The daftest thing you've done in your garden

Daftest thing?

Few years back amd only having lunch hour I decided to side shoot my melons growing in a cold frame.  Only had about 3 melons.  In my haste I "side shooted" the fruit.  No melons

I usually do things in great patience....stepped on veg seedlings when thinning those alongside, training broad beans up a runner bean frame (novice then) and fallIng into my pool when I ...showing off....decided to jump across from one side to the other.  Wot am I like eh?
