Bright and sunny again here and very pongy. Muck spreading with a vengeance since yesterday pm and all the windows open when they started so no point going round closing them. Too late. It'll bring the flies out too.
Glad the doggy biscuits worked Pat.
Enjoyed my day in the garden yesterday but it's back to packing stuff for Possum today and weeding out more stuff we don't need.
I don't think GW needs re-juvenating for younger people but it does need to be made more relevant for all gardeners. Far too many of the more experienced gardeners here think of it as a relaxing half hour with a glass of wine rather than a source of info and inspiration and there is little of relevance to most suburban plots in Monty's garden. It takes a few years of experience to see how, or have the confidence, to adapt what he does for one's own plot.
One of the things I like about Bake Off is that you do get explanations of why things are done and why they work, or not, so I learn.
Have "One of Us" recorded too.
I use WD40 for the usual stuff but also for cleaning my stainless steel cooker hood. It's brilliant. No scratches.
