    Have been out in the greenhouse for the last hour and a half putting in the infrastructure to support the tomato vines, and tying the plants into it – and have just popped in for five minutes to keep my caffeine levels topped up. Now I plan to do a bit more planting in the front garden, so that I can lie around later if it gets hot, without…[Read more]

    Morning clickers :-) just had a short walk – saw three hares running through the fields. Had a sparrowhawk in the garden twice yesterday – very welcome as long as it doesn’t take anything away with it! No sunshine as yet but the possibility of some later. Hope you all have a good one :-)

    Born on this day…Mitch Margo

  • Good evening that was some heat this week to carry on next week. 2 chicks have hatched in the incubator couple of days off from planting

  • Same family ennit :lol:

  • Are you sure it isn’t gunnera?

  • A difficult morning at the Foodbank with shortages of several foodstuffs, in spite of a very heated arguement between a volunteer and a member of the CVO who reputedly hold £40,000 in voluntary contributions belonging to us – latterly partially relieved by two local churches who shelled out several hundred pounds on our behalf. Unfortunately…[Read more]

    Good evening all … had a right slobby day today , except for a lovely ‘phone chat with a friend this afternoon. I have to go carefully around the Lornica as I actually saw the bird sitting on the nest :walt: :dance: :lol: .but I can’t take a photo for fear of frightening her away..Too tired to do much else. Tried to put second picture into…[Read more]

    • I guess my blackbirds are actually sitting on eggs at the minute – the male has started making a filthy racket when the cat is about, but he follows me silently when I am out on my own.

      • Brilliant isn’t it Sheila …. in domestic gardens but they still nest :rose: Ours make a filthy racket every day .. it’s either the ginger tom or his brother, or the black cat or a squirrel, or starlings getting in the way :lol: When she’s sitting, the hen is as quiet and still as a mouse when I have to pass the hedge. :rose:

    Afternoon clickers. Grey and cloudy here today – had a bit of rain overnight, I think, but not enough to benefit me spuds :-) Looks like a thundery couple of days ahead so maybe they’ll get a decent drink then. Not up to much gardening at the minute but it’s all growing away merrily. Thank crunchie it is Friday – half term next week but I…[Read more]

    • It has clouded over here in the last hour – and I’d love to think it meant rain. Fingers crossed. Everything would look so much fresher than I can effect with a hose.

    Afters everyone. Last week’s ironing done, this week’s washing and ironing done and three plum and gooseberry crumbles made from fruit that has been in the freezer forever……I don’t know what that combination will taste like I’m sure :lol: The garden is still colourful despite the weather and the first two oriental poppies appeared this…

    • So you have made an absolute pig of yourself with the iron – and gorged on the smell of freshly ironed napery and the sight of neatly folded towels? I wish I could be full of virtue like you Cilla – but I’m not.

  • Morning Clickers, lovely Morning here, and can’t wait to get Outside and tackle those Weeds under the Raspberries, I have to sit on a Chair to do this, as can’t stand unaided, but since my dear Son in Law is recovering from a Heart Attack, someone has to weed, he did all that. But it is amazing what you can do when you have to, but with my…[Read more]

    • As you say Tina, where there’s a will there’s a way :good: well-done for not giving in, it can’t be easy :rose:

    • You sound fiercesome with your trusty weeder, Tina. I could have done with one of my own when I cleaned out the raspberries recently, the whole area was infested with Sticky Willy.
