And me, but often feel like that 

Have carried on with winter project. Srabbed myself so lost heart then, but so minor I am sure I will live.

We had to have a cowl (horrible plastic thing) on our chimney to stop rain and birds. The original was an upturned curved roofing edge that looked lovely. Didn't comply with various regulations though

have sunshine now but feels colder ttahn it has.

Avoiding garden to day to let it dry out. I have begun to think about veg for spring, and rotating beds. Seems it doesn't really matter unless you have nasties in the soil 

Lots of seed catalogues to peruse, but priorty is garlic,I want to chage variety but not sure what. we like it with a bit of punch!

Any damage?

Just a waterlogged lawn here, strangely the wind has not even pulled that many stcks and rotten branches from the oak, which it usually does.

Hope everyone's clean up goes OK, thinking of you

Have to report a very water-logged lawn but no damage, thank goodness.

I hope those of you who have some soon get sorted.

Trilliums always look lovely but I thought they were hard to grow.keep going.

Raised Veg beds design & construction

Rather than ply use scaffold boards - stronger. You can then clad them or just paint them in a pleasant colour

You should be able to grow plenty of veg and get the crop rotation going with 3 beds.

Not very good on what to grow veg wise, but I am sure others on here will help

All of you stay safe and dry

Just ran out as I realised pink wheelbarrow wasn't in a safe place. Is now on top of the wood pile under cover. 

Really don't want that damaged

Getting windier I think, but has been getting stronger all day.

what utter confusion!
