Now ive just ordered ice cream, a cappucino and a tia maria. The shorts that were a bit loose three weeks ago are  bit tight.   Still, I have gardening to do in March, that should shift a pound or two.

About 20 Lion fish removed from the reef. Currently marinating, and will be served with rum punch later.

Ive just sent back lunch. The pile of melted cheese in a doughy wrap was not a quesadilla wirh salad, guacamole and sour cream , as described. Totally inedible was a polite term for it.

I move mine after they have died down, but I dont let them dry out before replanting.

Looks a bit choppy today. We are going Lion fish hunting. Lion fish are not native to the Caribbean, but aquarium owners released them in Florida and they have spread. There is no predator here to take them out, so they are decimating the usual reef fish. So Thursday is lionfish barbecue day. Careful cutting off of the poisonous dorsal spines and filleting produces a white fish that is very nice steamed  in foil parcels or barbecued. See you later folks.

I used a load of glass gu pots for tea light holders for my wedding. The rest of the year, they are slug pubs, dotted around the garden.

What exactly does a 'sterile' plant mean ?

I have a plant growing in an awkward crack next to paving, that I assume is a seedling from the bowles mauve that was planted there. The flowers are yellow and pink rough stripes. I will try to get cuttings off of it. There is no chance of moving it.

Is February an ok month for planting bargains from local nursery?

If they are growing plants in pots, they will be OK to pop out of pots and plant the whole thing in the ground. If they are still just dried up bulbs with no growth, I would give them a miss.
