Christmas time

It's that time of year again when everything is starting to look like Christmas the tree is up and we have been to the grandkids school pantomime (do all under ten's sing in the same way, slightly flat and loud but with lots of enthusiasm) still it was good to see them having a good time even if it was about half an hour to long and the seats were a bit to small and hard. At least it was in the spirit of the season compared to our local garden center where it seems to have been taken over by commercial Christmas tat, when i just bought a bag of compost they must have thought i was scrooge's brother. I got the compost levingtons no 2 to sow some leek seeds of in, it's a week today since i sowed them and as of now well over half have come through it is just a bit of an experiment to see if i can get some better grown leeks next show season without buying bulbils, on the subject of leeks at this weeks local NVS meeting our top local exhibitor has had his bulbils growing since the early November so i have a bit of catching up to do, and next month we are haveing David Metcalfe breeder of the Pendle coming to show us how he grows them and give details of his new improved Pendle variety that he considers to be an improvement on the original . I must say we do seem to get some top class speakers to come.
