Phew daughter arrived home safely(her home). Water had dropped a little. She'll have to break out wellies tomorrow though.

2 films in one day - very unusual for me. Now one - which I have seen before - original Jaws. Not seen it for ages though.

Geoff it was the original black and white. Had seen the modern one but found this one far more convincing - I now believe in Father Christmas

Food's up. Catch you all later

Yes. Tried last year but didn't have a greenhouse until too late to do anything much.

Usually grow potatoes in bags in summer so am used to the concept.

Can't wait to weigh them now

Placed amazon order then realised forgotten something, when you go back can only delete items not add more - means more postage.

Going to watch original 'Miracle on 34th Street' now. Can't remember seeing this version!

Hi there

Told you all I'd give an update. Still not harvested potatoes but thought I had better check progress so put hand in a bag to check and pulled out a lovely sized Charlotte poatato. No sign of blight still. Only a few weeks to go so am now really hopeful

What's for tea?

Salmon, Curly kale, broccoli and spuds tonite followed by stewed apple, not compost today - not enough fruit variety for that

Daughter just phoned to say they are away but have been told they can't get back into town they live in. Can they come here for night if its that bad. A friend of hers in one of cut off villages has gone into labour she says. Bed's all ready! But they are assuming they can reach us.

Fortunately they live in a flat above a shop (nothing can get wet!)

Just ordered 1st Chrissie pressies from Amazon

Plant Identification help please

I thnk the first one is celandine. If you dig it up you will find small nodules thta break off to make more plants. The leaves are just beginnig to appear now in my garden. I have tried mulching, digging, poisoning!, absolutely no joy to get rid of it. Alan T says almost impossible to remove, Did an article probably in GW about worst weeds to get rid of. Article may ahve been last year not this.
