So I thought I would sneak on here (sssh I'm meant to be cooking) and find some inspiration from my wonderful friends on here. Do you have a favourite quote that sums up the pleasure you find in the garden? 

Thank you
