COMMENTS FROM THE POTTING SHED
Sara Sorry, I missed out the comma, I actually feed them on fish, blood and bone meal
Adi You sound like my Tommy, he’s partial to a crust or two. I will be glad when the summer comes and I can have tomato and lettuce and what have you. We have tomatoes from the shop but you might as well eat fresh air for all the taste there is in them so I don’t bother.
Jeanette Yes there were 2 more lambs this morning. I mainly have sandwiches because I only have 45 minutes for lunch so I just want to get something quick and sit down for a while. I don’t mind sandwiches though.

Pleased to see that you have started mowing Bob. I suppose in Summer it is one of the main jobs. The farmer has mown for the firs t time today - I could hear the pine cones crashing into the mower box from in the house!!! It has certainly tidied up the lawn though.

Jim said...

Hi Bob, still having those nice Penne Way pictures. It was a pretty place, the B&B, you stayed at. Our B&B was in Crieff in Perthshire. It was centrally located for our day travels.
We ended up at Turnberry for four nights for a golfing holiday.

Hoping you get the zirk (grease fitting) replaced without too much trouble,
..

Sara I have no idea who’s blood they use!

EB Ha ha!!

Kimmie That’s all there is left after I fed the rest of them to the plants!!!

The Weaver of Grass Cutting the grass always makes such a difference to the garden. Cutting grass of one sort or another takes about one and a half days out of every week during the growing season.

Jim The grease nipple is just to lubricate a belt tensioner so not something that gets much use, not sure if I can get the rest of the nipple out or not.
