    :good: On the skipping, though not in the kitchen, that could have ended up very messy. :lol:

    Ooops on the faulty pattern Jane, bummer. ;-) But you sorted it so all good. ;-) What are you up to in the garden?

    • Been topping up the raised beds. I want to put the winter lettuce outside (from the g/h) but there are millions of slugs with all the wet so probably won’t. Keep promising myself to sow flower seeds and also need to do some more radish. Not quite into top gear yet!

    Morning Jane, taddies are wriggling away beautifully, and there seems to be more spawn as well. :confused: Some frost casualties, but not too many. Are you still at the skipping? Enjoy your day whatever you are up to. :rose:

    Morning Clickers, slightly damp again, but due to improve and, as I’m planning a greenhouse session today, it won’t matter. :good: need more coffee and then pool time. Have a good day all. :-)

    • Morning Karen :-) good for you on the g/h session :good: I’ll join you in a coffee – can’t quite manage the pool though ;-) How are the taddies? Still nowt here :fingers-crossed: Have a fab day :-)

    Afters Sue, that’s always the question for us. :lol: Long time no chat, how’s things with you honey? :rose: :clover:

    Paddy’s day is always my cue to start the spuds Lynn, pending conditions of course. I’ve had the beds covered with black weed suppressant for months to help warm them up, and this week is set to be warmer, so :fingers-crossed: for us both. It’s been that wet I haven’t even my garlic in yet. :confused:

    Afters Jane, GH is now looking almost ready for action, but I need more coffee before I do any more. ;-) You had a good day?

    Morning Cilla, aye, the season is close to kicking off big time. :good: Are you planting the charlottes in bags or in the ground? No we didn’t see the Mournes programme, got caught up in an older Endeavour episode that I hadn’t seen. Will look it up on iPlayer. :good: The Mournes are lovely. I’m just off so have a good day and I’ll catch up later. :-)

    Morning Clickers, a damper start to the day than I’d hoped, but hopefully it will improve and it is mild. :good: Propagator setting up today, :dance: :dance: but off to the pool first. The big question of the week is do I start spud planting. ;-) Have a good day all. :-)

    • Morning Karen. It’s all go on your growing season now, by the sounds of it :-) I’m going to try and plant my Charlottes and shallots this week. Did you see the lovely documentary on the Mourne mountains last night? Must put that on the bucket list ;-) Have a lovely day swimming and playing :notacloudinsight:

    • Afternoon Karen,I was thinking about my earlies too, I shall look at the soil when I get back from grandson sitting, planning on putting them in next week, with some broad beans. :clover:

      • To plant or not to plant? That is the question for gardeners ;-)

    Evening Jane, goodness I would have thought you would be ahead of us here in NI with the spawn, not long to go till April now though so :fingers-crossed: Yip, good to get the GH sorted and once the propagator goes in I’ll be off and running. :-)

    Afternoon all, finally got out for a while this afternoon and got the greenhouse staging washed down and back into the GH, so propagator assembling tomorrow. :good: OH is just shifting some compost into the GH so that it will warm up a bit. Thought my spud planting was going to be very late this year, but looks like it might get started this…[Read more]

    • Taddies? Brilliant and I’m jealous!! No sign of spawn yet but last year’s dollop was the first week in April. So :fingers-crossed: Glad to hear the g/h is good to go :good:
