COMMENTS FROM THE POTTING SHED
Sara Sometimes I forget that’s what’s obvious to me isn’t so for other people so thanks for asking about it. I usually prefer just bone meal but this bag was half price with the addition of blood and fish. Bone meal is a potash feed where as blood fish and bone is more of a balanced feed.
EB I’ve lent tools to people in the past and they’ve come back dirty and rusty which is annoying when I go to such lengths to keep them clean. When me and Vicki go round the gardens we want to pull out weeds and stand plants up, it s real hard not to.

I look at the hours of work you put in and it makes me feel very puny. I remember the work my grandparents did on the farm when I was little - I don't think my gran ever sat down for more than 20 minutes - and it does the same. Funny how it depends what you're used to, but I am getting fitter.
