Sounds like you've been busy Clari.

You don't convince OH that you want chickens, you convince him you need chickens 

Nah, you've got it wrong - you convince him that he needs chickens

Hello folks!  We're back home   Panda, thanks for getting the washing in ((hugs)) but the rain didn't get up this far - we had a shower when we hit the A12 but by the time we left the Aged Ps and headed inland for lunch it was dry again (we went here - the best pub in the world!!!)  

I've been out with the watering cans watering all the tubs and pots - if we don't get a good soaking tonight I'll have to put the sprinkler on the lawn -  I put weed & feed on yesterday 'cos I believed the weather forecast

Plenty of coffee but you'll have to help yourself - if you'd keep an eye on the washng that'd be good too - we're off to the APs.  See you later

Grass seed

I think it'll be fine as soon as it warms up.  I sowed some grass seed over bare patches on the lawn last September - as the ground was so warm after the summer it germinated within a few days!  It always takes longer in the spring 

Keep us informed!

I've not sown mine yet - I don't have a proper greenhouse so I have to wait until there's room on the kitchen windowsill - probably sow them next week - end of April is usual for me.
