When I first read the title of this thread. I said to myself. Mike. Michael old mate steer clear. Taking on board that I have quite enough physical an other problems of my own. Then being the nosey b****r that I am, I read on. So, Wow! this is one that I haven't come across before. Yes horticulture is one of the loves of my life. During my employed years. I would at xmas time gather all my thoughts, observations of the past growing year together. Then I might spend hours, sketching out and planning. To me this was simply my time, my devotion as a professional. Never did I realise that there were others on this planet, who were so totally absessed with 'seeds'. At least folks. You might have waited until you had sown and enjoyed the flowers etc. But, 'Seeds'? I ask you. Please don't take me seriously. Not boasting, but I often say to my kids. Please don't buy me presents. Yes I love them, but. In all honesty. I find it so hard to express my feelings. In short. It seems to me that most of the forum members are of the, ' La Femme' type. Ladies, gents.
With all this seed whatsit? do you girls ever get to doing the housework, getting the Governors meals etc????????????????????
Since losing my mate Val. I find myself spending so much time, keeping our tiny flat clean etc, shopping and all the general daily things, that sad to say. So often my plans to get out in the garden, greenhouse even my workshop. Time where have you gone? Unfortunately, I only manage tospend around an hour in the garden. Yet still I often do as much in that hour as some might take a day to do.
To the originator of this thread. Thank you so much. Jokeingly. Now Mike knows who his cranky friends are.
