    Morning all… bit of a windy cool morning here…. just trying to keep on top of the weeds 🤷‍♀️….. oh and there’s a badger digging up the lawns and found a bees nest…. it was deep!! Not much of the lawn left. ….. looks like returfing is next on the list :-(

    Morning all. Coffee break here.. the suns shining and the flowers are blossoming… soooo love this time of year. Been away for a week and tomato plants look like triffids!! Oh well at least they survived. Must plant them in the greenhouse now or else I’ll not get them in!! HAGD all 😊

    Morning all, not a bad morning…. still trying to get rid of a mountainous amount of garden compost!! Managed to get all my spuds in last weekend. Yeah !! Onions and garlic are looking healthy so can start to sow some veggie seeds. Not sure what’ll be 1st to sow yet. HAGU all :cool:

    • Hi Sweet Pea, beggar, I missed you again. I have my spuds in…..but there were only 10! My shallot are in too and lots of seeds sprouting in the conservatory and greenhouse…..no idea where the flowers will go :lol:

    Morning all, today’s tasks are weeding, pruning what roses are left, still mulching and thinning out the tomato seedlings plus potting up. There that should keep me busy :lol:

    Morning Peeps!! Suns shining, birds are singing , must be spring!! Thinning out snowdrops today and planting them in the woods. They’ll be a great display next year….😊

    • High Sweet Pea, MUST get some for next year and dig them in deep so the squirrels can’t eat them again! :excruciating: :lol: :rose:

      • Actually Squirrels cannot eat Snowdrops as they are poisonous to mammals.

        • Well thank you for correcting me Eric :-) I didn’t know that. So now I wonder why my snowdrops, or any other tiny bulbs for that matter, have never survived in GG :confused: ? :rose:

          • Crocus are very edible to mammals.
            Scilla are very poisonous indeed.
            What other bulbs have you lost?
            Molluscs can and do eat them off at ground level with no ill effects.

    Morning all. Sunny but frosty here. Just waiting for the frost to thaw so I can start work…. another coffee I think!!

    • Why have you changed to Sweet Pea? I identified with Muddy Hands – my hands are often muddy too – and now you seem to have gone upmarket, and become an elegant lady gardener who probably strolls along her borders doing a little dead-heading. I thought you were more of the “down and dirty” type, just like me. So if you don’t mind, I’ll still…[Read more]

      • Hi SP….Nothing wrong with strolling with a basket hooked on your arm full of the blooms we have grown…but its all the work we do before that to get them ;-)

      • Sue is quite right, Sweet Pea/Muddy Hands – and I am sorry if I was a bit rude. Unfortunately I am getting old and losing my inhibitions – which means I often say exactly what I am thinking. And Sue is quite right too about the amount of work behind the leisurely stroll down the border. May your sweet peas have straight stems, frilly petals and…[Read more]
