Thursday 9th February - Spouse acting Strangely

Spouse has done three things that are out of character this week.
1. He has bought me 'The Great Vegetable Plot' by Sarah Raven when it's not my birthday / anniversary / Christmas.
2. He has finished off the greenhouse without being nagged.
3. He has sponsored Simon the marrow on

I suspect a new guitar is imminent.

Reading the Great Veg Plot has inspired me to order a greenhouse full of Jiffy 7s, small expanding pots which I had never heard of before this allotment. According to the blurb, 'No other growing media provides as many advantages as the Jiffy 7'. I hope to grow some jolly good tomatoes then.

Good luck with your planting,

Thanks for the list Jean, the weather is so grotty today that we won't be doing much, I will go to all these sites and see what other lotties are up to at this time of year. Can't wait to get planting!
