My phone has never been the same since I dropped it in the bath.

It works sometimes but not at others, and I always miss the important call or the battery goes flat suddenly. I guess its time to get a new phone.

Am I up to braving the salesman at carphone warehouse?

Not today though, today is sunny and I have more apples to pick.

Have a good day forkers.

Sweet Pea seedlings

If you have no cold frame, wait until march and then sow outside. They will soon catch up overwintered ones.  They will be better than those if they survive the winter.

 Weak spindly growth like that will succumb to fungal disease easily.

Also I grew Kale for the first time. Seaweed kale and cavolo nero. Netted they produced lots of leaves for cooking, and no waste- I just picked what we needed for one meal at a time.

Bulb Confusion

Narcissus are making their roots now. They will flower better , the sooner they are in.

But.... I have planted as late as January (some cheap bargain) and they flower, but a bit later.

Tulips are  traditionally planted in November, but if you have them now, plant them now, its miserable planting in grotty weather.
