    This is the forerunner to http://www.growfruitandveg.co.uk/gra...7-a_92103.html
    Tell us what you intend to do today, or tomorrow, then report back on how much you achieved
    It may be only one thing, and it doesn't have to be a big job, but, as long as you do it, we'll be happy

          Tomorrow I intend to mow the paths, remove old things and sow new ones in one raised bed and plant out the second. And possibly weed bash.

            can`t plan anything, as I have a pup to watch and a wife to run after, but do hope to put some window sill tomatoes into their final pots, and if I get time collect some compost material I think VC calls it weeding
            it may be a struggle to reach the top, but once your over the hill your problems start.

                This weekend's list (unlikely to be completed):

                At my friend's (mornings)
                Construct tomato supports (string and canes) for plants to be trained at an angle parallel to the greenhouse roof - part done (run out of S hooks)
                Remove sideshoots from tomatoes - done for now
                Pot up 2 small tomato plants - done
                Pot up cucumber - done
                Make hotbed for melons - done
                Remove bolted leeks and broccoli
                Plant out celeriac, runner beans and outdoor tomatoes
                Weeding
                Cover paths with weed suppressant fabric (old stuff is disintegrating)
                Watering (greenhouse) - done for Sat
                Harvest cucumber - done
                Harvest calabrese

                At home (afternoons)
                Sow runner beans that have chitted - done, may need to repeat tomorrow as some have not chitted yet.
                Pot up candytuft seedlings - done
                Plan next round of planting in buckets - in progress
                Pick ripe tomatoes - done for now
                Check nasturtiums and remove any blackfly - done for now
                Check for and remove slugs and snails - done for now
                Harvest lettuce, calabrese, turnips, peas - done
                Plant out courgette in pot vacated by turnips - done
                Move Lady C potato buckets, replace with gooseberry bush
                Harvest remainder of Charlotte potatoes from hotbed.
                Move blackcurrant bush onto hotbed and cover with net
                Harvest remains of spring cabbage (regrowth)
                Salvage beetroot if possible (bolting)
                Harvest strawberries
                Watering if necessary

                If time (!)
                Remove old calabrese from buckets 7 and 14
                Plant out peas in buckets
                Pot up cosmos seedlings
                Rearrange pots on path near front fence - remove peas and add cosmos
                Empty some compost out of hotbin
                I have a feeling that some of this will have to wait until Monday.

                    Tomorrow I plan to :
                    • Mooch around the plot a bit,
                    • Prod at things with a spade
                    • Chop something down
                    • Walk down the plot for something and when I get there forgot what I came for. Repeat several times taking a different item back with me each time until I remember it was a cup of coffee in the first place but it's now heading off home time. Then drink said beverage once I get home.
                    • Rebuild the other part of the greenhouse beds
                    • Plant out the toms and peppers destined for the other part of the green house bed.
                    • Pot up remaining toms and peppers into MFBs
                    • Plumb in more drippers into the greenhouse irrigation for the MFBs
                    • Plant out pumpkin plant
                    • Plant out some lavender
                    • Plant out some Mexican Marigolds

                        Today's plan ( will probably go .... Up because the other half's involved! )
                        Put up electric fence around the field.
                        Fill the new shed with yet more of his cr@p so it's not outside spreading across my garden like an oil slick!
                        Pot up the last of my overflow plants.

                              This evening. Avoid being divorced by Mrs Balders.
                              Imagine being married to me (my online persona is somewhat like my real one)!!
                              Fingers crossed...
