NOTES

COMMENTS FROM THE POTTING SHED
Jeanette I don’t really get paid at all for overtime so the extra I work during the summer I take of over the winter. I did watch both the grand prix from China and also the V8s from New Zealand so it was a busy motor racing day for me yesterday. It’s a pity Mark Webber didn’t win instead of his team mate.
The Weaver of Grass ha ha – no I’m never short of rain! It is drying out though but the plants I’m watering are ones that have been newly planted these past few weeks. You’re welcome to the comment, I hope it helps someone.
Red Clover Most of the things I plant are pretty common and what I and many other people have grown for years so there is never a problem knowing how to care for it. The problems I have are with plants that aren’t really native to this country like why do the lemons keep on dropping off my lemon tree. Two weeks hardening off should be enough time. I know I’ve been dragging the trolley in and out for longer than that now but they aren’t the same plants on it as when I started.

When did you stop including the data on the weather - did that go in favour of Bob's Banquets? The reason I ask is that I'm intrigued that log fires are still in use by now. But no doubt it is a cold house, and a lot further north than here.

I'm tempted to put our indoor geraniums out. Technically it's still too early though.

I never understood growing strawberries. I never got the 'new plant' of a runner thing. Honestly, is it easy to see, or something you need to be trained to decifer (or is it because it has been rowed and the one that jumps row is the new guy?)

Hey Bob, I am sorry to lose thes PENNINE WAY pictures. Was this the last one? We left for Europe the 22nd and your blog falls apart!
(The Bob's Banquets too departed?)
