It's a propane torch. It's no worse than cooking something on the BBQ.

I'm not sure it's in the same league. Half hour cooking a bit of meat compared with a madcap quest to set fire to a puddle.
I think most of you are the thick dumb tw@ts.

I've never been a big fan of roses, but gave in to Mrs Charlie and planted two climbers and a rambler in our new garden when we moved here. They are absof*ckinlutely fabulous.

In other garden news, the beans are doing well and we have a lot of salad leaves ready to pick.

In extra, extra garden news, we can't barbecue because I can't get hold of any 5kg patio gas canisters. And it's pissing down too, obvs.

Today's rain has saved me a mad dash around the garden watering pots and hanging baskets between Little Miss BW's bedtime and the football at 8pm, which is the most positive spin I can put on the fact it's been p*ssing it down all day.

Convert it to natural gas, run a line from the house to the outside wall, never worry about propane canisters again. I haven't looked back.
They don't think it be like it is, but it do

Is that because if you did you might see your 'lawn'?

Or alternatively learn to cook properly using wood and not have the unnecessary expense….

Best crop of runner beans I can remember.

Following last years successful autumn planting of sweet peas from the seeds of the 2020 batch I have planted approx. all of the 250 seeds I harvested back in august and sewn these along 2 sides of the garden. Being LMC it's a modest plot so that's pretty thick sewing, if a decent amount germinate and survive it should look f*cking hideous come next May.

It is not the most imaginative planting scheme I have ever heard of, Ingo. You could mix it up with some cosmos perhaps.

Weekend before last I noted the forecast for the coming days was mostly showery, so spent an afternoon listening to Forest while mowing, scarifying, raking and overseeding the lawns. One week and a fair bit of rain and sunshine later, and it's all growing back rather nicely.

I never gave a fcuk about this stuff a few years ago.

Growing old is great. No more stress chasing tits, fanny and forest, just mowing the lawn and enjoying it.

'Mowing the lawn' makes a great euphemism.
I'm a fcuking idiot. Clearly.

Half-dead compost causing you bother?

You can never be too careful.
