Fg - there weren't any 'nice young men' around when I was younger either ............ but I found one later on ...... there's a lot to be said for having one of those 

GW (paper) magazine has cookery bits, showing you what to do with what you grow ... and we talk about cake so often, and now we've got a recipe thread - they probably think there's a demand for it ... and of course the GB Allotment  programme was about cooking as well as growing - do you think Monty will show us how to make raspberry vodka?   after all, we know he likes a tipple  

Back lawn mowed now and mower put away ... just going to strim the edges ....... when I've had a coffee ......

Joyce, you can peg them out on my line ... I've got two and I've only got a couple of pairs of jeans and some socks and undies to go out ... just hold on a minute while I finish cutting the back lawn (I've done the front) ...... there's a nice stiff breeze here so even towels won't take long ...

What about making them (and you) a bog garden   There are some wonderful beautiful bog plants.  It could have a small area of standing water in it but not actually a pond ............

Good morning all  G'day Pat 

A quiet day ahead, a bit of deadheading and also got to get someone to come and service the boiler. It's playing up and the chap we usually have isnt available cos he's gone to work away. We used to have British Gas on annual contract. Will probably go back to them unless anyone had any better recommendations?
