Morning All

Yes Geoff, Jaws music, that's what made it, so he decided to prove the point.!

David Austin Roses came today. Says in little book that came with them unless frozen (end of week) or excessively wet(now) do not plant. HA Ha!

There is one I am putting in a chimney pot so that will be OK but the others I will have to heel in. Jo said my raised veg bed should be OK.

No rain at moment Hurray

Hangovers. I always gave my son a drink of sweet tea. Raises the blood sugar level , alcohol lowers it. Used to work

OH was asked today if we live in Nobs Alley. We do, but grand it isn't. The road just has a strange history, and locals called it that and the name has stuck with the older ones. Was built about 1953, so not even that old.but has been ineresting finding out about it.

Question though about the roses, when I plant them in final place , at this time of year, do I still put in Bonemeal?

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
