The danger when people start to believe their own publicity is that they often fall off their own ego.

At least travelling under the guise of the Pa Snip Enterprise gives me an excuse for appearing to be on another planet

I've just been reading the June KG Magazine and gone into a panic because I'm so far behind. I know it's only the end of April but Ive only sown tomatoes and peppers. They are listing everything that should be ready to plant out in June and I've not got round to sowing them yet.

One of the recipes is amusing - Tagliatelle Puttanesca. It says that it translates as "tart's pasta" because it was quick and easy to prepare between clients.

General talk in gardening shows & Fb chat is this year is approx 1 month behind for everything, so your right on target PP! That's the problem with these magazines coming out ahead of time, they don't have clarification of what is actually happening in the current month & can't pull the next edition, much the same as when it is great weather as well. Opportunity there KG to think out of the box & get the current conditions & what to sow now in real time squeezed in somewhere.

I suppose even that would be difficult to adapt to all the different parts of the U.K.

I've been to Harrogate Show today and you could tell some of the nurseries had had a bit of a struggle to get enough plants ready for the show. There were still lots of beautiful displays and we had a good day out. There were heavy showers all the way up but it stayed dry while we were at the show with a bit of sunshine but a very cold wind.

Same here Peter but only 5° chucking it down and a cold north easterly. It was going to be my gardening day. Might just put my mac on and go out anyway. At least Ive done the ironing and made some bread.

Glad you're so optimistic OH. I can't get motivated when it is so dark and horrible. There have been some good birds in the garden this morning. 17 species including garden warbler, song thrush, red poll and two pairs of bullfinch.

Just got back soaking wet from couple of hours of planting on plot, the wife thinks I’m mad. At least I did not have to water them in.

Decided to ignore the weather and planted two rows of shallots and a few parsley seedlings. Like you say they didn't need watering in.

Shed extension now has a complete roof.

Not sure if I got any wetter when I got in the hot bath or not. :?

Thank heavens for modern cordless drills, without one I'd have spent the day not doing what I took it off to do. :D
