Hi Alan.

Sorry about the surgery news.  The garden will wait.  Sure all will be well.

 Those fruit trees sound good.  I put in an orchard for a friend few years back and she has tons,of apples and pears that I .....I mean she.....enjoys immensely

Hope Red Dahlia read that Dove.  I love sarcoccoca at this time of year. It is a greatly undervalued shrub

Nut, you must be joking.  Used to get the odd rabbit that got in and it drove me barmy.  Always caught them or my dog did.  Womderful thing is though he never hurt them.  He softly carried them in his mouth for me to take to the Towans.   The most gentle of dogs. 

Fertilising the Veg Garden

Fish blood amd bone is an excellent organic fertiliser perfect for veg.  It won't "burn" either in dry thin soils like some of the more (over) powerful artificial granular fertilisers.  It gives a sustained gradual release of nutrients

Hello Tracey newbie, welcome.  You are far nicer than that Tracey 5. 

Its a cracker of a day.  Just took my dog to gwithian and it is a glorious afternoon.  Some sinkage of ground up there though because of all the rain.  Loads of rabbits have suddenly appeared....they think it's spring
