Ready Steady Grow
Yes I have made a start with this years growing,
No mad rush just made a start with a few
Pepper seeds have been set to germinate
Three kinds of peppers, purple, orange and green
They are now starting to show signs of germination
They are also germinating
the peas are for a first early sowing in the poly tunnel.
germinating like this means I am only growing on viable seed, I am being choosy over what I grow this year.
I had to do a repair on my favourite everyday coat
It had a big tear on the sleeve that let the rain in,
It might look a bit messy but it works, this is the coat I wear everyday when doing the feed rounds so an untidy repair doesn't matter
I used this glue as it is on the sleeve it needed to be flexible and waterproof.
A new bit of equipment arrived yesterday for Martin
Its to help make the butchering of meat carcass easier
The carcass is suspended by the back hocks on the hooks then it can be raised up and hung for a few days.
I had a trip to the dentist yesterday, check up time, I knew I had a broken filling, have to go back in a couple of weeks for a repair and polish, on NHS £42.30 for the complete treatment, I am more than happy with that, we are lucky to have the NHS.
