    Tomorrow I plan to :
    • Mooch around the plot a bit,
    • Prod at things with a spade
    • Chop something down
    • Walk down the plot for something and when I get there forgot what I came for. Repeat several times taking a different item back with me each time until I remember it was a cup of coffee in the first place but it's now heading off home time. Then drink said beverage once I get home.
    • Rebuild the other part of the greenhouse beds
    • Plant out the toms and peppers destined for the other part of the green house bed.
    • Pot up remaining toms and peppers into MFBs
    • Plumb in more drippers into the greenhouse irrigation for the MFBs
    • Plant out pumpkin plant
    • Plant out some lavender
    • Plant out some Mexican Marigolds

    This evening. Avoid being divorced by Mrs Balders.
    Imagine being married to me (my online persona is somewhat like my real one)!!
    Fingers crossed...
