What I will prob do - is use the bit I found yesterday for the roof - and the wooden framed ones as a replacement set for the 'hole' left by the old broken pane.
All in all - a busy day tomorrow. Oh, and the other pieces of glass - I have put on my raised bed - as a cold frame.

The 2 varieties of peas I had sown (2 weeks ago - exactly) on my window sill have been planted out. They are protected by cardboard tubes at the moment, overnight, just to help them harden-off. I'm pretty impressed by their growth and should expect some quality produce in about 4-6 weeks. Just to remind you - they were; Ne PLus Ultra (200 year old variety - left) and Purple Podded (right).
Spring Weather Report
Just an update on the weather - it is a bit below-par on the weather front. It is a bit cooler but normally wet for this time of year. All in all - things are a bit slow on the growing front - but a few warm days will help things catch up.
Max air temp (last 24 hrs) = 8.3 Degrees C
Min air temp (last 24 hrs) = 3.4 Degrees C

Am off ill at the moment with an infection - so a light job was to construct a pea frame (see photo). The peas that have been growing on my window sill for 10 days are about 15cm high - so they have gone outside. As it is a bit cold, I have put cardboard tubes round them for some protection (hope it works). In addition, have planted some runner bean seeds - which I hope will take over as the peas die back. Also, I am hoping to use the same 2 pots for some tomato plants, later in the summer -using the canes/frames for the trusses - let's see if this works.

Garlic from the fridge
I did an experiment with some garlic bulbs I had in the fridge. I split the big bulb and planted the pieces in some compost/yog pots on the window sill of the kitchen (last friday - 29th March). Well they are only growing very well and - not only that - the have rooted all the way to the bottom and the roots are popping out the bottom drainage holes - that's well fast!!!

It turns out that I have a small Wren (bird) nesting in one of my hanging baskets. Seems it likes that moss that I have put around the top, so has made a nice hole and created a hollow.Thing is:
- do I move it (it is right next to my shed door), and
- do I continue to water my basket - soggy chicks!
