Free super 100 tomato seeds

Posted: 03/04/2016 at 20:16

I sowed mine the same day 26th March and in the same way that I sowed two other varieties.  The other two germinated on the 29th and 30th -  of the free ones only two seeds have germinated and very weak specimens they are too.  I'll give them a bit longer but I'm not impressed so far

DD have a lovely trip  and a visit to Hosta - he really is a lovely chap - one of the best - and his garden and the view from his windows ...... to die for

BL - have a good journey over here - if you fancy/have time for a trip to S'wold I may be spending quite a bit of time there and would possibly be up for a chat and a coffee/pint/lunch or whatever ...... but I'll quite understand if you've got other things planned

Fairy .....

 We've just had roast belly of pork with roasted apples and onions, new potatoes and curly kale.  That's the last lot of cholesterol-laden food that will pass my lips until next weekend.  After my last blood test we're going demi-veg during the week and only eating meat at the weekend.  I'm a bit of an all or nothing girl and I think I can handle it this way best.

Downpours Hosta?  What downpours?

I've been playing with a warm hosepipe in the back garden, planning the shape of the new bed

Hi Andrew

Is it planted in the ground or in a container?

Do you know why it's leaning - is it because of a prevailing wind?

Big  fleas have little fleas,
Upon their backs to bite 'em,
And little fleas have lesser fleas,
And so, ad infinitum.

And the great fleas, themselves, in turn
Have greater fleas to go on;
While these again have greater still
And greater still, and so on.

Crossroads were a real lifeline for many of the families I worked with.

Spread the compost out on a tarpaulin/sheet of plastic or similar and leave it for a couple of days - the birds will help themselves to any remaining grubs etc - you can then put the compost on the garden.

Love a bargain

We got a bargain today - driving back from visiting Ma we passed a house with a sign

Free Horse Manure - we filled the car boot with six bags full of pony poo and now they're stacked in the garden - when we empty the compost bins they'll be added bit by bit to the new heap - marvellous!
