Well, I have been mightily sick and now feel a lot better so presumably a bug of some sort.
As I don't have any beds yet I have held off sowing sweet peas and beans on the assumption that they will romp when I do or else wait till next year if I don't get mini-digger man soon. I did see someone on TV once recommending soaking peas in paraffin before sowing. The smell puts off the rodents.
OH is off to Belgium for a week on Friday. He has a golf tournament at the weekend and will then hang on till next Friday so he can bring Possum home with him for 3 weeks of Easter hols. He will have a shopping list for Possum's freezer and lunches with assorted friends to keep him busy and no doubt some more golf.
He's promised to try out his new toy and rotavate a new bed for me to plant out my hostas before he leaves. That'll have to be tomorrow cos Wednesday and Thursday are set to be stormy here.
