    Today I dragged myself out of my sick bed, staggered into the back garden, kicked the old earth and odd overwintering snail out of a couple of module trays, filled 'em up with compost which has been sitting around getting wet in a bag in the garden AND...

    planted the onion sets and garlic which have been lingering since October in my conservatory (drum roll please).

    I know it's probably not the most auspicious start for them but I knew if I didn't get them in now they'd be all shrivelled and useless in the house.

    I know this is a what I have done thread but I sometimes find it useful as an incentive to go and do something if I post my intentions first. So I am off down the greenhouse to pot on all the garlic and broad beans as they are growing roots out the bottom of their pots.
    I think there is about 10X15 trays.

    - put the germinated Rouge de Florence onions into the cold greenhouse
    - biked 6 bags of kitchen peelings & pet bedding to the lotty daleks
    - collected another 2 sacks of autumn leaves from the bike lane
    - inspected the leaks inside the shed. Put off fixing until May (it's too cold)
    - squished 100s of greenfly that have hatched indoors

    Ooh first time in what seems like ages i can post on here! Lovely sunny day here today but really bitter wind, anyway i wrapped up & ventured into the garden. 12 bags of dog poop later (too much info?!) i raked the weeds from around the base of the 3 apple trees & 1 pear tree to expose the bare earth, then mulched each tree with 2 trugs of bark chippings from the excess on the veg beds paths. Then i emptied out all of my dead & dying pots around the house & had a good cutting back session of the dead plants in the flower bed below the decking. Also noticed the the Snowdrops are starting to poke their heads through the ground. Not a bad start in all, plenty left to do.
