Thank you both.

New potatoees for Christmas dinner  Never managed it before.

My nails never grow that long. Always getting broken in the garden, even with gloves.

Rose Lady

I have just had a ground cover rose 'Worcestershire' The plan is to put it in an old chimney pot so that it sprays out, The bottom is set in the ground, not sealed and I would line it with an old compost bag. Any idea if this will work?

2 crates full. We have to re-cycle ourselves NB coffee jars, soy sauce, bottles as well as the usual suspects

Just come in from tidying. Any one know if I leave my potatoes in their bag or dig them out?

What's the weather like in your area?

Lovely day after the dark grey of the last week.

Will attempt to plant some roses that have come, one the ground is still too waterlogged and one I forgot to buy the compost for, but a garden day

Also a wrap up warm day.

Morning all

Just  been out to tip: bottles, cardboard (where does it come from) rotten hanging baskets, large bag of wood shavings from log cutting. Then to a low price shop for their horse manure mix (4 bags) and some more bonemeal.

If sun stays bright may plant couple of roses, but one will have to be heeled in and one planned to put in a chimney pot but just realised I forgot the John Innes N0 2, so will have to heel that one as well.

Then will do some more tidying as some plants seem very slow at dying back. 

Get well soon Becks and Jess

The way these dolls are going scarecrows probably count

Haven't made a doll for years, but new grand daughter well. Then daughter came along (25) said I want one you never made me one, so making the  2 - I think daughter will get 'ET'. Can't go frightening my little baby can I?

Wow Inka that looks really good. I am so impressed. Tick v. good. 

Stuffing dolls at moment. One I've just done looks like ET. Found that one of those honey swirler things is really good for stuffing legs!
