Oh goody Geoff.

I shall happily use same ground now! I also seem to remember recently reading that about beans, probably in a garden mag. J.

Hi all.

OH & me had a pleasant shop first thing. I cant get my head around how this supermarket can be soo quiet on a Saturday! Has a good stock & loads of room between isles, bliss.

Am employee had much amusement at my expense this morning. OH, of course, had wandered off, in search of light bulbs. I'm standing in front of the bread rolls muttering to self about what someone is likely to need? 'You do know that you're talking to yourself?' says man loading up bread shelves. 'Yes' I replied 'at least I get an answer, if not always sensible!' Both now sniggering!! OH then reappears looking puzzled & asks 'what's funny?' which sets us 2 off even more.......

The 'b' slimey brigade have eaten every one of my sweetpea seedlings so will try again in Spring, as usual!

Now to check out Geoffs & Becks quiz. J.

Jo 4eyes here- have discovered this morning that all of my autumn sown seedlings have been eaten by the slimey brigade whilst in a coldframe!

Oh well, early Spring sowing on the 'to do' list! J.

What's the weather like in your area?

Dull today, barely no wind.

Was just below feezing, in the back garden at first light today. Now a very balmy (!) 6-7C out there.

Fed the birds & squirrels! Discovered that my autumn sown sweetpea seedlings have been eaten whilst in the coldframe! J.

OMG you lot!!

BTW he's got his own set! Tins that is!

I know that I've not yet sorted my avatar out, depends on how obliging daughter feels over the w/end........ not forgotten though, but by the time it gets done will be spring & OOD!

Have packed in doing the letters for today, only 3 more to do! I decided against a 'round-robin' type this year as cant remember who knew what. Trouble is doing more individual takes for ever!!

Oh heck cant think anymore, night all. J.
