Doing something that reminds you of someone!

Have been shelling a bucket of peas this morning, and this always reminds me fondly of Johnboy... when he told the story of shelling large amounts of peas and just chucking the shucks on the kitchen floor and clearing everything up at the end...something I would never get away with... :) Anyone else...

That reminds me, I must get my net out for Codger, so he can cover his Red Currants....

Re: The most exciting news of the year so far (as far as I am concerned!)

It is a battle taking on a plot like that Stephen, but you will get there with plenty of determination...I took on a couple of plots like that many years ago and they are a pleasure to work on now....the docks seeds will keep coming up for about 6 years, before they finally give up!

Re: Pernicious weeds.

A very satisfying job I would think, Snooky, even if it is hard work....

Re: Early Summer Bits and Bobs.

Just had a close one, while cutting a hedge I cut through a Wasp nest...they were pretty angry but, I got away with only 2 stings...The nest is right next to a path, so will have to deal with it later when they have settled down a little.

And this year seems to be going so much faster, even than previous years....

If you can make a fantastic hobby like your Poultry keeping, pay for itself, Alan, you are on a real winner.

Same problem here, Monika, I have put it down to the flucturating temperatures....

Re: Early Summer Bits and Bobs.

I suppose looking on the bright side, Clive, it won't need cutting again as soon.... :wink:
