Give yourself a gold star, Alan (though wind-speed in knots would be nice :D ) You can give yourself more wiggle room on wind-speed by using the Beaufort scale. How kind am I?

As an engineer, I really should insist on SI units, not your funny ones. :)

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

What are your plans for the plants peneasy?
I have some growing under Beech trees at the bottom of the garden.
Do you have acid soil where you are? Gaultheria like an acid soil,
I think (but not sure) that they are related to the heather family.

I'll say it before somebody else does, what's this got to do with the bloody weather?
In my area (and Italy in general) people do not have the habit of lending their gardens in winter; the reason might be that winter here lasts for little time (Nov. to Feb.) and everyone stays indoor.
I arranged my garden in order that there is something blooming in every season.
Yes I have acid soil and they are related to the heather family; I also have pieris in the nearby.
Gaultheria is unknown here so I had to let it come from Holland. I already have the male plant and, as you surely know, I needed female plants to allow for pollination.
One male can pollinate up to three female plants; I wonder why women complain if we men want to copulate with more of them - strange nature! :laughter:

Gardening may be off topic here; Alan H, what about opening a "gardening chapter" for us Humanist race?!

I like it - must be a lot less trouble than tending it! :laughter:

I also like your idea of a separate thread for this weird gardening stuff.

Perhaps we could also have a separate thread for sewing!

It's not so much tending, it's more, repairs and maintenance after the gales and heavy snow.

Listen Yorkie! There's nothing weird about growing stuff, unless you mean those crazy Rhubarb sheds you have in Yorkshire, you know, where mad Yorkshire-men creep in at night with candles, to harvest the rhubarb, If that's what you meant, then I quite agree with you :D

Around 15°C these days but yesterday was a bit cold in the wind. Sorry for the met officiandos, but I do not measure wind speed. All I know is that it was too unpleasant to sit out in it.

A pleasant 13 celcius here today, and no wind.
I dug over and limed a 20'X12' area of (ex) lawn, ready for my main crop tatties (Desiree) to go in next weekend.
We have more rain forcast for the next three days though. :sad:
