    • going to have to grow a few toms outside this year Anne as no greenhouse has materialised yet – ordered and paid for – I think I can put them in pots against the south wall of the house, that way supposing we have more of this lovely weather the heat from the walls will help overnight and they will get the sun during the day – so best of luck with…[Read more]

      you have my sympathies NT re mole, years ago I planted a full bed of asparagus – 14 plants, all grown from seed – a mole got itself on our allotment and dug a tunnel right across my allotment through the asparagus, destroying all the roots, it took a year to catch the mole and it continued to tunnel across my plot – I have one tiny asparagus which…[Read more]

      good to hear you have a milkman Anne, ours has been so great and we get eggs from him too, they are doing a great job for us, at least a good cuppa is assured each day with ready supply of milk

      • Hallo Jenny :high-five:
        It was our lovely downstairs neighbours who put me onto the milkman, and I now wonder why I didn’t request him before :lol: :rose:

      well, talk about batten down the hatches – the end of last week was something else, had cleaned outside windows on Tuesday, covered in salt spray now, look muckier than before I cleaned them – ha ha – no chance of being bored with nothing to do during lockdown – hope you all had a good bank holiday – took OH to daughters yesterday so that he could…[Read more]

      hope Robert is ok, have accompanied daughter with cats to vets, I found it quite stressful but amazed at how the vets cope with cats who definately don’t want to be there

      morning all, rain and not so warm here, shall not be going out to play today me thinks, but grateful for the lovely soaking everything is getting, won’t have to water allotment or here for a little while, have to find indoor entertainment today, did kitchen tiles and work surfaces yesterday, do wipe everything down each day but a good “do” with…[Read more]

      • What a lovely surprise Jenny. :good: And yes, there are a lot of “interesting” hairstyles. :lol:

      good day folks, bit grey and still chilly here, bits and bobs today me thinks, washing under way, have a couple of big thug type brambles poking through hedge, going to get them cut off at some point and then just take the day as it comes – have a good weekend folks, will have to water the allotment later, the ground is so dry and like concrete -…[Read more]

      • Morning Jenny :-) Sounds like you have a plan – more than we can say for Westminster! Have a good day :-)

      • Morning Jenny, flippin brambles are a menace, we have the same problem here. And don’t even think about a hosepipe ban, I can’t believe how dry it is here in Northern Ireland, almost unheard of! ;-) Enjoy your day, and good luck with the brambles. ;-)

      • Hi Jenny…just don’t think it!!! :excruciating: I have to water every day!! :rose:

      impressed with safety measures at Aldi, one or two idiots who thought social distancing wasn’t for them and they could just push in and ignore the floor markings, stayed well away from them, so did it and that’s it for quite a few weeks

      • :good: Glad to hear it went reasonably well, there are always some selfish prats. :bad: Enjoy your day. :-)

        • I went to the chemist in great trepidation yesterday, and wondered about going too close to reach over and take my meds but you could drive yourself barmy with an over-active imagination so let’s not go there! :rose:

      morning all, bit chilly here but sun shines, witnessed first bird to use our bird bath yesterday, little robin, at our old house the blackbirds used it all the time, made such a splash they watered the plant pot next to it very successfully – ha ha – off to “do” supermarket shop for the first time since all this ###### started, very apprehensive…[Read more]

      • Morning Jenny, just be careful, most of the supermarkets are being very good with distancing and supplying gel, paper etc to clean trolleys, and most shoppers are pretty good too, just don’t touch your face! :good: I do one shop per week and have been fine. :-) Good luck. :clover:

      • Hi Jenny … yes, but stay safe out there…I haven’t dared to leave the garden yet! :love: :rose:

      greetings clickers from a rather chilly and greyish south lakes, what a change – started to explore overgrown pond yesterday, some sort of water grass/reed has taken over half of it, it is matted, took old bread knife to it and managed to get some out, long project me thinks – just pottering at the moment, bit cold to hang about outside but no…[Read more]

      afternoon everyone, been a bit busy, got plastic on log store, it will do until we can get the proper stuff, bit of time on the plot too, broad beans planted out, path strimmed and it now looks as if it is all cared for, autumn did not do any favours apart from a lot of rain and the allotment got away on itself, so feel better now its in…[Read more]

      • Hi Jenny. It’s all looking good at your place by the sound of it. We are having cake delivered from cake makers round the village so we can sit on the front at 4. Have a lovely afternoon :-)
