Hi everyone.

Nr Lincoln.

Been a glorious autumn day here, sunny and reasonably warm.

Green house cleaning finished and I assisted OH to insulate it this afternoon, when I say assist, I had to get in all the awkward places he can't reach but at least it's done. Now to get everything back, minus the accumulated rubbish.

Hi everyone.

The last few peppers and chillies Greenhouse all clean and ready to be bedded down for the winter. Had a couple of good days in the garden as weather has been lovely. Not so good fore casted for tomorrow so will catch up on indoor jobs.



Just catching up with your posts about pee and compost. I saw that programme last night, didn't know urine could be so interesting, annuals on compost heap, must get OH to "activate" it before tea.

Tea tonight is Chicken Korma a la Loyd Grosman.

Like the idea of C smilies, do you think Daniel will be able to oblige.

Hello to all our new forkers.

Have had to use spell checker a lot tonight, no control over my fingers, must need cake

I bought some paperwhite last weekend after seeing MD planting them for Xmas, I bet the sales of them have shot up as a result.

Beautiful morning here, the box says Sunny/clear, so they are right!

Cosmos and other annuals are going on the compost heap today, and I too have got bulbs to plant, mainly in pots as I have loads in the garden already.

Have a good day whatever you're up to.

Hi everyone.

Lovely morning here in Lincolnshire, we are forecast a rain free day, so hoping to get cosmos and other annuals consigned to compost heap.

Jean- I water all my containers that I want to keep over winter with Pravado vine weevil killer, it kills the vine weevil grubs that are lurking in the soil, and so far I have been lucky.

Geoff, Goose taste very nice, but there isn't a lot of meat on them, they look huge before they are cooked, nice with apple or gooseberry sauce, but very expensive. Never tried wild goose though, be a job to catch I would imagine

Must be the day for haircuts, me and OH have been to see the lovely Claire in the village salon. 

Gammon steak, grilled tomatoes, chips and peas for tea this evening.

When we did our supermarket shop last week I had a look at the bacon grill in tins as was mentioned in previous postings, looked alright, that is until you read the ingredients, which included and I quote, "Mechanically recovered chicken" no thanks..

I have high blood pressure along with other things, my OH on the other hand has normal blood pressure, normal cholesterol, he eats all the things you shouldn't, chips, chocolate, anything sweet, pork pie, the list goes on. I on the other hand have alway been careful what I eat, it's just not fair

Morning folks.

Bright and rather chilly here this morning. Box says light rain but so far so good, stayed dry.

You have certainly had some interesting times Frank

We are having trouble in the cat department. Not with our cat but with one that keeps coming into our kitchen and eating our cats food. Poor old Molly, who is about 15 we think, is too frightened to go out, so we have too keep the cat flap locked and she has to have a litter tray in the conservatory at night. It's a right bind.  But I think Molly must have seen it off a few time as I have found balls of white fur on the floor and Molly is a tortoiseshell There is only me that has actually seen this cat, I saw its tail as it diappeared through the catflap when I disturbed it. Gave me quite a fright.

Nr Lincoln.

Late posting today as I seem to have been really busy.

A mixed bag of weather, some sun, some showers and cloudy at times. About right for 1st October.

Had a very good day on Sunday. The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight gave us a wonderful display at RAF Coningsby.The Lancaster, hurricanes and spitfires flew right over our heads, very low. and the spitfires did a loop the loop display, The noise was terrific. Always brings a tear to my eye when I see them.. The weather was quite good, a bit overcast but dry.

Red Arrows back at RAF Scampton, so I will be seeing them practice from my kitchen window.
