what have i been up to ..

Posted 11-11-2010 at 22:18 by shillelagh

not much really ...

The frost got at the sunflowers .. so had to pull them all up .. that took an afternoon with the spade didnt realise how big the root system was .. theres great big holes in the border now!!! That i noticed today had filled with water .. and seeing as i aint sticking my head out the door in this weather .. i dont know if they still are!!! Most of em had to be snapped down to 4 pieces .. so then they'd fit in my brown bin. I tried cutting em .. but the pruners i was using wouldnt open enough .. they were so thick .. Anyway thats that for 6 months .. come march i'll be wondering what to plant .. and complaining about the weeds ..and having a bad back again.

Halloween .. hardly had...
