First day on the allotment...

I think it's the 'sharing' Chris is talking about 

What can I start sowing now in an unheated greenhouse

The above  is a helpful website - if you click on the plant you're interested in growing it will tell you whether it needs heat and/or frost protection etc. 

And of course, the What to do now section of this site (link at the top of this page) will have some ideas for you too

Good morning Lily

Good morning Pam - I was wondering how you and Verdun and all your friends and neighbours were coping - I listened to the early morning weather forecast and it sounded awful down your way

Hello folks .............. and I hope  you''re all going to celebrate National Yorkshire Pudding Day on Sunday   

Don't forget folks - it's got to be a roast dinner tomorrow!!!    Or maybe Toad in the Hole 

We haven't had roast pork since before Christmas so I think I'll look out for a nice piece of Blythburgh free range pork on my way to visit daughter in law this morning -  sage and onion stuffing and crispy crackling - remember, Yorkshires aren't just for roast beef .............

Winter work on moss?

Posted: 01/02/2014 at 07:28

In the past I've used the Evergreen complete and it's been very effective when used according to the directions.


I don't use any 'chemicals' on the lawns in this garden as we have a lot of wildlife, frogs etc and wildflowers in the lawn which we are very happy with - it takes a bit of raking and aerating to keep the moss under control - but it's cheaper than going to the gym

Good morning Clari - I'm off to have lunch later with my daughter in law to start proper planning for my trip to Russia - don't you work too hard 

Winter work on moss?

I'd keep off the lawn while it's as wet as it is at the moment - doing anything to it while we've got this amount of sogginess will do more harm than good

Good morning all   Happy February - let's hope it doesn't live up to it's old name of Fill-dyke - the ditches are already brimming over 

Well you lot were chatty last evening!  I nodded off on the sofa - which meant that I was up before the lark this morning so was out for my stomp at 6am - even woke a wren up - he chattered at me angrily as I walked past his tree.
