OH still in Belfast as far as I know. There is lots of snow there I believe.

No snow here. 5C and drizzle.  The gritters are out.

I went shopping. One till out of 4 on, plus the DIY tills.  I stood behind 6 people  at the manned till. gave up and tried DIY. Till would not play with my bags. At the third attempt to scan something, I threw it back in the trolley and went and joined the till queue again. I made loud voice about needing more tills on. Eventually another till was opened. A woman with only a couple of packets of carrots beat me to it.  We then had a pantomime involving one packet being refunded, then both being scanned together to get the two for £3 price. It took ages. By the time I eventually got served, I was fuming. Thank you for waiting says the poor girl on the checkout. Not your fault, I said, but if there is a manger about I would like to rip his head off. YOU NEED MORE TILLS ON AT LUNCHTIME.   GRRR.

ID please

Woken by traffic noise at 6.30.

There has been a bad accident and car fire on the A52 between Derby and the M1. The A52 is closed. Guess whose house the diversion is going past?  The whole area seems to be at Gridlock and the kiddiwinks haven't set off for school yet. I wish the idiot with the boombox would turn it down. I can hear it in the back bedroom through the double glazing. I dread to think what it sounds like in his car.

Splitting up plot for crop rotation - what to plant?

Posted: 11/01/2017 at 21:10

Do not grow potatoes in the same bed for more than one year in a row.

for three separate crops, use beans and peas (and sweet peas for cutting ) in bed 1

cabbage family in bed two (includes swede and turnip with brassicas)

roots such as carrots, parsnips radishes, and  lettuce,in bed 3

The following year, rotate  . Brassicas usually follow bean family

Clarington. Time for some time in bed being pampered by OH.  If the schools have to cancel, tough. With the weather coming in, they will probably cancel anyway.

Hubby is finishing work in Belfast tomorrow evening, driving to Dublin for the midnight ferry, then planning on driving through the night from Holyhead. I am telling him to book into the first Premier Inn.  With the weather forecast, I  hate to think of him driving through the night after a rough ferry crossing.
