Happy New Year everyone

New Year Gardening Resolutions

Posted: 31/12/2014 at 08:52

I need the labelling resolution printing out in large letters and pasting all over the greenhouse! Every season I manage to break it.

I've had to go out twice to defrost the bird water. Even the pond (2,500 litres of moving water) is freezing over. Lovely and warm in the greenhouse though!


Chicky - that's so cool!! You lucky devil you

Thank you everyone. I really am very grateful: of course dog owners manuals are never written thinking people might like their gardens to be places for anything other than toilets and reading what you're writing is proving fantastic.

Oh Dorset how funny!

Morning all.  Lovely and frosty outside; thinking about all those horrid biting bugs shivering away 

Apparently my greenhouse is being used as a paint booth today  so there'll be no gardening for me. Maybe I'll build a snowman. The neighbours have made an awesome iglo!

Oh PDoc! I hope the greenhouse wasn't full of delicates. Do please write a wish list for replacements.  I'd loan you the space in mine to over winter for any you needed moving until things are sorted but it's full of car parts right now (don't ask!)

Oh dear I am glad I blocked Mike after growing bored of his little feet stamping violin playing tantrums.

Philippa - I'm so sorry to hear about your greenhouse and tree interface issues! I hope you can get their insurance to pay for a greatly improved greenhouse and costs for removing all of that tree.

Thank you Victoria: what kind of hens do you have? The chicken farm ours are coming from said bantams aren't quite as harsh on the garden.
