Definitely more coffee needed Kef. Or more sleep less work but I guess we'll not see that one for a while!

 Screen shots of my potatoes.  After my weekend away I came back to find something had eaten every leaf from my potatoes so they might not have been ready but I didn't think they'd grow any more without greenery. I grew in bags and found the soil around them had near set like concrete which is something to sort out next year.

Morning all!

Bags of potting compost purchased - absolutely rubbish

I've found the (10 bags purchased so far...) cheap stuff from Wickes to be some of the better quality (texture, lack of smell, lack of bolts and chunks in it) I've used.

Good to hear Dove!

Morning all! Got home late last night from my little adventure. Only managed three hours sleep on the Saturday night so am really rather tired now!

Next time I must book the Monday off!

Will do!

I'm hoping we can Dove - we've a big bbq planned! (I'm driving an ambulance and there'll be a police car going too but they're not as fun as the fire engines).

Watercress? Yes!

Does anyone have fish and watercress in their pond? My fish have destroyed just under £50 worth of oxygenating plants happily munching away even though the fish specialist said they don't normally like this variety. Just wondering if I can start growing water cress in there to give them something less critical to much on!
