HELLO FORKERS!

Lesley - we hold ghost hunts in the building,  I'm told its quite active or at the very least their imaginations enjoyed themselves!

Got my bargin bin strawberries planted into the ground so we don't get any chilly roots in pots as I was amazed to see what huge rootballs they'd grown after looking so dead and pathetic when I brought (rescued) them. It's at the far end of the garden from where the chickens will be (arriving in spring) so I'm hoping we can easily incorporate it into the eating area and chicken proof it - Clarington only shares so much!

I can't decide whether to plant some of my herbs (Sage, thyme, oregano, camomile when I can find it) in the adjoining plot or something else (garlic, onion... agh the choices!!)

 

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!
