Re: How does your garden grow?

I used to get frustrated at blackbirds when i grew strawberries. Having to cut the net to untangle them. I get lots of them in winter + fieldfares & other thrushes, eating my windfalls. There has been an interesting discussion about robins on a Facebook bird Identification group. Apparently continen...

Re: How does your garden grow?

Being outside especially when the sun is shining does lift the mood. And the company of my robin, where-ever I am in the garden he (she?) comes with me. Yesterday just one, alternately searching the ground I'd forked and singing on a nearby twig. There were 2 together the other day (wonder if the ot...

Re: How does your garden grow?

Loads of daffs in bloom and a couple of clumps of primroses. + a pink shrubs 7 a witch hazel. The Crocus & hazel catkins are over. I've plodding slowly on with the veg patch - didn't weed it last year so the clumps of grass are well established. As a slightly less energetic task I'm dealing slowly w...

Re: LL's Gardening Diary

Yes, Spring has taken me by surprise too. Get out and enjoy it, the hard work but the Standing and Staring too. Does your home-working let you choose your own time or must you be at your desk for most of the daylight hours?

Re: How does your garden grow?

Like LL I couldn't resist veg growing. Just put some seed potatoes to chit, and started digging over the patch - still very claggy so not east to weed. Things were drying out a bit, but we had 2 days rain last week and the bottom of the garden is a bog again. Contractors from Scottish Power came to ...

Re: How many of you have had your Covid jab?

The full implications of having the vaxx will not emerge until six months, a year, or two years down the line. I ilona That is true about most things we do.

Maybe that's why you couldn't open the first link then, though I thought people could open FB posts without an account.???

Re: How many of you have had your Covid jab?

I listened to someone on radio yesterday saying that one vaccine (Oxford???) was more likely to give side effects on the first dose, less on the booster, but the other way round for the other.
