Still none of the promised rain - I even hung a line of jeans out overnight to make sure it would rain, but nothing.  I shall have to put the sprinkler on the front lawn to water in the weed & feed 

Dove - we've guttering and flooring to lay in the shed, I watered all my pots yesterday... why isn't it raining yet?!

Do I talk too much.?

Mike you're over thinking everything aren't you. If we feel the need to tell you to shut up I'm sure we will do. I don't think any of us are above having a little stampy feet tantrum every so often If someone oversteps the mark. If three people tell you - then is a time to think about it, you're safe for now!

Til then enjoy the hearty debates, the silliness, and KEEP ON IMPARTING THAT KNOWLEDGE OF YOURS! I can't tell you how much I have learnt from this forum thanks to people like you tapping away on their keyboard xx

Sounds like you've been busy Clari.

You don't convince OH that you want chickens, you convince him you need chickens 

Nah, you've got it wrong - you convince him that he needs chickens 

Ha ha! This! I think I'll start dropping hints next year once the garden and house is sorted. But that wont stop me planning space in, just in case.

Just tried to be all girly and paint my nails - it hides the ingrained dirt lovely but I just realised I match the wall paint! (See link!) Guess you can figure out my favourite colour

We need some proper rain too OL. I can't believe I'm out with the watering can so soon having been convinced my garlic was going to drown it was so deep under water.

Potted up my chilli seedlings this afternoon which I'm hoping will give them a wee kick up the rump to get growing. The tomatoes are going like they're on a race to reach the moon.

ManShed is coming on nicely - wont be long til he's moved in the good and proper!

This evening I want to start coming up with revision 83 of the herb / vegetable gardens So that they'll be more in keeping with our new dietry needs (since all the fun stuff isnt allowed anymore).

Now; how to convince my partner we want a couple of chickens...

You'll get there eventually OL once your maternal instinct to protect your plants kicks in you'll be grabbing slugs bare handed!

I'm just hoping we get it to work even half as well as the success Edd has been showing us. They (future inlaws) haven't had any success with it though they're not sure why. But I have my gardening helper - this lovely forum!
