Good morning all

Panda has a job interview today - fingers are very crossed

Wet here - I can hear the water butts filling up

We may get a flying visit from son some time today, as he's doing valuations in the area ... it'll be nice to see him, but it depends how busy he is ...

Chicky, thanks for the clarification - I seem to have been doing it more or less right   I quickly worked out that pedalling backwards was no longer needed

Amazing sunset this evening

Must be nearly my bedtime   See you in the morning folks ...................

If you're going to start by mowing (as Hogweed suggests) start by having the cutter bar at it's highest, and lower it one level each week, otherwise you'll just have a mess.

Why hasnt my respberry bush flowered

Hmmm - do I understand that you cut it all back?  If so you cut back the canes that would have produced fruit this year. 

For summer fruiting raspberries you only cut back the canes that have produced fruit - leave the younger canes that have grown in the current season and they'll fruit next year.

Nope, the only way I've ever been up that sort of incline has been in a car or on horseback.

I'm just not sure how you're supposed to change gear - I've got one thingy on my left handlebar and one on the right.

I'm used to having one little thingy and having to pedal backwards as you change gear.  My last bike was probably made about the same time as my children were

Any ideas for an entry.....

It would take a fair bit of creativity to come up with an arrangement, but there must be a way ...

Shall we pool our piggy banks?

Or shall we stick with our seed swap?
