Not-Entirely-Scotch-Bonnet are germinating well, as are my FireCrackers. Impatiently waiting for the rest to show. No chilly w. this year owing to loosing the damned seed packets - every one of them!

 

Stacey: you must eat sleep dream chillies!!

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all.  Wanted to go to work early today- Reggie is refusing to get out of bed! He's meant to be coming with me as I may need to stay late (my classroom is being painted today and I've 62 students visiting tomorrow). Gave him a worming tablet on Tuesday so I'm hoping he's not reacted to it. At 23kg he's a bit of a handful to force into the garden!!

What's flowering in your garden today?

A few snowdrops, an iris (purple), 

What I'm noticing most is all the weeds appearing!

Afternoon all. I really did miss you this morning! Ended up hauling my rump out of bed far too early and really confused the dog! Having my afternoon inspiration injection: the to do list is getting longer I'm sure.

 

Right: have fun everyone!

I have no reason to believe its nothing but 100% genuine. I think mother nature sent out a memo this morning as I can home to find this:

(I got them in a net to release the poor little fish from froggies intentions before you worry).

Today is feeling quite an odd day. Took Reggie to the vets to collect some worming tablets and have him weighed (he's only gained one 1kg - where the devil he's putting all this food we give him I've no idea!! I'm a little concerned although its entirely possible he lost a lot of weight after his first bath (post weigh in) as the poor devil was so muddy from the kennels! Less long walks, a little more food, worming tablet, and we'll see what happens next month.

Now at work and I've not only lost my to do list but the clipboard it was attached too! Its left me feeling very odd and confused. I have such great plans - but without them written down I've little chance of remembering them. I hope its not with the chilly seeds I was meant to send KEF: someone is going to be in for a shock if they find it for sure!

Lesley - I have vast quantities of washing and paperwork. Edd can choose which one he'd rather be paid with! 

Slug farmers. Volunteers needed. (There's is method in my madness)

That's a really interesting (yet gruesome) idea! Perhaps when the vegetable garden is done I shall be joining you in this experiment Edd.
