We are easily pleased arent we? I have beans, cabbage, red peppers and parsley cubes in the freezer, dried chives, basil, parsley and sage, and leeks, a few carrots and turnips in the garden. I havent had time to prepare the ground for planting but will get it done ready for the Spring.

Seems they are not slug/snail resistant then,

I see that Hayloft have their offer of 10 for 10 pounds again, mine came from there a couple of years ago, I dont often buy any plants but tempted with this offer and a 10% discount on this site.

We name everything too, I had Bonnie and Clyde, a pair of Light Sussex.

A cockerel call Gregory (peck)

My cats have been,..Tammy, George, Penny, Jeoffrey, Pippa, Pru, whiskey, Shandy, Lucy, Rosie, Tigger, and now, Thomas.

Our pheasants we just call Mr and Mrs P. If that fox takes up permanent residence I will have to name him.

Claire, I read that you were a vet, I didnt think you were being rude at all, no worries

The things you make are really good GG, love to see the coldframe when you have finished it.

Those new pallets are very posh, are they the ones for the cold frame?

Looking forward to seeing the Station when the bulbs are up

Lovely cakes Marion, I have finished mine now, marzipan and icing. I have now taken a piece of paper and pen to bed so I can jot things down when I wake up, must write note to finish mulching dahlias in case of frost, our weather is much like yours I think Marion, what we call 'hanging) just damp, mild and mucky.
