Burns Night

Today (Sunday) it is 250 years since the birth of Robert Burns and living fairly close to the Scottish border means we have had quite a lot of media coverage of his poetry and events planned to celebrate his birthday, it seemed appropriate that i raised the Scottish flag this weekend to mark the occasion and we will also be having Haggis for Tea tonight with the usual neeps and tatties to go with it. This year is being marketed as the home coming for all persons of Scottish decent so if you are coming home this year have a good time.

On a more regular level i took the chance this weekend to move some of the leeks i started early December out into the greenhouse so as to make room for the onions that are now starting to get growing , I just moved enough of the strongest plants out, they still have plenty of bottom heat as i sat them in the propagator, tho it will be a bit cooler air temperature i think they should be all right, if it starts to get realy cold again i will pop some flece over them. At the same time i set some canes in with clips as they were just starting to need a bit of support to keep them growing straight, it is the first time that i have done this and was suprised just how fiddly it was to do.
