HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 27/04/2014 at 08:21

OH is snoring away happily here. I keep tapping my mug on the bedside table but he's not getting the hint.

One of my tomato plants is in bud!  Wasn't expecting to see that yesterday. I chanced a couple on an early sowing and (this year at least) it seems to be working out okay - I still keep expecting to wake up to a foot of snow.  I've just planted my last batch of tomato seeds - hoping its not too late / that we'll have a good summer / autumn for them to put on a fine display. At least come August I might have electric point running by the greenhouse to get some heat in there if needed.

Strange as it seems while I'm enjoying watching my chillies and toms grow; I get a little sad watching my onions and garlic getting ever bigger as it just reminds me of how quickly the year is going!!

I actually found myself apologising to my poor chives for not re potting them sooner!

I hope you all appreciated my not putting up big photos of my mass of wriggling worms (nor the 500g of mealworms that walked themselves across the bench!)

I didn't want to upset OL!!

Pauline, I have similar issues. I'm seriously considering a hip flask to help "lubricate" the joints before I try to get back up

We've a robin nesting I suspect in the garden hedges. It is funny to be out digging in the garden to have to stop as you're worried you're going to catch this little bird with your shovel as it sits up close as it can to get the worms as they appear in the turned earth.

Just checked the tracking device. They HAVEN'T left it by the gate as requested (I left a secure box to put them in). Looks like I'll have to hope they left a "collect from here" note as I'm worried if they don't redeliver tomorrow morning (unlikely being a Saturday) the poor devils will NOT be happy waiting until Monday!!
