Braved the elements & erected the kite (again).........anyways it's all secured, managed to fit some DIY guttering. Timbered the beds & chipped the central path. Drilled & fitted a wine box tap to the water butt.“Gorillas are very intelligent, but they don't have to be as delicate as chimps -- they can just smash open the termite nest,”

Set out some Parsnip (30x) seeds on damp kitchen paper to sprout before sowing. They are in a sealed plastic box to prevent drying out

There's so much to do ! I can't cope
- moved my newspaper/card mulches where it's successfully killed the weeds, onto other weeds (it saves hours of weeding)
- finished cutting down rasps. The canes are now drying out, to be used as pea sticks
- sowed chitted peas direct under enviromesh (against pigeons, sparrows & hopefully pea weevil)
- cleared another bed of green manures to plant 2 dozen mizuna
- put the pulled-up GMs onto the beds that need improving. They'll rot down on their own, no digging in
- transplanted self-sown flowers to the perimeter fencing areas, which were weedy & are now becoming flower beds instead (if Mr Nobody can refrain from weedkilling them this year)
- mowed the paths & spread grass clippings on the beds
- started turning all the daleks
- moved 8 sacks of leafmould from home up to the lotty, to be used in the potato beds next year
- found the remaining carrots are throwing out new leaves: I don't want them to self-seed, so dug up for the guinea pigs
- cleaned out the GPs and took their poopy bedding up the lotty
- scattered blood, fish & bone over the onion beds
- planted out shallots, putting a few leaves of caliente mustard in each planting hole (against white rot)
- & 3 trays of winter cress, which did nothing all winter in the gh (not enough light). They'd recently got smothered in greenfly, so it was plant them outside or compost them.

Bark chipped round the greenhouse in the garden. It looks like its been there years now. Nipped to the lotty to tie thinks down as the winds getting up a bit. Had a coffee while there. Now off on school run.Chris

Potted on a few chilli plants and helped my wife put up a second hand DVD case cabinet thingy to use as shelving in the shed!
Pretty pro active which means I'm slowly getting better
