"See a pin and pick it up and all the day you,ll have good luck,

see a pin and let it lie and you,ll have bad luck all the day."

No idea where this came from,Gran always said it also,if we asked what was for tea,she would say "duck and rounders"

Can,t agree Staffsmags,I was sorry it was only on for four nights. Some of the presenting was a bit silly,but this was easily cancelled out by the  photography and the general content,

Lovely to have something that is not a soap or a fly on the wall type documentary,,,,,more please.

Planting in heavy clay soil

On heavy clay as well.I put in rhubarb for the first time about four years ago,it was planted in January,after several hard frosts had made the soil more managable.As Dove said I did dig in some grit to loosen the soil further.

Small crop in year two,much better this year.
