Morning all

About 4 inches of snow, and coming down heavily, lane on which we live has a steep hill, so is impassable. OH set of to walk to find where the buses were able to run. If it were me I would have stayed in bed.

Stay safe everyone.

Is this idea safe?

I can't see a problem, it is only like a propagator in a greenhouse.

Manure or something else?

As BL says, must be rotted down for 6-9 months, but  will then be wonderful

YES YES YES as Sally once said! Sorry fellow Sheffielders, but the mighty Spurs are on their way to Wembley.

Evening all, from a cold and snowing [ on and off ] Sheffield.

Decided to spend the afternoon viewing pornography [ of the plant kind ] and now have lots of ideas, if I ever get the preparations done.

KEF do you have a Rhino greenhouse, and if so what sort of base do you have?

I am ever hopeful of getting the permission to get a new one.

Anyway this is not getting tea cooked, so have a good evening everyone.

Morning all, grim up North today, so no prospect of catching up on all the jobs that have been hanging around since Autumn.

Happy birthday Dove, 27 today.

I have been very lucky to have been all over the world for some great holidays, but my two favourite places are; Gairloch in the north of Scotland, and my garden. I am however really looking forward to the Arctic this summer, and its hardly costing a penny.

Edd, do you have a favourite Munro, mine is probably An Teallach, followed by beers in the Dundonnel Hotel?

However I have a few bad memories, as a friend was killed when we were climbing one of the buttresses on Beinn Eighe..

How many have you climbed Edd? I managed 120 before age, lack of fitness and morbid obesity took hold.

Due to rain and cold, have wimped out of gardening. Took a trip to GC instead, and bought stuff to make me think that Spring was coming: fertiliser, Vermiculite and seed compost. Got £5 off for spending more than £20.

Morning all. As you can tell, my body clock is not in the right place yet. I am also freezing, 10 days at 27 - 30 Centigrade means I cant cope with Sheffield in January.

Highlights of holiday were a walk in the rain forest being followed by Cobus monkeys, and our general daily routine, sit under Tamarind tree, on edge of beach, 10 yards from the sea, and wait for member of hotel staff to come and take our drinks order. They also had a curry night on Fridays!

I was very sorry to read your news Verdun, maybe a blessing in disguise though?

Hope the rest of you are well, and am looking forward to getting back into the banter, although not if it is going to be all about bras. My only interest in that subject over the years, was in how to remove them.

Hoping to get outside for few hours today, as I seem so behind with winter work in the garden this year. Did manage to sow some more sweet peas yesterday though.

Have a good day everyone.
