  2. Hello, my introduction!

    by , 22-02-2008 at 08:25 AM
    Hi everyone.
    I'm not used to gardening here in the UK, having originated from Australia where you throw the seed on the ground and they sprout! I had never heard of cloches nor cold frames.

Hope to get to know you all and swap info
    Be patient ...

  5. Weathers gettin' better

    by , 20-02-2008 at 06:39 PM
    Well, been a wee while since I last posted but the birth of Niamh has, as expected, turned everything upside down, but things are slowly returning to normal - the last of the long stay visitors departs on Friday, so I can get back to doing some good hard work at the field. I've received my seeds (bar the Fartichokes which I'm still waiting on, and the tatties which I have yet to order. I opened my onion sets (25kg Sturon, 25kg Red Baron) and my back gave a twinge - obviously hasn't forgotten planting ...
