Glad the poly tunnel has arrived Gina-enjoy. Going to try making your Aub dip it sounds nice. Just checked my Aub seeds 2 are beginning to pop through

Going to the plot shortly to dig through the beds ready for planting. How much time do I spend? not as much I'd like too but since working P/T tend to go during the week as w/ends are taken up with family.

I make Aub curry, must admit the fried aub especially in Chinese rest is so delicious. Lol just sown globe artichoke never eaten the stuff having now realized its not going to be easy and it'll be a while if it does grow I'm having second thoughts.

GH is up and looking beautiful, plants and seed trays have moved in wont be long before it fills up.

Woo2 the propogator will be used indoor no electricity in GH.

Woo2 Its going to an electric propagator shhhhhhh its meant to be a surprise only the husband's has let it out of the bag! Your weather sounds so magical we just get boring rain although wouldn't want the thunder.

The fitter is here putting up the GH soooooooo excited never ever had a GH. Got so many things to go in it as growing cut flowers too this yr. My orange wheelbarrow and shinning rake arrived yesterday.

Zoomer I'm growing aubergine for the first time- only 7 seeds in the pkt which was 2.99 please germinate. Are they difficult to grow?

Victoria- looking good your plot looks like you have been working hard. What are you planning to grow?

Gardengirl- I see what you mean, I also use seedling compost to sow but will try peas with my own and for potting on toms and of course for pots in bags too.

Woo2 So lovely when you get presents that you really want apparently my son is buying me a propagator for mothers day-hurry up MD I need it now!!

Weather was lousy here too yesterday, nice and sunny so far although rain is around the corner.

GWRS have a fab holiday haven't even booked ours yet.

Gina polytunnel sounds exciting  maybe in the future I might consider as far too much to do at moment.

Managed to edge all my beds didn't think carpentry would be such hard work! hoping it will last a few yrs.

Can you believe it we have the water turned off in the winter months I know it makes sense but how are you meant to water the winter planting? Only discovered this when planting my fruit trees and no water coming from the tap. fortunately there was enough in the tank, so didn't have to do the rain dance!

Builder coming to put the green hse up so excited as got lots to go in there.

Woo2 what sort of staging are you having? I've made some from pallets so until the GH is ready (Tue) I'll be buying some more staging.

Q do you use your own compost for seedling and do you add anything like sand? First time ever I've managed to make 'proper' compost since shredding everything. So am planning to use it for my seedlings must admit I'm a bit nervous.

Morning All

Lovely sunny albeit a cold day.

Gardengirl My saw is a Erbauer the only downside it a bit heavy for me but as I'm only going to be using it occasionally and for short periods its ok.

Woo2- I've had the plot almost 2 yrs so only really been growing veg/fruit since then. I grew up in Kent went to London-trained worked and lived there until motherhood and moved to Surrey.

Fruitcake its horrid when there is an 'atmosphere' hope it disappears soon, it reminded me of work! ignore and rise above it is my motto.
