Morning all, I think this was the slowest weekend on Idle Chat since I joined! Not surprising of course, I think we all had great weather to be out and about in our gardens/lotties or having lunch under gazebos, that sounded lovely as usual Richard!
And yikes, what a mistake to make in a cookery book! I made one myself in a garden Easter catologue, when I was working for a French flower and plant import company. I chose the feminine form of cat instead of the masculine and that turned out to be rather rude (I'll leave you to look it up, but it was a porcelain figure of a little kitten, 'chatte' filled with spring bulbs), but I think the customers got a good chuckle out of it...
Spent 2 afternoons at the lotty, didn't get much done though, spent the first day chatting with people - met a very nice Welsh lady whith whom I exchanged seeds yesterday) and an Austrian lady and a couple of Dutch people who mainly grow flowering plants, their plot is the greenest of them all and looks immaculate! There was too much wind yesterday to put the mini polytunnel up, but I did put all the herbs in and the strawberries. Also planted the plug plants in a container and put them in the coldframe, still a chance of frost this week. I made a video but can't upload it for some reason, will try and do that later today.
How about you, what did you all get up to?
