    I'll start my spring sow this week. I've been very unenthusiastic about it all. Cold outside, cold in the GH, though better if the sun comes out. Just can't get the neccessary push.

  • It's because I took a week off work to ride, garden and do house hold jobs and DIY. Well 2 of the 3 have been done!!!



    Back to work on tues and then the garden becomes my escape and switch off time!



    Horrid thing is the oil ran out last night so we are blooming cold, except the conservatory will still be warm with the heater keeping them going!!! image

    Same here with the oil, annoying thing is how much more it costs when you go to pick some up. Apparently it costs more to maintain the pump than to drive a Lorry a 20 mile round trip...

    On the plus side a (relatively local garage) has started selling oil in drums and its open 24 hours.

    Do you have one of those wireless gauges for measuring the oil? We had one at previous house and it seemed to work well. Phoned the oil people when it got to a certain level  and they were usually out within a day or so.image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
