green fingers

As I worked away at woodwork over the weekend, Monkey worked in the veggie patch and a bang up job he did!......it's just a pity I don't eat veggies unless you count pickled beetroot and spuds.

You eat no greens?

James, much to my shame unless it is mushy peas..no. My wife is attempting against all odds to try and green up my diet.

Who eats all the runners then?

Mrs S can manage about half a hundredweight at a sitting, so this year, I've planted about 100 in several places!

That'll learn her...

We've just got an allotment as it happens.

Elecs! That's great news!

If you're interested, there's a great site to keep up with - I've been on it for a few months, and there's loads of help and great guys and gals there too!

Beats agonising about corrupt politicians any day!

Check out 'Growster' on Allotment.org.uk, and see if you recognise the symptoms...

Kev, I'm not as hands on yet as I intend to be but it is proving to be more fun and interesting than I ever expected....squirrels,rabbits,pigeons and crows excepted.

Mrs Albert has just told me what your growing and says if you don't eat your greens she'll come knocking on your door, me I would be worried where I trod around that market garden as I know princess2 likes digging tunnels around there.
