    You are sooooooooo organised Pen! Hat's off to you.

    I have a similar list in my head, but the problem is, that is as far as it gets.

      There's one thing having a list and quite another actually doing it. My enthusiasm level is at rock bottom at the moment and the weather really isn't helping. Yesterday I walked down to the allotment intending to do something useful, and came straight home with carrots and romanesco because it was "too cold". Today its still cold and also raining, so nothing is going to get done. Hopefully better weather and more enthusiasm tomorrow!

                  I couldn't post today's jobs as I was logged out of the forum and as I had scrolled down a tiny bit I couldn't see the login button!

                  Nothing got done anyway as it was very cold and damp and I had loads of other stuff to do.

                  No gardening time tomorrow either

                  • Nothing doing yesterday as I spent all day trying to book an appointment for someone to come and sort out my internet which is running slowly. I did manage to harvest a carrot from the garden.

                    Weekend jobs (everywhere is very wet/under water, so very limited options)

                    At my friend's
                    Remove more dead tomato plants
                    Weeding if possible

                    At allotment
                    Check everything is still ok
                    Pick up fallen leaves
                    Harvest carrots, romanesco or calabrese

                    At home
                    Remove dead bedding plants where accessible
                    Empty water out of drip trays

                    • I"m thinking about sowing some red onion seed in a plastic tub with lid & leaving them outside in a sheltered spot on the patio. They"ll grow when they"re ready & won"t need any maintenance,hardening off etc. I need to plant a bag of onion sets into a cell tray,I"ll cover them somehow but I wonder if they"d just rot outside now it"s so cold,I might start them off indoors (I don"t know what I"m doing,I"m late planting these sets,I think I"ll start them off on the windowsill in the coolest room,as soon as I see green shoots harden them off to keep the growth small,then leave them outside in a sheltered spot next to the house to keep frost away). I"m just thinking though but the onion seeds are in front of me & the composts in the kitchen potting corner I made yesterday
                      Edit - Done (two types of red onion seed outside & the sets in the window,a couple have already started growing so they"ll be happy).
