I'm at work today, just been in the unit next door which is a florists wholesaler. I go past every day but have never asked prices of stuff as I thought you had to be trade to purchase. Good news is you dont and I can get lots of different potted plants very cheaply (more than half the cost than in the shops or GC's) happy days! 

KEF, I will take the aubergines back home to put in my glass greenhouse, I think it is warmer than the polytunnel, and see how they get on. My peppers are small too so will do the same.

Zoomer, its interesting to see how plots vary even on the same site, some people on my allotment are way behind, others seem to be in advance.  My toms are almost ready to plant out but my aubergines are minute! 

Went up last night in that foul weather (had to walk the dogs anyway) to make sure nothing had been blown over in the wind. Garden furniture was strewn around the lawn this morning

Keep up the good work GG,  this time next year you can look back and pat yourself on the back, as I am sure it will look amazing.

Had a lovely afternoon at the plot yesterday, the sun came out and it was quite hot. Got some more beetroots and turnips seeds in between the rows of sweetcorn .Dug up half my garlic as they were ready and I need the space. Potatoes are just starting to come into flower now. 

tempted to leave a plate, some cutlery in my shed so I can have a salad there for lunch

. Made a nice veg soup for supper with home grown stuff yum

Would love my own chooks but not enough space. I feed next doors chickens all my veg scraps, and slugs and snails. They start chatting when they see me come!

Blimey Fruitcake, you are lucky, my broad beans are flowering but no beans yet. Strawberries are just starting to happen and I'm in the south with a very  sunny site! Radishes have been fantastic so far and the turnips are coming through nicely. Had to harvest a few onions as they were starting to go to seed, not sure if my garlic has come to much, they are going over now but they are a bit on the small side

Didnt get to the plot last night as I am dog sitting (that means taking 3 for a walk!!) so spent the evening in the garden instead. Started to rain today so at least I wont have to worry about watering later. Have a good day everyone
