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

Lovely bowl of sunshine there Gg

have just filled up a camping water container just in case, fire's laid, gas kettle is out of storage, and a few candles around, can't find the wind up torch

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.

No. Garlic is as tough as old boots!

It needs cold to help it develop into the seperate cloves.

The growth will be fine just do the usual - keep it weed free and don't disturb it

Still windy here - like you Nut, never thought of the roof vents - b ut they are automatic and don't have a clue how to change them!

Keep looking at the old oak swaying and wondering if it will survive. 

Also we keep having very heavy showers, and then sun

Trying to buy some stuff on ebay but became very bored!
