Disagreeing calmly and respecting each other's opinions isn't a row - a row is when you say nasty unkind things to each other - that's not healthy - believe me I know, been there, done that - being unkind to each other isn't healthy, not no way!

A person cannot be nagged if  they do what he's told first time.

That was Pa's philosophy - and as he got older he also developed intermittent deafness too.  As he pointed out, Ma had never knowingly been wrong and he wasn't going to be the person to tell her what she didn't know

Good morning DD and anyone else who's about   G'day Pat if you're around

Pretty blustery and jolly wet here but thoughts with those of you more affected by Storm Katie - hope everyone's got their hatches battened down and their hard hats on and not too much damage done.  ((hugs))

What is your weather like?

Take care Flowers!

Windy here in Norfolk too and it's been very wet, there are a couple of inches of water laying on one end of the herb bed.  Temp 6.9C at the moment.

According to R4 news it's much worse on the south coast.  Keep your heads down and your hatches battened folks ((hugs))

I use an old yoghurt pot or cream carton - weigh the right amount out and mark  the level on the carton with a felt tip pen.  Then you can use it as a scoop

Hello Hill Crest and welcome to the forum

They wouldn't - they'd spread things around - Pansyface is right - nasturtium seeds

Have jays or squirrels been burying peanuts in your raised bed?

Like this

Marc - believe me, the strength of light received through a window is totally different to light received by a plant outside.  Even in a greenhouse plants don't get as much light as those outside. 

Get some large clear plastic water/lemonade bottles.  Cut the bases off and take the caps off (you can drink the water/lemonade if you wish )

Put the plants outside and put the bottles over them like cloches - that'll protect them from the wind and slugs and they'll grow strong and sturdy.

But I'm not going to sow mine until the end of April.
