Would you pay more for a pint of Milk ?

Oh no! That's Cravendale off the shopping list then.

I buy Cravendale which is owned by Arla. Its more expensive than the supermarkets own brands, but it's filtered using ceramic plates and it lasts for ages so no waste. I wonder if they have their own dairy farms.

Evening

Snowing here!

I'm thinking of buying a heated propagator as I've purchased sooooo many seeds this year. Has anyone got one, and what do you think of them? I don't mean anything industrial. Just a small window ledge type one. They are on line for around £25.

Hello! 

Was wondering if anyone has done any gardening today?

What with drooling over seeds catalogues, reading gardening books and watching The Big Allotment Challenge, I just couldn't resist getting into the greenhouse! 

I've made my annual mistake of sowing a few seeds way too early! But who knows, maybe they will come good. I've done some Chillis, Cosmos, Lupins, Tomatoes and Sweet Peas. 

Attempted to potter in my beds outside but it's just far too cold! Couldn't feel my fingers! 

Back inside to look on my favourite website, and maybe do a bit of planting out planning In my garden journal.

What are you folks up to?

Hi Wadie

i think I'd be inclined to leave them to their own devices. Bearing in mind the cold spell we had over Christmas and into the new year I think that if they've survived that they should be fine.  Disturbing now may do more harm than good.
