Re: what's going on

Christmas hampers were being advertised on boxing day. Seems we have forgotten what its all about or have I got it wrong and Christmas, Easter,and All Hallows Eve are there only for putting my hand in my pocket for money, plastic etc.?

Hmmm Feel a bit better now.

Re: First life of 2012 - What are you sowing?

I suggest you do sow seeds because you will possibly have the benefit of the produce (though, in the nicest possibly way, hope not) and even though it's a small the sight of the veg growing could help to sell the property. Must admit when we were selling our last property there was a hole in the end...

Re: Is it Spring Yet?

Perhaps this is the start of a long summer to make up for the one we didn't have last year or natures way of taking that smug smile off our faces by sneaking in a sudden frost at the weekend. Hmmmm. :scratch:

MW Sheep not mine I did want goats but the Memsahib she say "NO!" so I have chickens over on the side of the house http://i696.photobucket.com/albums/vv327/hunros/gardendiag720.jpg Thi...

Re: Buying seeds

I'm afraid I wait until I go to England or get my children (who still live there) the get my seeds. We seem to be ripped off over here in ROI if not on prices then on P&P. Amazon wanted to charge me £20.00 for P&P for 4 ink cartridges but when I had it sent to my mother's house (also in England) p&p...
