                      • At some point I may have to bite the bullet and either go into a shop or click and collect, I really need to finish painting the 2 summerhouses with wood preserver, off to scour 'tinternet for ideas.
                        If I'm not on here, I'm probably fishing.

                            • So, jobs that need to be done:

                              1) Finish filling the last raised veg bed which has completed the 'terracing' / levelling of the veg garden
                              - postponed Monday because of the weather
                              - postponed Tuesday waiting for grocery delivery then grandson's birthday gifts and soil too wet to sieve
                              - postponed Wednesday as spent too much time on this forum

                              2) Install the pond
                              - postponed Monday because of the weather
                              - postponed Tuesday waiting for grocery delivery then grandson's birthday gifts and couldn't be asked
                              - postponed Wednesday as spent too much time on this forum

                              3) Clear shed out ready for delivery of replacement
                              - postponed Monday because of the weather
                              - postponed Tuesday waiting for grocery delivery then grandson's birthday gifts and trying to organise new concrete base by telephone (where are all the builders?)
                              - postponed Wednesday as spent too much time on this forum

                              Quite a productive week for me
                              East Berkshire

                              There are no gardening mistakes, only experiments.
