Trellis planter help needed please!

Posted: 23/01/2015 at 09:10

Lovely, a blank canvas. Dont wait forvSpring, you will want to plant up tgen.

Spend this time marking out where you want your flower beds, shear off the turf and dig the ground over, the best thing for clumps of earth is frost, so do it now. Then when you can chop it down nice and fine, add loads of compost manure or whatever you can get, the sprinke chicken pellets over the area, 

All nice and prepared then for your plants, which you can star to think about in your spare time!!!

My first greenhouse

50!!! You poor old wotsit! I did know that,   I know when it is too. (I think)

The one we grow tomatoes in is raised up on breeze blocks for exrta height, but there is a step inside so not a big drop,   one is just on patio slabs the other is on a single breeze block and has a concrete infill. All been here for 25 years so thats a safe way to do it. I havent a clue what make they are, they are all different but all have the frames that you can fix the bubble insulation too.

Will they buy it now or wait until your birthday, you need it for the Spring,

Certain age eh!!! would that be 30? Most people on here are only 27, 

Congrats on getting a greenhouse. Whatever you choose you will love it, dont forget to get a chair in there and leave a space for mug of tea.

Would you pay more for a pint of Milk ?

Sorry to hear that Dove, must have been upsetting for her when she wanted to work.

I wonder if there is not some sort of a comeback on those contracts if they are not offered work?.


the great advert take over bid

My android has been just the same, split picture, dark grey screen, couldnt turn off just frozen, the adverts were nothing to do with the site they were gone by 1am I dont think the techi team mended it. Just something invading our pads. Unless someone was hacking the site but I think that unlikely.

When I first had my tablet I asked our computer fixer if I need extra security, he said no at the time because it was diificult for anyone to break into mobile devices, he has changed his mind now.

And how is one supposed to take out a mortgage or even plan a monthly budget under those conditions?

The same as if they were on the dole or claiming benefits I suppose.

With regard to 12 hours a day shifts, then time off, isnt that what nurses do?

When we were grave digging we did exactly that, we could be flat out 7 days a week, digging on a Sunday as well, because next week there may not be one. Teaches you to budget. Dont spend a good weeks wages in one week, save some for next week.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Thank you for all your kind words. I feel a total fraud now though.

Mum was so scared about this mornings events and asked me what can we do.

I said to her to try and drink more to flush it out, she drunk 1·5 lts  of water in one  go, and kept walking up and down the hall.

The tube was blocked with 'debris' kept flushing and walking on and off all day, phoned the nurse who said it couldn't be the cancer flaring up so quickly, she thinks mum must have pulled the catheter out a bit in the night and thats what caused the bleeding, and we were doing the right thing. Anyway, eventually the bits came through the tube and by tonight its as clear as crystal!

I have fixed it tonight so she cant pull it in her sleep

The nurse has stuck a post it note on the doctors computer screen for him to ring me.

I felt so sorry for her though,  she was so scared and trying to walk was making her absolutely breathless, but she was determined to do it, and she did!

What a day its been, never mind, it all seems ok for another day, I just hope I can cope when the time comes. I am sure I will.

Thank you all so much for your support, life is a bit of a yo yo now. Xx
