Just reading through here, Philippa, I didnt see before that you wanted the cabbage seeds, is it too late now, I looked through my pm's and didnt see your address. You can sow these in the Summer for Autumn plant out. They were a fantastic crop, started in March with picking as Spring greens then right through the summer. I have loads in the freezer too.

If you still want them you are most welcome.

christmas has come for me too.

That would be lovely Hosta, but it cost a lot of money to run a live chat room, and it has to have a mod in there, very open to trolls. We had one on a site we used to be on, St Pixels, online church, sadly gone but nice at the time, its on facebook only now.

Thoughts and prayers with everyone having a tough time battling with hospitals and coping with aged parents, its so sad they have to end up helpless like this. So sad.

I had a cat once, Jeoffrey, whonhad cancer on his nose, he kept getting scabs and by chance, they covered it on a Vets prog on TV. I took him in and the vet laser zapped it, it had to be done twice but eventually cleared completely. Vet said as his nose was white that if would be a  good idea to keep suncream on it rubbed in well, when he went out, easier said than done!

I am fortunate enough to live in the middle of nowhere, so no other cats, when I plant anything small, I make box type shapes from chicken wire to put over. Once they grow and theres no bare earth, i can just remove them.

Meant to say befor, Swiss Sue your doggy is adorable, beautiful ears.

I thought they were slug/snail resistant. Mine last year has littles holds in the leaves, I think they were leaf beetle, very shiny green things.
