Part that sparked Margo's response and my comment..... No offence intended, in my opinion it was a great response/reply/retort/comeback, whatever u want to call it. Indeed new information that I was not aware of to that full extent either, whilst I know you can do lots with various plants/flowers etc, I am a bit like yourself in that I am a plain old veg kinds person too Very Happy

@slave77: naaaaah, she quoted the bit that she meant, sure everything i say is tongue in cheek and should be taken with a pinch of salt. The exclamation marks give me away.

No offence taken, I have thick skin.

Thanks geranimojess, have learned lots from all of the advice ye share on here.

Veg garden almost finished, need to go through soil in beds one last time for roots and stones then add manure and compost ans sand for drainage for those that will need it if I can finally decide on what going where Rolling Eyes

Nice work there. You won't feel the few months going until you will have lots of growth showing in the beds. Lovely day here in Mayo today. We just sowed our spuds, onion sets and cabbage plants. Didn't want to come in!!

Her Outdoors, I would love to be at sowing out stage! Still I have most veg sown from seed in tunnel and the rest I will buy as plants. So potting on will keep me busy for now. It was nice after noon but the morning was horrible. Will get out again now for a while in get the compost bin setup. All the rain this morn means I can't touch the soil, heavy clay it's a nightmare Crying or Very sad at least you can't get rained on in the tunnel Very Happy

Well it's great to see someone getting on with something as compared to myself who has absolutely nothing done yet. Nothing sowed either in the ground or in pots yet. Greenhouse still has no glass and the polytunnel is still a figment of my imagination. Just cannot get around to anything here with the ground being so wet plus half a dozen other things calling me away too. Grrrrr. I fear that I will have to break my own ethos and buy plants down at the local garden center soon rather than grow everything from seed. Easter week is going to be quare busy!
Well done slave77, you show the way and don't forget to put in the rest of those DPC's on your beds.

I hear you tagwex, it's so frustrating, so much to be done. No harm in plants if it means getting something in the ground. At least you can sow seed for later crops/ winter veg? I couldn't imagine life without my tunnel - it's my sanctuary! Too windy and exposed for greenhouse. I know, but it's so windy can't be bothered flapping around with bits of plastic and I have run out of staples for the gun Rolling Eyes hopefully the wind will die down and I can get it done. Wasn't much fun with 2m wide roll of hipex and me like a starfish tryin to keep it on the ground Saturday morning Twisted Evil had enough wind for a few days.
