  5. Better than expected

    Well I really didn't think I'd have any gardening to report today. Expected the weather to be really awful.

    So after we got back from visiting some local farm shops and wyvale garden centre I was surprised to find the weather quite reasonable.

    We have been visiting farm shops trying to work out the best ones for free range meat and local products. We're getting round quite a few but starting to find our favourites.

    Any way as for the garden, I managed ...
