Not done much gardening at all this weekend. We went to York for the day, yesterday so I am suffering today.  I walked too far.  I was looking forward to going into the Minster, but wasn't going to pay  £10. I have always given a donation when I have been before, but I object to being told that I HAVE to pay. 

I have cut the front and back lawns today, so I've not been totally idle. 

recycling plant pots?

Have you thought of putting a notice in your local supermarket or local shop. 

I think I've done it

As some of you may know,  I have tried growing veg this year,  for the first time. I planted peas, broad beans,  cauliflowers and sprouts. Looking out this morning I have got loads of pods on my peas and broad beans.  

I'm so excited I can't wait to be eating my home grown veg.

Home from the saltmine. Weather has been lovely while I was at work, now it's peeing down, so no gardening today. Well, the garden needs it.

Just a quick hello before I set off for the saltmine.  Hope all are well and have a good day.

What do you carry you hand tools around in?

Posted: 13/06/2015 at 19:48

I carry all my hand tools round in an old washing up bowl. I have one for tools,  one for weeds and one for general rubbish that I pick up on routerround the garden.

By the way Tomorite/Levington and other brands belong to Scotts Miracle Gro -- no email address anywhere!

They are an American company. Their website ( go to the very foot of the page and there is a contact us option, under the 2nd choice, (products) there is an email form .

Don't give up Paul.  Gardening is always a learning curve.  If your local garden centre has any late varieties get some and try again following the advice given by Dorcas. 

I am trying to grow veg for the first time this year,  at the moment,  everything seems fine,  but if they fail I will try again.  If at first you don't succeed. ......
