Yes , back to Christmas , I have just thought what I could have for Christmas 

 A battery strimmer

It could help in cutting the grass around the edge of my allottment and the beck bank on side of garden 

my good lady is going to make some mince pies this week because she is going to an early Christmas Do on Thursday

I like Stolen , got mini ones last year from Lidl , they where great with a cup of coffee or glass of sherry , a much under rated drink in my opinion

Mince pies , I agree you need to start buying them now or even making them now so you can properly test them and the only way to test them is eat them

Market Research is what it is called 

Merry Christmas

Hello everybody , I have just been given a pot of Parsley which I have put in the greenhouse , any tips on keeping it going over the winter ? Or should I bring it inside ?

Sweeping leaves up , have you though about a Garden vac to suck up the leaves ?

much quicker , give you more time for other jobs , only advise is if you suck them over bare soil it sucks up the loose soil and clogged it up , well the one I had did

best of luck with the Gardening
