Good shopping Wonks, who needs dresses?

Seeds are up!

I think I might have some penstenomon seeds up indoors, looking very tiny so it might be just the odd weed but.............checked my frame and things are growing. Echium blue bedder and some night scented stock have germinated! Love it.

Only did them 10 days ago, so happy with my new frame, it's doing it's job

Morning everyone. I love the clocks changing sort of maps out the year for me along with marking the solstices. Maybe a little too early, but I think I have my first seeds up! Could be weeds from the mpc but I'm optimistic!

There's some sun and rain here, if it clears up at all, I'll be blood fish and boning the borders. Have a good day everyone

Don't know the details Punkdog,but try and not carry the anger with you too much. It won't be affecting your neighbour, but these emotions can really damage us. Hope it gets sorted soon

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Glad some have been able to do a bit today. After a very enjoyable couple of days, rain has stopped play here Been out to check temp in my cold frame and my cuttings are still standing up right!

I should make a list of jobs that I'm considering so I don't forget them when I get out there again.
