Its a bit like the friday night fantasy.... if I win the lottery, this is the house and land I will buy. Its a cheap dream for the price of  a lottery ticket.

Old school report.... "would do better if  she concentrated in lessons, instead of staring out of the window and daydreaming."

Funny thing is, a lot of those daydreams have come true.

In the words of the song... if you never have a dream, how will you ever have a dream come true?

I currently have a huge stash of plant porn. I'm trying to resist, but I find circling things with a highlighter pen curiously satisfying.

I hope wonky is feeling better this morning.

I woke up cold. Ive put the heating on early. No hubby to pinch heat from, he's away all week.

I must make an appointment for a dentist. Trouble is my good one died, and his replacement was dire. I spent two hours in the chair for a root canal filling, screamed the place down when he found a nerve he hadnt numbed, and came out with tears running down my face, to find a full waiting room staring at me in horror. I then got an abscess that kicked off while I was away in Australia. I ended up trawling the pharmacies for the strongest pain killers I could buy. Surprisingly, I haven't been back.

Last plot help please

Liz, don't worry about how many threads you start, or how many times you ask for help. We all try to help beginners as much as we can. We were all beginners once.

I grew Kelsae the year I couldn't get mammoth. I didnt think that they kept well.

I prefer Robinsons mammoth and red mammoth, which I sowed today.

Bedfordshire champion produce small bulbs which keep well.

I wasn't keen on red baron, I grew last year because I couldn't get red mammoth.
