I feel like I've missed out for years now!! I love the combination of the presenters. The lady has a lovely soft accent. I've been watching it on my commute to work. I spotted a dog on the episode today so got my much valued pet fix! It's brill.

Hi, I just wanted to share with those of you who'd love to see another gardening show on the telly. I discovered one called Beechgrove and it's absolutely brilliant. Thing is I think it's BBC Scotland. I can only find it on my iPhone and as I'm a bit of a technophobe I have no idea what channel on the normal telly that it would be on, or if indeed a normal telly can only pick it up if you live in Scotland. Anyhow, im sure those of you who are good at the internet could pick it up. Bbc I player I think. 

Sorry if this is a well known show (I must sound like a plonker for those who know the show well) but for those who like me had never heard of it, it's brilliant! Really interesting and basic gardening. For me, the content is loads more relevant than Gardeners World although I love monty, Nigel and carol! Definitely a place for both.

Morning....just watching the mist rise with a hot cup of tea. Wishing I could spend my day in the garden, but instead I have the daily 2hr commute, a tedious presentation to give, a meeting with a 'talker' so won't be short, a trek to the other side of London for another meeting and then home time....after the 2 hr commute back. 

Must remember to buy a lottery ticket at some point. 

Anyone doing anything fun today?

Potted plants for winter?

Thanks mattbeer87. Yep over buying and also over planting is something I'm starting to kick myself for.  I must remember, less is more!

Chilli peppers

I dried some chillis that my neighbour kindly gave me last year in return for a couple of cucumbers! I slit them longways with a sharp knife and left them on a plate on the window ledge to completely dry out. It took a while but when they were as dry as a bone I chopped them up into tiny bits with some scissors. Stored in a little air tight pot. Wow! They taste amazing and I sprinkle them in all sorts for a nice extra kick. Really useful way to use them

Oh dear, I hope no one has hurt ( including any wildlife snuggled away ).
