    But you need 2 of each at least, in case one doesn't thrive

    I actually got out into the garden today in lovely but chilly sunshine, cut down the old autumn raspberry canes, new shoot already poking through and trimmed the strawberries and potted up some of the runners for the spring plant sale. Had great fun tracing the runner back to the parent plants so I could sell the plants as named varieties.
    Then I sat writing the labels and looking at the lovely tidy beds, sipping a lovely hot cuppa bought out by Mum.
    It feels great to be back in the garden after so long kept in by snow and rain.

    repotted the tomato seedlings from the HP to pots on the windowsill

    made the dinner mince and tatties

    and made bread in the breadmaker santa brought me
    May the road rise to meet you,
    May the wind be always at your back,
    May the sun shine warm upon your face,
    The rains fall soft upon your fields and,
    Until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand
    .

    Yesterday I picked up 5 pieces of glass 8 foot by 2 foot and 5 pieces 2 foot square kindly donated from a grapes niece.
    Made a start on taking the rotten wooden spars down from the greenhouse roof.

    Sowed more - Roottrainer of peas (Carouby de Marsanne) and sweet peas (saved Dark Mix) sitting half-covered in a heated prop; module tray in heated prop with Rosso de Toscano onions, Sweet Nardello peppers, Munchen Bier radish, Tigrina aubergine. To complement the chillis sown 1/1 (one appears to be up already, but I'm guessing it's a weed!)
