End of year awards 2017
« on: December 31, 2017, 19:03 »
Ahem, attention please  :)  I would like to announce the following awards to my best gardening buddies.

Best leading player - beans of all descriptions.  Despite a somewhat iffy start to the weather, you knuckled down and got on with it.  From Wizard beans, through french to various drying beans, a heroic performance was given by all.

Best supporting role - my trusty garden fork, which resides in the boot of my car year round and tackles the plot clay without batting an eyelid. despite my grumbling and groaning at various points of the year.

Best newcomer - my new shed which rose from the ashes (well splinters) of the old one and now stands proud and strong against winter wind and rain guarding my stores of spuds, onions and squash.

A big hand to you all, I'll break out the bubbly and here's to 2018  :D

To all the people who have helped me on my way this year a big hand please

... to the friend who cared for my chilli plants early in the season when we were in India

--- to the friends who gave me rocket seedlings that not only took over half my plot but are still going strong even now

--- to those who gave me seeds I didn't know I wanted but then knew of course I did, how did I ever doubt it?

and last, but not least, all those friends who gratefully accepted surplus runner beans, courgettes and cucumbers a very special thank you  :D :D :D :D

and may I wish you all well for 2018
