Thanks Gary. 

They look sweet by the log burner for now. 

If it ever stops raining for an afternoon I will sort out large storage thing - we call it a shed but it isn't and put the wheelbarrow in it, handy to get out then.

Not sure why they are solar powered. Think they light up

Will have to wait till spring/summer to find out as, like my wheelbarrow they can stay clean/dry till then.

IF they ever come

Hi again - bit disappointed that only Flo commented on my Chucks we had for Christmas, still it caused some mirth

Here are my 2 chucks

 They are solar powered!! Had to keep label on them for instructions.

Anyone know how to change date on a camera, it seems to be 2 days behind?

Oh wonderful. Roll on a hot summer, but just enough rain to help the plants! not enough to grow slugs, white fly, blight etc

Hey Artjak - Santa brought me a bright pink wheelbarrow

Today, as ever it is throwing it down.

In a dry spot yesterday nipped out and planted some strawberries and gooseberries, rescued a rhubarb root but still unplanted and as the rain started heeled in some raspberries. I have no idea where I am going to plant them

Morning All

We use our left-overs as well, why buy food when there is still plenty left.

Perhaps its the gardeners thrift in us, or maybe.....

We had 2 chucks for Christmas, they are a coppery brown colour 

Not doing sales at moment but maybe later in month as we need towells, not very exciting. 

I have now got to start planning the ancient parents 90th birthday celebration, I am hopin there will be some large joints of gammon reduced when I hit the shops tomorrow

Raining here AGAIN Pleased I managed to get those plants in yesterday. Still have no idea where to put the raspberries!
