Hello - I did not manage to get into the garden much today fed the birds and had a look around and trying to figure out making my cold frame went to Wickes and got a fir bin and some wood

Going to see Woodgreen Wonderboy tomorrow and give him the little house for his grass round about as I have finished it

Cook it - peel the skin, chop up remove middle slime seeds - cut in half then half again long ways into small long bits then into pieces sideways cook in a pain with melted butter until golden brown - taste really nice

Hello all,

Yesterday was a busy day volunteering picking up litter around the park for Sholing valley Study Centre and after lunch went to the station to do some turf laying

As when we were buying turf the other day from Hillier's we noticed turf in the skip obviously left from last delivery and not so good to sell - as we asked we were allowed two rolls as they were for a charity garden rather yellow grass but still good for station - even though one person not so keen on us having it even though they are just getting rid of it

Ginagibbs Like that they do a notice board for tips for the month looks good - does not enlarge so can't read them

Your tool shed looks so neat well organised and dogs look like they are enjoying the shed, looks like you are doing well on the plot keeping it looking full of veg and with some nice flowers

I see you got your bark chipping down   

good having a quiet plot so you could get on with what you needed
