    Dave, I know almost nil about Cream Legbars but the pale one continues to look dodgy based in the RBST description. Is the spot on it's head yellow?

    Greenbee - I still remember being excited about my first new greenhouse. What will you use it for? 
    I renovated mine two years ago, a cedar wood one. I removed the glass, windows and various panels and other bits. I cleaned and painted everywhere and reassembled it. Then I found a piece 1" x 1" x 6' long. I have no idea where it fits even after looking at the expanded diagram on the instructions. But heyho, it's still standing. 
    This week I've started harvesting strawberries, raspberries and redcurrants. The strawberries are slightly disappointing, many being eaten and many oddly shaped. I've set 5 mousetraps, 4 have gone off or moved but nothing caught. My next project is the pond as there's only about a square foot of water still showing. 
    Love living in a village in the country side

    @in_my_wellies - the greenhouse is mostly full of lots of very leggy Gardener's Delight cherry toms. I should probably move some of them outside. I thought I might extract some seeds from some peppers and see whether they do anything. I've also got a basil factory and chillies in there, as well as some very neglected peace lilies from one I split earlier in the year which are MUCH happier in there than they were in the garage or outside. 

    Large gravel trays arrive tonight, so I can get the layout a bit more organised and watering should be easier. I will have to look into watering systems as realistically I will be going away for days at a time (if not weeks) so need to think about how I can avoid coming back to crispy plants!

    Yes, but we have that already, especially with my soak-away running parallel somewhere nearby.
    But it's OK because we're intending to build a shed on the opposite side of the garden, not in the direct line of view like that of our predecessors. So I'm shunting the hardcore over there. :smiley:
    With the lockdown relaxed, no sign of the predicted roadworks and traffic back to almost pre-Covid levels, we're returning to plant sales again. The tomatoes and cucumbers etc sold so well this year we felt quite guilty, so we're sending the profit we made on those to a local children's charity. I doubt if any of those are going to make up for the losses of the past few months though. :/

    Banned again I'm afraid. :'( Matron says it was a case of one too many double entendres, but I wouldn't say that's Ted's style at all. (S)he'd be more likely to give an annoying poster a sharp kick in the Trossachs ;) .

    Persecution is rife! Here, our woolly cat, Lila, is still being hotly pursued by blackbirds when ever she steps outside the door. Izzy walks about unmolested, so it's a blatant case of discrimination. Maybe the thick tail makes the birds think Lila's a fox?

    Dave, I remember the photo of them as kittens, when they moved in with you. Handsome moggie, Lila. Quite strange how the blackbirds chase her.

    There are four cats in nearby houses and the blackbirds sing in my bush and the nearby trees every evening and I've never seen one chase a cat.
