Here in the Midlands, temperatures towards the middle of next week are forecast to be 14c by day & 9c by night. If this holds true, I'll probably be sowing my SP seed......this is of course in a cold greenhouse (or coldframe) not indoors or in a propagator.

Anyone further north, I would be wise to sow for sure.

Taken delivery of this pair of Draper secateurs today and have to say I'm delighted with them. I have to say it was the wooden handles & slightly retro look that appealed...Having said that, I've always trusted Draper tools and found them to be of good quality without being outrageously priced.

Bit of a nightmare at this time of year, I've managed to keep mine clear with fortnightly spays of 'Roseclear'.

Potato berry???

Actually. potatoes & tomatoes are members of the deadly nightshade family -  Solanaceae.

The poison in those potato seed fruits is  Solanine, this poison is also present in green potatoes which shouldn't be eaten either.

David, sounds like you've been listening to Delia!  I see your logic re the penalty shooter.

 

Not much passes me by, Nd  cept when I'm in goal.

Stevie G takes penalties for Liverpool (as he did for England) because he misses less than anyone else.

Good luck with the scenario you've been dreaming about.
