I have an old washing up bowl that I put all my hand tools in when I am using them.  I take each one out to use it and then return it to the bowl. As I move round the garden the bowl moves with me. A bit OCD but I don't lose any tools.

Morning all.  Sorry I have been AWOL this weekend,  I have taken advantage of the decent weather and been in the garden.  I have got both front and back lawns cut and edged.  All the borders weeded and covered in MPC and cut back my clematis. 

Hospital appointments X 2 tomorrow,  one after the other,  then hospital appointment Thursday morning and into hospital on Thursday evening,  ready for my feeding tube to be fitted on Friday. .....not looking forward to that. I thought I was done under anaesthetic,  but it is done in the radiology department with a local. Still got to starve tho. 

Hoping for dry weather on Wednesday so I can have my last visit to the car boot for this year. 

End of October too late for grass seed?

Joshua.  I have got some of those sheers.  I think they are brilliant.  I bought the first pair cheap in the SM  and liked them so much I bought a more expensive well known make from the garden centre.  I wouldn't be without them. 

Each to their own. 

when to apply compost to borders

I normally put my compost on at the end of October, but due to problems I have this year, I have done the front garden already.

Back from the hospital.  One appointment done and another to be made.  It never ends.

Yes Fedge . It is with the gastronomy team.  In readiness to having the tube fitted. It is the local hospital.  20 min drive, not 2 hours on the bus. 

Catch you all later. 

Be good
