Good evening everybody , snow drops just starting to come up and a few other bulbs but it the Frosts are hear , which stop things , still no snow , clear blue sky's again 

Grass could do with cut ? Heared somebody today using lawn mower ? To wet in my opinion 

What new seeds will you be trying this year?

Hello , no snow drops out yet hear 

Often thought about doing the Great Birdwatch as I get a few different birds visitng the garden , the feeders being under a Hawthorn tree , so they have protection from the Sparrow Hawkes we get 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Good morning all , clear blue sky's just had breakfast , I am sure it will be mighty cold out there , can't see any frost on grass 

Yesterday was horrendous , lit a fire in afternoon and stayed in 

Got to go into Lincoln this afternoon to sort out Coop Bk and mobile phones , nothing is simple these days , then as a treat will go to a Jazz club in Lincoln University called Zing at 5-00 for some live music , a bit hit and miss some good , some not so 

Hope you all have a good day and for those not retired it is soon the weekend , unless of course you are working

Rosemummy , I always found a few hours in garden or allotment  made me feel better 

This is great site for practical help and advise , always found it useful , you could see if the Libary had any books on allotments ?

On our site there a couple of young families and the kids have there own little section , best of luck 

Zoomer , yes definately leeks grow , I did celrica last year and it didn't grow that big 

Got some chicory in but seems complicated to grow it 

might try forcing some Rhubard for the first time 

clear blue sky's and sunny but mighty cold , need to go into Lincoln this afternoon , tomorow football , hopefully up the plot on Sunday 

Have a good day everybody
