Anyone planted out their sweet pea seedlings?

Mine were planted out at the weekend - they've been in an open cold-frame for weeks now, tough as old boots.

Hello folks  back from visiting Aged Ps - both fine, frail but happy - Ma talking bunkum but happy bunkum so can't complain.  I feel completely bushed - I suppose it was  a busy weekend and visiting APs always tires me  - OH had remains of yesterdays Kelftiko for supper and I've just had a black pudding scotch egg, some coleslaw and a gherkin - now I just want to doze 

But not before I've said Welcome Back Potty!!!

Doc - will keep fingers crossed for you!!!  How fantastic.  

My son used to work as a sound engineer/roadie so has 'done' Glasto several times - and been paid for it!!! But it was jolly hard work and hardly any sleep - almost as soon as the late performances had finished it was nearly time to start setting up for the next day!  Still an experience to remember.

And although he was there in some bad weather, he always says that the mud wasn't that bad - the press made the most of it as usual - muddy girls sell newspapers - apparently

Have you kept a record of the costs?  The lights and power involved, and heating as well as compost etc - I'd be really interested in how much it actually costs to produce a tomato
