Hello from wet Scotland

Post: # 201255Post StJon »

Hi folks,
found the site this morning and have picked up loads already. As I say raining today in the west but that means I don't need to water some of the planters I have, though I will go out this evening and wet the toms, peppers, peas and strawbs under plastic. I'm not a car driver so walk, cycle and use public transport. I love the outdoors, wee bit of foraging and using natural materials for crafts and projects. Look forward to learning and sharing.

Hi there and welcome :wave:

But damn it how happy we'll be!

Welcome to 'ish StJon
So it's YOUR fault for asking, is it? The rain, yes......we could have done with some of that, but could it PLEASE wait until I've brought the nappies in off the line? Perhaps only rain at night? That would be fine....... :mrgreen:

Hello St John

Arnt you the patron saint of something or other? :flower:

Great place Scotland, travelled round it for 4 months when I was 18 and had the time of my life.
Met a raindeer, a woman wha ran a cheeseshop on a bridge nr Blairgowrie who I will never forget and got chased along a beach by a madwoman who I couldnt understand but she was drinking a bottle of JD so maybe thats something to do with it. :lol: Saw Runrig live, that was the best bit!

Anyway howdie doodie :flower:

Hi St John I'm in Galloway and just waiting for the rain to start at last as our rivers have shrunk to nothing...........never thought I would be praying for rain, makes you think what it would be like to be in a country where the there is no rain for years.
