I've ordered tomato seeds, Indigo Rose and yellow Honeybee. Need to get compost, pots and trays next as gave all mine to the daughter. Who moved house and naturally left them. I grow them indoors on the windowsills.

Got a petrol rotorvator good old merry tiller bit rough but it works.....

Built in the days before health and safety re lack of any guards........ It's at my parents at the moment ready for me to fabricate a couple....


It's a lump.... Getting it out the car struggling there was the distinctive sound of a dry powder extinguisher discharging.... Ruddy pin had come out and I'd knocked it .. spent half an hour hovering out the boot ...... :-/

I'm not laughing Andy.

Ok well maybe a wee snigger.
That's all, honest.

Just ordered a replacement....

Fortunately it discharged into the corner of the boot. But still reached the dashboard! And it's a estate...

On the positive side the 9YO now understands the basics of PASS and had fun emptying it on the waste land at the back of the workshop

It was a road test. You found out that it works if and when you need it. All good!

Oh yes chucked a old shabby unit in the boot for now new one due Tuesday... It's a sad state of affairs when it is cheaper to buy new than get it refilled!

I have to reorganise my car boot,too much junk in there.I am changing cars soon,and need to carry less.The get home bag needs paring down too.Gonna give that a coat of thinking about first.The older I get,the less I realise I need.

Chilli plants are steaming ahead,and ( as usual) the Gardeners Delight tomatoes are the first to germinate.If I kept only one variety ,that would be the one.Lettuce plants are ready for planting in the polytunnel.Got to price up a new cover for that too.It has this Summer left in it,so that will be a job for early 2020.

Ivee been to France for the weekend for pre-Brexit wine and food. Got quite a good haul, but still a few things I need. Friend is going back so I've given her a list.

When we got off the Eurotunnel we drove straight to CarreFour. It was like being in Tesco on a Saturday afternoom! Full of Brits doing their Brexit shopping! We chatted to a few and everyone was sharing recommendations for what was good to buy! Although we had a giggle, people were pretty sad about it all.
