Bright and sunny here in the NW. The box got it right,that's two days on the trot, think I need to lie down. Here's to hoping it's the right forecast for tomorrow as the plan is to plant out bulbs
It's forecast frost tonight so the Christmas spuds have been brought into the GH and covered in fleece, I'm taking no chances, this will be the 3rd year trying. They may have late blight though or some of the shoots broke and died when I tied them up to stop the leaves drooping. Me thinks if they still have healthy growth by mid October I'm in with a chance of freshly dug spuds in December, wish me luck
Rain. Took me a long time to get my confidence back after I broke a bone in my leg, even now come the icy weather, I'll be clearing paths and the front of snow daily. Hope the weather stays fine for you to cut the front grass.
Hi Zoomer, I know what you mean about the lack of confidence I do tend now to take each step with extreme care I'm just so frightened of falling over again I know it was an accident but it stays with you, I must try to get over it otherwise I shall end up stuck in the house when the ice comes, snow I should be OK as I have those grippers that go on the bottom of the boots/shoes they served me well the last 2 winters when we had all the snow.
It's dropped down to 7.5c now so going to be a chilly night, guess the thermal PJ's will be out before long, just makes the winter seem to go on for ever when the cold starts this early.
