Good luck! Remember that we still have the odd chilly night / day which will slow down the growth rate as well.

Dove your pond sounds amazing! I'm hoping to be able to afford the timber to finish off the outside of my pond next month so that I can then add some more plants (we've blanket weed already! Grr...) And start work on making it wild life friendly. I'm thinking of using pebbles inside but haven't worked out how to make the outside friendly without distracting from the overall look.

I went to the supermarket on Monday to shop for my severely restricted diet (medical problems - no bikini diets going on here). Oh my goodness the price of fresh fruit and veg when that's all you can eat (aka I can't bulk it out with a nice piece of steak) is insane!! It's given me a much needed kick up the rump to get my vegetable garden finished so that I can start growing my own fruits and veg in season and hopefully eventually get a bit of a glut to freeze / preserve for out of season treats that wont be breaking my bank account. I'm already trying to work out if I can fit a small chest freezer in my "lady lair" (think of it as a ManCave but with the washing machine & tumble drier in!) but perhaps that's running before I can walk!

Bumping this thread back up to the top because I'd like to know as well. Last year my pumpkin plants vrew strongly but each time a pumpkin would appear a few days later it fell off.

Was last year just a bad year? :/
