    Good evening, it has been a dry day today, a bit cold but a good day to get some gardening work done, sowed some onion seeds, then dug out a trench to fill with all the kitchen waste I had sitting in a brown refuse bin, I want to plant my trombos into this so now its buried in the ground it hopefully will have rotted down by mid June which is when I hope to plant the trombos, I think I will find out if they grow as far north as this when the summer is not as warm as last summer, I am quite sure they stopped growing when it cooled down in August hope I am wrong as it is a good plant to have in the garden.
    Just back in from a walk with the dog and it was a nice clear sky and the stars looked fantastic, now sitting nursing sore knees, I will have to think on how I can create good conditions for the trombos, peas and beans without having to dig as much, I plant them in my flower garden as, if in the raised beds they would be too high to reach, so that gives me something to think on
    Enjoy the rest of the week, those who are unfortunate that they are back to work tomorrow, remember its a short week the rest just be grateful that it isn't us having to go to work, and pass on a smile
    it may be a struggle to reach the top, but once your over the hill your problems start.

    Mornin Flon'all
    I was just thinking how dark it still is.
    Checked on a sunrise/sunset site and we are only getting sunrise 3minutes earlier than on the shortest day which was nearly 2weeks ago! Can't get my head around that one.

    Hoping to do some sorting of old Christmas decorations myself Flo...remove ones I don't want anymore and repair those which do. I have quite a few wooden ones so best find my UHU!
    Will offer to my kids first (memories) then the rest can go to charity.

    See ya later...kettle's on

    Hope your trombos do well. I was jealous at your success last year. My impression was that they didn't like the heat here, as I didn't do very well in comparison with most of you. They're still on my list though.

    Right, perishing cold here. Have just come back from walking the dogs. Rock hard ground everywhere. And there was me planning my overwintering carrots last night. Might have to rethink that. Will experiment with some but may not go for a carrot empire after all!

    Have a good day everyone, work or no work. Soon be the weekend.

    Good morning all.
    A very dull start to the day.
    Nothing yet planned for the day so will take it as it comes.
    Have a good one whatever your doing.

    And when your back stops aching,
    And your hands begin to harden.
    You will find yourself a partner,
    In the glory of the garden.
