Re: Happy Birthday.

Dear JB, wonderful to hear from you, Thankyou for taking the time to write us such a lovely letter. As Primrose says, fascinating to hear how things were done when times were hard. Wishing you another year of happy growing and harvesting. RP.

Re: Allowable exercise

I would write one back saying I'm here because I have an allotment. Why are you here?

Re: Very early Spring Bits and Bobs.

Westi, I just checked my cucumber seeds and they are 'marketmore' the picture of the fruits look neither long nor smooth though. You can have them if you still need some.

Re: Very early Spring Bits and Bobs.

None of my rocket seeds have come up, seeds expired 2018! However all the old cucumber and tomato ones have. Tomato seeds expired 2016, cucumber are 2020.

Re: Very early Spring Bits and Bobs.

My local garden centre is delivering. They said, and I quote, if we sell it, we'll deliver it!
I've ordered some compost and seeds.

Re: Very early Spring Bits and Bobs.

I did manage to get out for a bit and plant up last years strawberry runners 'Marshmello'
They are in troughs at the moment, as I am without a veg patch. DH has just offered to look at the hardstanding this week. We might be able to lift a bit of it without having to hire a pneumatic drill.

Re: Allowable exercise

It's blowing a very cold north wind today, winter coat back on to queue to get in to the little Tesco to buy potatoes. That was my little walk for the day, I've been pulling out all the cupboards in my craft/fabric stash/spare room today. It always looks a lot worse before it gets better.

Re: Very early Spring Bits and Bobs.

Fabulous work there Clive! I've still yet to lift the concrete where my new veg patch will be. Job for next week perhaps?

Re: Very early Spring Bits and Bobs.

Yes, I've had one or two of these in the past, they don't do anything, not even grow from what I can remember.
