DD - I feel for you - my OH can't cope with hyacinths indoors so since we've been together I've not grown them ...    And re your back - you should compare notes with Wonky - she gets problems with her sciatic nerve if she's not careful!

Hi Aster - this may be helpful

Hi Steven and Merry Christmas

My best advice would be to talk to other allotment holders - their local knowledge and experience will be invaluable and they will be your allies in the adventures to come.

I also recommend joining your local Horticultural Society - put your postcode in here

Good luck

As an Agatha Christie fan, Wonky has drawn my attention to the three day Aiden Turner Fest, starting this evening (Boxing Day) at 9pm on BBC 2, and continuing on Sunday and Monday - And then there were none ...  with a great cast and featuring Aiden Turner who, if the Radio Times is to be believed, spends the whole three evenings wearing little more than a towel .......

Will someone please give Runnybeak a sedative and a cold shower ............

Good morning all   G'day Pat

Sorry to hear about the bushfires   The BBC news website is covering the Australian fire situation.  In the Northwest of the UK the army have been brought in and are helping prepare for the next expected deluge - erecting metal flood barriers and filling sandbags etc.  Also evacuating the vulnerable.

We had a lovely day yesterday - our grilled lobsters were wonderful   We had some lovely presents and had a lovely walk across the marshes.  Not sure what the plans are for today.  Think the forecast is for wet here too, so don't suppose we'll get outside ... we might just have to eat pork pie, cheese and chocolate ... and watch Aiden Turner on the telly

On sofa in lovely new wrap (pres from Wonky) full of lobster and raspberry semi-freddo, slightly inebriate and watching Wizard of Oz ........... Merry Christmas everyone
