Another one here with horizontal Sprouting Broccoli. Should have tied them in and not just stuck canes amongst them

MrsG part of the felt blown off the shed. Now covered with slates held down by rocks. That will teach us to put off doing jobs. Hope your tree survives.

Wooden greenhouse has "moved" so side window no longer closed properly I went in and then couldn't get door shut, so H and brute force needed to lean on doorframe. It's creaking & cracking and I'm worried. 

Not good in Dove country, I might lose a GH but we won't flood.

I have written less Christmas cards this morning than number of times I've been out to retrieve wheelie bins.

Think I'm going to turn the music up loud.

Dove, never mind your hat, think it better you stay away from the seafront, don't want you blowing over and more knee pain.  Hope all is okay with AP's.

Good Morning all. Veeeery windy here.

Hope all manage to stay on their feet.

Clarington, I think the problem, even for some with plenty of garden space is lack of knowledge / confidence to have a go, and a lot of "I'm not a gardener'.

As one that ate fresh veg nearly everyday until I was 18 ( then I had a flat for 18months and lived on baked beans and spent my wages on fun ) I can't imagine not eating fresh veg, even if some isn't from my garden. I think maybe we now have generations that just don't know how to prepare, cook or enjoy vegetables.

I doubt we'll go back to dig for victory, but I think many are trying due to necessity and health.

I'd love it if one of my neighbours could grow things I don't have room for and I'd swap for my surplus. No use asking as one grows and feeds his young family, we do swap extra veg plants, and otherside are spreading pebbles where there isn't grass.

Good new thread.

I've got an advert for Triumph lingerie, should be for thermals me thinks.

Nothing in garden today but no more hospital eye visits for M for 3 months  and had a fun hour and half in local Co-op.

Sausages, veg & Yorkshire puds tonight..could eat them now.

Just been into garage and I'm dithering, the wind is bitterly cold.

Think tonight is Adam's farm & Tudor prog' so will be snuggling up on sofa.
