My rhubarb is planted next to a compost heap at the allotment, this year it was massive. I did notice it was expensive in the shops and it did get plenty of water this year

I managed to get caught up in a cobweb and was amazed at how strong it was, beautiful pictures. Sunny here today but think we will have rain again tomorrow, always rains on days i go swimming. A while after getting caught in cobweb i could feel something tickling round my neck this went on for half an hour i then found the spider, gave me the creeps. Managed to catch it and its now safely back outside

Can i come out of the naughty corner yet, promise i wont mention christmas again Oops. Have been to see some tropical butterflies today, they were beautiful. Must have thought i was a flower as they kept landing on me. Did the man jump? i missed the news last night as i was slaving away over a hot stove. Ended up having lunch in Sainsburys at Chichester as we didnt like the look of the food at butterfly place. I always end up in the naughty corner whatever i do or wherever i go, is it something i am doing wrong do you think??????

My husband loves chillies and i cant stand them and im the one that grows them. I sowed a packet of Tropical mix and had quite a mixture. They are slowly ripening in the greenhouse but didnt have enough for him to make his chilli sauce so had to but more from the local asian shop. Known locally as Apoos after the simpsons cartoons, you are licky it anything is the right date

Allowed to use the laptop today, home alone.Have been into town and it poured with rain and guess what no waterproofs or brolly .Got a bit more christmas shopping done and even ordered the meat for xmas dinner. Off out tomorrow with the mother, going to butterfly farm near Chichester, not sure there will be many butterflies this time of year but there are lots of birds and animals and a cafe so i wont go hungry. Wouldnt it be nice to live in the sun im sure we wouldnt get so many aches and pains,my hands are really bad today.Hope everyone is ok

I agree that the judges making the final descision on scd will be a good thing. Not sure what i think of Jerry Hall time will tell. I just wish Anton could have a decent partner for once. We didnt get enough apples this year to do much with and if im honest they were a bit dry. Put them in a crumble so that didnt matter too much. Will get to allotment this week to dig up my 1 parsnip that has grown, dont think there will be enough to make any wine so it will go in the roasting tin.
