Good evening all,
Well what a day,
im knackard, ive really had a good days gardening and ive just had my hair pruned, so i look like the local council have cut my hair,
to be honest ive seen more hair on bacon than on my head,
Why dont the makers make a shampoo just called “Shoulders”?
They have to rub it in by calling it "Head & shoulders dont they!?
But back to the gardening, It’s been cooler here today but warm enough to have just a “T” shirt on,“Oh” and trousers (dont want you to think im one of those nature lover gardeners who garden “Nude”
Can you imagen being on your knee’s weeding in the nude!
I get bites in parts im amazed at how ants etc can get there at in the first place and im fully clothed,
No i really wouldnt fancy “Naked” gardening.
We’ve not had any callers today but i did get a phone call from a couple who’ve just bought a house near to us and we met in the post office a few weeks ago,
we got talking about the garden and i was asked if i found it any cheaper than buying veg from the open friday market we have here,
Well after the phone call i returned to the greenhouse to finish off re-potting roundhead cabbages i’d been doing,
and i asked the boss what price we would pay for a roundhead cabbage in the shops etc,
1euro 50 cents was the reply,
I’d just counted how many from a half used seed pkt I’d just re-potted and it was 48,
48 @ 1.50 =72 euro approx £65.
Not bad for a few hours relaxed work and when these are harvested and used for freezing and chutney making etc etc the savings will be even better plus i know these are clean of chemicles.
So i think the growing your own can be a saving ,
Whats your thoughts on this one?
