Re: Dorset Coastal

I'm in South Dorset too and have two rhubarb clumps for years.. They grow really well in spite of being in a south facing garden. As for frost, usually from the first week in May is safe.

No sun in the sky today so I've made a 'Sunshine Corner' in the garden instead. [attachment=0]IMG_20200214_101435378.jpg[/attachment]

Re: Mid Winter Bits and Bobs.

It's blown the scaffolding boards off the erection on our house. Mighty bangs and thuds on the roof all night, very scary but too dark to see what was happening - thought the chimney had finally come down (which is why the scaffolding is up). Much drama.

I was reading a very interesting article recently (well several really) about how getting your hands dirty whilst working in the garden makes you happy and realised that this is so true for myself.
