    Evening
    Some heavy rain here. Hoping these temps stay up as I could do with getting some more things out to the greenhouse. OHs uncle rang to say he has some tomato plants for me , he always grows too many . I need a windowsill space. Keep me busy tomorrow.
    Have a good evening

      just shows the different ways of gardening some Grapes are moving things into the greenhouse and I am starting to move things out, also note that when its wives doing the gardening they use the house for starting off etc. whereas if its husbands thats a no no, at least in this house (there should several rolleyeyes here) and before you think I am henpecked, I am not I just don't fancy cleaning, cooking, washing and ironing for myself
      it may be a struggle to reach the top, but once your over the hill your problems start.

        Evening all. I'm a happy bunny 'cos my washing machine's been fixed. Guy came, kept up social distance, wore a mask, put in new bushes and presto! all done in 30 minutes. (smile)

          Morning all on this bright and sunny day (here, at least). Quite chilly though.

          New chickens only a little bit nervous of me now. In theory, the builder is due to come round today to see what's what and talk about when he can restart (he won't like the fact that all the excavations have filled in with mud due to all the rain and he's going to have to pay to have everything re-excavated, all by hand because there's now no access for machinery). Hope the chickens are well and truly installed before the rest of his crew turn up to actually start work.

          On with the show. Up to me to make it a better day than yesterday.

          Have a good one, everyone. Catch you later. Really sorry that some of our old friends are no longer here, but glad that you are.

            Morning all, it's dull and damp here today so won't be in the garden. Hope the weather is better where you are and you have a great day? x

                  Morning everyone. Having a good one so far. Re-arranged the last of the flowers from my Mum's birthday (21 April so they've done really well) and added some honesty and sweet rocket to fluff them out a bit. All the washing done, hurrah! Sun looks as if it's coming out to play, so I'll be stealing some honey from the bees today.

                  That's a great philosophy, Snoop. One I should put into practice more.

                    Morning, been out in the greenhouse watering, things are doing well now, 11.6 overnight low and even the peppers looking happy in there, tomatoes flowering too. Take care all and enjoy the day, even if it is damp and squidgy underfoot a bit.

                        Good morning everyone,

                        I started getting my no dig beds set up yesterday, it's looking great and I had more homemade compost than I thought so combined with all the manure and shop bought mpc I will have plenty left over, which has given me the excuse I needed to knock down my littlest shed aka the mouse house, and create a bit of a courtyard area with lots of stuff in pots!
                        It's my first year growing and gardening properly for about 9 years since I lost both my dogs and I think I am now on my way to being happy again.

                        Have a lovely day whatever the weather.
                        Always aim for the best result possible not the best possible result
