    Right now the liver seems to be the only bit of me unaffected. A testament to the benefit of alcohol methinks. :haw::P :pint:

    What do medical professionals use to preserve specimen livers, kidneys, hearts, lungs etc? Alcohol.

    E1167820-3025-4516-8CAB-02CD79F53B8C.jpeg I’m getting a picket fence around the veg garden today!

    I managed to accumulate hundreds of pots, I thought I had too many, but I didn’t! So, I’m on a mission today collecting from lots of generous people on my local Facebook group.

    Eldest has football that’s going to take up most of the morning but the rest of my jobs for the weekend involve cracking on with the garden and reporting seedlings. I think I need a bigger greenhouse.

    I started constructing a bench for my wifes greenhouse last week. This week I finish it.

    Nothing. For the first time in months, no jobs to do this weekend, except relax.

    The last 2 years I’ve bought chilli plants from, of all places, Aldi in town. About £3 each & both produced loads of good hot chillies outside all the time. The first were really hot yellow chillies, last year not quite so hot red ones. We got so many from the first ones that I dried a load of them & ground them in a coffee grinder. We’re still using that.

    Hoping to get the garden ready this week for a trip to the garden centre!

    The garden (now almost rubbish free) is completely bare and so I'm going to go a bit mad and buy some nice plants so it'll start to look like someone cares about it!!

    This weekend I really want to see the sea, hubby and I are disagreeing of what is a what isn’t allowed, seaside holiday accommodation is open (self contained) but I’m not sure that day trips are allowed yet.

    We will probably end up having the weekend in the garden, for a change.

    The “stay at home” rule was relaxed a few weeks ago and you are now allowed to travel for day trips or longer.

    We’re hoping to go off in our motorhome at some point in the not too distant future.

    Seems I misread the fertiliser and used 19x strength when reporting, may have burnt the roots :(

    For those with aluminium greenhouses, I have found these hooks quite handy.
    [​IMG]
    They will plug in anywhere along the T-slots for the square-headed assembly bolts, in the uprights and the roof beams, and are very handy for hanging stuff up out-of-the-way, yet still visible and accessible. There are various forms about, but that shape seems the most useful to me.

    They give you the facility to water willy-nilly without soaking any tools left on the bench, etc - and they can also be used for support strings, etc.

    Well worth picking up a few, if you see them.
