Verdun, that is brilliant

There was a young farmer of Leeds,

Who swallowed six packets of seeds,

It soon came to pass

He was covered in grass

And he couldn't sit down for the weeds.

 

Not technically a joke...

True geoff

Thanks Welshonion, but my bed won't have any grass in it whatsoever as the seed mis I'm going to use is 100% cornfield flowers and they are also all annuals, no perennials, so no need to mow.

Or do I need to mow annuals too?! If so, I stand corrected!

 

Stupid weather!

Oh no! That's a shame. fellow nice gardening neighbours are the best and I've only ever had one of them, who is thankkfully still around.

If your new neighbours are nice (in spite of screaming kid), I would try giving the kid some seeds, like sunflowers, as a gift, maybe in a small pot or something - see if you can get them interested - many a screaming child has been pacified by a spot of pottering themselves

Stupid weather!

You have a very nice neighbour, Noob! And you sound like me, itching to get out there and get muddy

Apparently come Monday of next week, we are reaching the heady heigjts of 13 degrees C - brace yourselves and get out the Tshirts.
