Perennial rudbeckias left in the ground overwinter have been decimated by slugs. I dug the remains up, potted and moved into TLC area.

 Cherry brandy and cherokee sunset I treat like annual bedding. Space at least a foot apart.

I spent today moving staging out of greenhouse, staking tomatoes which had got to the floppy  stage, and found four roscoeas coming up in a pot. Then I found the roscoea seeds i sowed last year have started to germinate. Little broad leaves all over the tray.

I've also killed a lot of big fat black slugs and stamped on a lot of snails.

HELLO FORKERS!

It seems to have brightened up. Mrs Mallard hasn't been for breakfast. I dont know what shes doing up in Scotland.

I stocked up on dog food at the supermarket. Right load of cheeky fox  cubs this year, I'm expecting them to start knocking on the back door for dinner.

 I've been doing sudoko in front of the fire. I suppose I should turn it off and go and  do something, like water the plants in the greenhouse. I think some of the later flowering stuff like rudbeckias will have to go in larger pots, to slot in when the oriental poppies get cut down.
