Thanks Jo. All those thoughts had happened. Spare is one of these things that isn't quite a spare. Am having tyre replaced, but did think front 2, but pennies are tight as well!. Will keepcareful eye on them all.

My sweet peas have germinated, noticed to day - quite pleased as saved seed from a lovely deep purple one that grew. I know may not come true but try anything once.

I also saved some seeds from some basket sweet peas.No sign of germination ther. If any don't come have some freebie packets to sow in spring

Garage just phoned. We have a 2 year old car, just about 12000 on the clock yet they say one of front tyre treads is very low and tyre needs replacing. Seems odd but we now nothing about cars. He said something must cause the excessive wear on that side! OH says it's me Ha Ha. Any one out there know what could cause the wear?

Rhubarb just arrived I guess needs to be planted immediately. One root is a lot bigger than other and splitting the pack with a neighbour - we are all making new gardens here - now do I give her the big one or the smaller one?? Hope it will be ok in garage till tomorrow when I should be allowed out.

i keep thinking i got my begonias in far too early, will leave them out till October next year

What's the weather like in your area?

Thanks Dean. I have one Ruby Ball growing but was the only one that has grown to matury. Very old seed. So thought I'd try something else. From your picture it doesn't look too big, just what I want.

Glass of something is good after a long hard day. and to watch some total rubbish on TV, stuff you don't have to think about

Have decided I need to get another seed box/tin/ something and keep flowers and veg seeds seperate. May cause less chaos at sowing time. Anyone know a decent, not enormous variety of red cabbage?

OH at local pub tonight taking the monthly quiz. I have no idea what the questiions are  I
