Morning all. A bit drier this morning thankfully.

Busy day today. Off to a seed potato day run by Shropshire Organic Gardeners at Wattlesborough this morning. I will get all my seed potatoes there. There were about 45 varieties last year along with onion sets, garlic, rhubarb crowns, fruit bushes and small fruit trees, a stall selling old, refurbished garden tools, and a couple of cafe hatches selling sausage baps and tea, coffee and cake. Nice event even if it is a bit niche. Really well attended last year, struggled to find parking space, so going earlier this year.

Then back home to collect my toolbox and head down the road to work at the local repair cafe this afternoon.

What's everyone else up to?

Just back from a walk over to Kerridge waterfall, which was very nice. A bite to eat then watching a bit of kicksport on the telly.

Shopping for suit trousers... I hate clothes shopping but I've put on weight and need to go up a size. Of course the House of Fraser where I got my current suit has now closed but we now have a Suits Direct and they had a different brand in a colour that was near as dammit the same. If I didn't have two funerals this month I'd not bother, as I never wear a suit any more.

Yes, it's definitely an annoyance when clothes shrink due to lack of use!

(I've been there myself not too long ago. Ended up buying whole replacement suit, with old one going to charity shop.)

Spent most of the day faffing about in the garden. Finished the early (rather light touch) scarifying which means of course I have ten large bags full of mossy rubbish to go to the tip next week and made a start on tidying the borders. Need to dig some of my home made compost in to the veg beds soon but I ran out of daylight before I could get to that today...

Morning all. A walk with Mabel this morning, then a meeting in Newtown this afternoon. Hoping it's going to be warm enough to go to the meeting on the bike.

Trevor, the moss will compost in your heap nicely.
Just mulch your beds with compost, no need to dig it in, the worms will do that for you.

Morning org. Back to the grey weather again after yesterday's sunshine. Off out for a walk in the hills this morning. I'm packing the waterproofs!

Hope the knee's OK, Gary. Drizzly here and I'm seeing my consultant this afternoon, so I'm mostly staying indoors.
