Good morning all    G'day Pat and any others looking in from the Antipodes 

I think the rest of the country has rain but it's dry here if a bit overcast. 

Hope the wakeful got some sleep eventually.

Sweet dreams all 

My Cilantro seedlings have weird white marks on them.

You could

a)  thin them out by removing some of them

b) prick them out into pots of compost each containing just a few seedlings 

c) start again

This may be of some help

Make a day of it ... provide pizza and coffee at regular intervals and explain that your role is purely to supervise and provide refreshment ... after all someone has to be fit enough to drive the others to the hospital or the pub ... whichever is needed first 

Good luck!

Six plump sweet line-caught herring fresh off the boat for £3 ... fifty pence each ... what a complete bargain

Nasty accident Obelixx ... glad they're ok although they must be somewhat unnerved by that.  

I love lambs' kidneys ... but we had plump and sweet Silver Darlings in oatmeal on toasted sourdough with a green salad for our supper so we're happy

Hello folks .... the things that  go on here when my back's turned 

I had a lovely visit with my son ... he's living in such a rural spot now ... soooooo peaceful .... his cat (house cat never goes out) sits on the windowsills and watches wild rabbits on the lawn. 

 I went on to Southwold and put a poppy cross on the war memorial for Pa's younger brother ... I promised him I would do that when I could.  Then I went down to the harbour and bought some lovely freshly caught herrings and watched the lifeboat tow a fishing boat in as its engine had packed up.  It was glorious down by the harbour ... 

It was a very high Spring tide and I caught it almost at it's fullest 

You can see the tide coming in against the river flowing to the harbour mouth.

Looking up river and across to Walberswick. 

Planting bulbs for indoors

i would grow white hyacinths there. You're a little late to buy the prepared bulbs which are especially for growing indoors, but you may still find some. 

My onion bulb sets are not growing

This is a UK based forum and your seasons are quite different from ours. I suggest you seek advice from other growers or gardening clubs in your area. 

Good luck
