Large lawn

You get what you pay for with artificial grass ... the good stuff that looks ok is incredibly expensive to buy and to have installed.  


Much cheaper to get someone to mow your lawn for you for the next ten years or more.

Alicante = tomatoes


Marketmore = cucumbers


The middle pic looks like lettuce seeds to me.  AYR suggests 'All Year Round .


You're in the UK and you've recently sown tomato seeds?   Not really the right time of year ... March/April is when you should be sowing them.

Morning Hosta  I'll look at that link when I'm up and on my laptop ... Still on my phone at the moment. 


The News is saying it's still stormy in Scotland ... Hope Fairy, LilyP, Joyce and others still have their hatches well battened down and their hard hats on ((hugs)).

I worked for a short time in 1969 for a young chap who raced at Santa Pod and owned a Tuscan ... the glorious sound of him changing down as he approached the bend and pulled onto our forecourt each morning will stay with me for ever ... he once let me drive it while he slept in the passenger seat ... I was 17!!! 


Loved it!!!

Good morning all  G'day Pat 


Hope everyone is ok and not too much damage is found out there. 


Quite strong gusts of wind overnight here in the East but nothing like what other parts have had to face ... but of course 30 years ago it was us in the southeast who got the worst of it. I hope no one's cut off and without power for as long this time as we were then. 


Hope Pdoc is safely home and feeling better ((hugs))
