    I often think about procrastinating,but never seem to get round to it.

    I knit, bake, draw, paint, write, cruise through plant porn trying not to spend more than I can afford or have room for, and dream of summer  B)

    I sort out what I can, seed tins, pots trays etc, then I think about sorting the shed once & for all but never quite seem to get there. When the light levels pick up then I can start sowing in the greenhouse.

    When I prune bushes, I leave the bits in the garage and when I've got gardening time and the weather is unfavourable, I put them through the shredder.  Or I cut wood for the stove.

    Looking at plant porn, yes, and drawing and redrawing garden plans. I realise I spend much more time in the garden in my head than I do in my actual garden. They are not very similar.
  • To be fair we should be used to this rain by now it's been awful since the end of September.....fingers crossed for some warm dry days.

    @jackrussell28 Tbh, I love it when the rain falls on my bit of London. I'm looking forward to a whole week of rain. The south-east badly needs it (even now), it keeps local crime low as the charmers stay indoors; and best of all - no chain-saw trail-bike hooligans tearing up the park. The sound of rain on the roof is heaven to me.

    I feel bad though, for all those in flooded areas - struggling with loss of home and security with little help support from govt.   And I feel for all the birds and insects that are impeded by rain - like the owls and the bees.

    I wish I could have a polytunnel but local planning laws forbid it.

    My greenhouses have to be a certain number of metres away from any boundary line and also a certain number of metres away from the house.
