    Looked at Giant Kilner Jar of Damson Brandy and thought "Must strain that and make Damson Blow Your Sox Off Chutney with that fruit".

    Note to self: Must get out more.....

    Then cooked Trousers' and Piglets' dinner......!

    Built a leaf cage thingy, wandered round the garden for an hour arguing with myself about where to place it, then put it in exactly the same place as the leaves last year

    Wondered how the S&S's have eaten so many of my sprouts..... then noticed that each eaten sprout has 4 tiny sprouts growing from it! Is this like the "cut the cabbage into 4 when the head has been taken" thing?

    Please ignore everything I say, I make it up as I go along, not only do I generally not believe what I write, I never remember it either.

    Today: put 2 asparagus crowns in the ground [thanks James], harvested some potatoes that were in the ground where the asparagus was going, and some echinacea & honesty seeds and took cotton lavender cuttings.

    Sowed some winter hardy salads in the cold greenhouse. Also planted out a few CHard platns left over from earlier in the year. I know they are hardy but putting them there means I can clear the greens bit of the garden.

    dug over the new patch of clag, sprinkled it with rabbit droppings and hay and shavings, covered it back up with cardboard, and ask the worms nicely to sort it out.
    i do have a LOT of worms.
    emptied 3 weeks of water out of my bucket collection, and finally filled the first water butt.
    have 3 gallons of wine to rack off later, when i have warmed up.
