Morning. Well you have all been up bright and early.

Becks I had a tomato pair and am now on sunflowers. Excepy for deep digging, which I can't do now. I wer them for nearly all gardening, washing out et. 'Crocs' have holes so don't really keep feet dry.

I thought you might get some for the end of December!! 

Foggy and damp. was going to pot wash but may just potter in newly cleared out GH

They do what they say on the 'tin' I call them my outside slippers. Sorry don't know how to post the link. They are SO useful.

Cake looks lovely.

Cleared greenhouse, made room for new staging - £12 from end of last day at Malvern Show complete with seed trays. Pot washing tomorrow is it a squeeze of washing up liquid and a splash of Jeyes Fluid?

Emptied grow bags onto rhubarb bed.

Had bath to ease aches and pains, 

Just made some scones for a sort of cobbler type pud. Cooked apple/raspberries with cooked scones on top.

What's for tea?

It's treat day today:

Steak mix of sirloin and rump(butcher didn't have enough rump for 2), stir fried cabbage with red onion and garlic (OH speciality) and OH is having saute potatoes and I am having thin frozen chips. Followed by stewed apple and raspberry ( home grown) with scones as a cobbler type thing. Just made the scones. Washed down with a nice red plonk.

if you know where they are going, ground prepared, as soil is still warm enough plant now. You could bury pots in ground to insulate them till spring  if you are not ready for them. Put a good mulch on and remember to plant clematis about 3 inches or so deeper than it is in pot.
