Finally replaced my old school solar panel/leisure battery set up with more state-of-the-art gear. Anyone have any use for wezas/gazelles/leisure batteries and various solar panels? Message me for details!
:D 2 days of Spring seems to have lifted my spirits and seen off the black dog.

Now the soil has warmed, it’s time to sort, or start sorting , my planting. Peas are in , a row of perpetual spinach, and the Daubentons Kale is finally out. I have built a frame and filled with fresh soil for onion sets. Done it that way as the garden is alive with white rot. Lettuces and Spring onions are going well in the tunnel, and the tomatoes are coming along steadily. Chillies are a little slow, but they will catch up; they always do. New spuds are coming on in plastic sacks, and need more compost adding.

GOT to start replenishing firewood , there is enough for Winter 18/19, but I like to stay ahead. After my lazy Sunday start, I have what I call a “toolbox day” (or few hours), to get niggling little jobs done around n the house.

Another thing I have been sussing out are a couple of alternative routes to and from work. I now work 13 miles away, and any issues on the M1 cause near gridlock almost instantly , so I now have two cross country routes as back up.

Extending my veg plot, by 35 x 20 ft, On last Wednesday I had 20 ton of top soil delivered, dumped on my front drive . About an hour after, I fell whilst shifting a boulder (much too big for even this man) I now have bruised ribs, a box of Solpadol and two thirds of the top soil is still on the drive :x .

Hope you're back to your best soon mate. These wee reminders that you're not invincible are a bloody nuisance.

Mick, sorry your back's screaming at you now :( hope you heal soon. I know that early in the year, I was doing too much in one go, after not doing much at all, and it really hurt - like I'd been stabbed :shock: really not nice.

20 tons is a lot, though - you're going to have a great garden!
