Good morning Fg  - when we have porridge it's made with water, but we pour a little milk over to cool it.

Good morning all   Tipping it down here so no walking at the moment - I'm visiting my Aged Ps for lunch (chef is cooking Chinese as it's the Chinese New Year tomorrow).  If it's dry I'll go for a walk along the harbour afterwards and buy some really fresh fish 

I finished OH's sweater last night - thing is he's so slim, I knitted the smallest width but he needs some more cake before it'll fit properly - but it'll be fine with a jacket  I've spent nearly 19 years trying to fatten him up but he's got hollow legs.  Good job I bought some more yarn the other day - shall start a jumper for daughter this evening 

Verdun - I like Peugeots

Are you hoping to get fruit from your fig tree?  If so I'd not grow anything through it.

Hurrah, cheers Doc 

Seeds are in various pots, tins and other containers on the bookcase by the back door, along with garden twine, plant labels and secateurs

Hi Poddington P

Membrane wouldn't work as the new shoots spread out from the roots.  

Nothing for it but to dig out the perennial weeds and hand weed the annuals - sorry

unsure of what to do with cherry tomato plant

Hi Monisha   I have no idea about the climate where you are - are you likely to get frosts or will the temperature stay above freezing?

 If it is not going to freeze then I would continue to care for your tomato plant and hopefully as the weather warms up after the winter then it will begin to flower and produce fruit.

Good luck!
