KEF I havent shut the doors totally yet as dont have anything too tender in there, just dont want to be caught out by an unexpected frost.  Might leave the roof for a while and see what the forecast says a bit later on.

I've just bubble wrapped the greenhouse.  Now this might seem a stupid question but as I've never had a greenhouse before I hope you will forgive the ignorance.  Do you need to bubble wrap the roof or is it just the sides.

Clocks go forward tonight

Verdun, have you ever heard about the boy who cried wolf.  One day you will tell us the truth about something and we just wont believe you

I don't bother changing the kitchen clock its too high up so tomorrow it will tell the right time for six months.  I wish we didnt change them.  Spare a thought for all essential workers tonight. Many of them don't get paid for that extra hour they do, I know the police don't but not sure about the others.  It must be great for the ones on duty in Spring though as the must get to go home early.

Oh got distracted by all the gossip.  Have planted all purchases and bubble wrapped the greenhouse.  Do you do the roof or just the sides.

Still got Tulips to go in and Ive got some other plants on order.  I think I need to ban myself from the computer.

Have to say Pdoc wouldn't want to be their patient.  Luckily I have a GP who is very 'on the ball' re mental illness.  I've suffered from depression since I was a teenager and it was years before I accepted that it was an illness and not something to be ashamed of.  My treatment plan is great now and I don't have any real symptoms.  I still get fed up occasionally like everyone else but I dont get depressed.

Somehow Ive missed how Verdun's pants got into our discussions but I don't think I want to read back and find out why, especially when we are still talking about Clari.  Is there something more dramatic that Ive missed.

Can't stand unripe bananas, they have no taste.  Bright yellow with no brown bits, that's the best way to eat them, I do remove the stringy bits however and the hard brown bit you sometimes get at the end.  Now I can't remember why on earth we are talking about bananas.


Monty don new series

I just think Monty knows that its not going to be a great way to be productive, the lady with the roses wasnt really bothered about veg, but the lady who planted eratically specifically said she wanted a productive garden. Monty was just explaining that its difficult to have high production if you want a more informal garden complete with weeds.  It wasnt my kind of garden but I could see its appeal for some people.  What I dont understand is why people sign up for this sort of programme when its pretty obvious that they have no intention of taking any of the valuable advice given.
