Today, DS and DDiL will be on their way home from their honeymoon. They stayed here
The weather has been quite bad with regard to snow and quite scary driving but they did want snow and that is what they got. They couldn't wait to test drive the outdoor hot tub, under the night sky, surrounded by snow! Must have been very cold getting out and back into the bothy:)
However, I shall feel more content (and I'm sure DDiL's mother will as well), once we know they are safely back on local terra ferma. I think their dogs will be glad to see them as well. We never seem to stop worrying about them do we, even though our heads tell our hearts that it doesn't achieve anything (other than worry!).
Hasn't the wind been cold lately? I have had my seed potatoes chitting for nearly a week now, in the conservatory, still they are just sitting there, can't say I blame them. I think I might transfer the perspex covers to the raised bed where they will be growing this year and start warming up the soil a little bit so they don't get such a shock when they are planted.
The cover has been on a bed for several weeks now, warming the soil just a little ready to start sowing lettuces and such like. Once it is removed, I shall replace it with the net covers and fleece.
Gardener's World begins this Friday but the programme I am really waiting for is Beechgrove which begins April 2nd on BBC Scotland or Sunday April 5th on BBC2. You'll need to check out what station BBC Scotland is on as it varies so much.
