Hi Bal , they're not growing 'cos it's been a bit cooler than they like outside, but as long as their leaves aren't going white they'll be ok.  Think we're in for some better temperatures - I'll be sowing mine soon

One of the benefits of mushroom and fungi is that they help to break down organic matter and make it accessible to the plants - very cool indeed

If you've got a hosepipe this is a good and cheap little sprinkler - you'll get more even coverage and better penetration than with watering cans

Gorgeous here now folks - bright blue skies and the blustery wind of the last few days has dropped a bit 

Those of you who have to work today - I'll enjoy the weather on your behalf so you don't miss out totally - I'm kind like that

Grass-seed likes warm moist soil - it's warming up now so it's probably about right 

Not sure where you are - the rain forecast for East Anglia this weekend is now not going to happen according to the agricultural meteorologists - if you don't get rain this weekend put a sprinkler on the lawn.
