Topbird - not a Hammond is it?
OHs coq au vin was stupendous - a huge step up for him cookery-wise but the result is great and plenty left for tomorrow.

Definitely improving thanks Glenys, OH is cooking coq au vin and it smells wonderful - it's the first thing I've been able to smell in weeks
That's good to know Terry Obviously you have space in the conservatory to grow them on a bit before planting out - what size are they when you plant them in the tunnels?
Where abouts in the UK are you? Is your plot nicely sheltered and which way does it face?
Daisy - hope you're having a lovely birthday
Fairy We had a slight frost and sleet earlier, now it's just cold and damp.
There are still loads of blackbirds out there, and a pair of Gt Tits who appear to be prospecting for a new home.

Both unfortunately BL, but I think I'll recover
Hi Navas - can you reduce the size of the picture please - then hopefully it will upload. Start attaching it by clicking on the camera icon
BL - looks like we're both at the same stage
Good to see you Hosta
I've just counted at least 12 blackbirds in our back garden! They're tucking into the porridge oats, chopped apples and vine fruits I put out.

One of the marantas, sometimes known as prayer plants. They need moist but well drained compost, high humidity and filtered light. keep in an even temperature - not hot and definitely not cold. They're also quite hungry and need regular repotting. You'll find lots of info online if you google 'maranta'.
