      • Good idea, LD and Nicos. I've not tried lambs lettuce but just ordering some now. That reminds me, this spring I collected some seeds from the miner's lettuce (claytonia) that grows wild on the local hill. Must find that and sow it too.

            • Good luck with your downsizing LD. We could really do with a bungalow in our auld age but bungalows are more expensive than houses!
              Just finished eating Toad-in-the hole with gorgeous onion gravy. The recipe was supposed to be for four people but me and OH polished the lot off.

              Trout fishing tomorrow for a few hours so that is summat to look forward to.

              PS Thanks for asking Nicos, luckily Kato isn't limping any more, I think like me, he has probably got a touch of arthritis as he is nearly 13 years old which I believe is quite old for a Siberian Husky?

                • Good evening all.
                  it was a busy day.
                  Tidied the greenhouse, cut down some tomato plants that were finished. Packed some seeds that were drying on the shelf. Dead headed all the flowers, pulled some weeds and dug over the bed where the sweetpeas were.
                  PUt all the containers of lily bulbs under cover and replaced them with the containers of daffodils
                  Every year when I do this changeover thr seasons seem to be going faster.
                  Have a good evening all.

                    • Surprise! Surprise! Yet again the weather is ignoring the forecast and it is grey, miserable and drizzling persistently.
                      We were going to go down to the allotment for a couple of hours or so but the weather needs to behave itself first.

                      • Mornin n’alln’all
                        Looking dull here too. Yesterday we had hot sunshine between heavy downpours, so it’s been humid too. I did manage to get more weeding done but it’s a bit like painting the Forth Bridge at the moment

                        Not quite sure what today will bring but ,as ever, there’s enough to get on with

                        Time for a brew....anyone care to join me?

                        • Morning it looks like being a dry dull day here with temps up to 20c so hopefully I'll get my tall pea frame dismantled today that's if the forecast doesn't alter to rain again.
                          Enjoy your day

                          • Morning all. Hazyish cloud and so far cool. Forecast for high of mid to top 20s today.

                            The hens are having a whale of a time free-ranging now the temps have dropped a bit. Plus, they've had some boiled rice for extras at breakfast and Mr Snoop has bought them a bag of split corn for treats. They're the best chickens we've ever had and we'll be glad to help them head into winter in fine fettle.

                            Have moved my office back upstairs. I just have to relearn how to arrange my feet and legs to accommodate hounds under my desk. They will enjoy the company not very comfortable for me... One, weighing in at 33 kg, is already flat out across my feet.

                            Busy work day ahead. Plus friend up the valley coming for a very socially-distanced supper. So, better get going.

                            Have a good one everyone. Catch you later.

                            • Good morning all.
                              A very dull morni g but its 18 dogs.
                              Forecast says no rain but the sky looks ominous.
                              No plans for the day but I am sure something will come up.
                              Have a good day all.

                              And when your back stops aching,

                              • Afternoon all, been fishing on our local beach only had one smallish Flounder, which went back to grow bigger, rather windy, but nice to blow the cobwebs away, had the beach to my self which was nice.
                                If I'm not on here, I'm probably fishing.
