    Morning all, sitting in the garden with my morning cuppa, potted on some kale and some laceflower yesterday, due to a bit of a senior moment when sowing these as I had Sown the laceflower then thinking the tray was for the kale I then sowed the kale on top :confused: so very interesting to see what would come up first, they both came up the same…[Read more]

    Stuck in a long queue this afternoon for the recycling centre, just under 2 hrs :confused:
    But no choice as so much green waste from clearing , unfortunately got another load tomorrow, they are only allowing 4 cars at a time and only 1 person from the car, so I volunteered my husband :lol: , thankfully most of the waiting was along the land…[Read more]

    Sorry for such a late reply, yes they do even though I’d rather they didn’t as they get worms this way :-( but thankfully worming them regularly should solve this :good:

    Hi all, to be honest I watch and read very little of the news now as too depressing and never much change too, my therapy is sitting in the garden usually about 6.30amish with my cuppa listening and watching the birds activity :love:

    Afternoon all, making the most of this glorious weather, a bit of weeding then planted some cosmos that was just too big now for the pots, have some more to go in but still a bit small and they need a fighting chance with the slugs :confused:
    Having a cuppa then will clean the hens out :love:
    Had a relaxing day yesterday, made some cakes for…[Read more]

    • WhatsApp is great isn’t it Karen :lol: BTW, do your hens eat slugs? :rose:

    Afternoon 😊 nice and sunny today but bit of a chill though with the breeze, just pottering in the garden today, potted on some lettuce, do find it easier to start them this way as better chance once planted out up the lottie, did plant out some sunflower plants in the garden and some pot marigold I bought at the garden centre, do love these as the…[Read more]

    • Hallo Karen … I am potting on lettuce too … thinking of keeping them in pots individually as those I planted in the raised bed were eaten by slugs :bad: Enjoy your weekend, and stay safe :love: :rose:

        Hi Karen. I planted out 6 lettuce that I raised in modules and I have another six still in modules. Good to give hubby something to do, don’t want him getting bored :lol: Have a lovely weekend :-)

    • Hello Karen :-) Glad to hear you’ve got your OH under control – Good feet up time for you :good: :lol:

      • Good morning Gals :lol: Guess what! Four potted lettuce decimated … gone! from pots in the cold frame this morning!
        After further inspection, three smug snails sitting on the lower shelf in after-dinner snugness ….as Sadie said “Buerk!” :rose:

        • Oh, damn and blast on your behalf, Anne :-( I can only say that my best lettuce are those overwintered in one big pot that’s now outside on quite a high ‘table’ that ‘they’ haven’t found yet. Have you got more seedlings? Have you got seeds?

          • Thankyou for the expletives Jane…duly sent in ‘THAT DIRECTION’ :lol:
            I have more seedlings, and a few more seeds to plant at a later date.
            Have checked pots for any possible snail eggs, and of course the lower shelves [which incidentally started off immaculate!] for more intruders and given found ones flying lessons ;-) I just wonder, in the…[Read more]
