Directions for the man in red.

24 December 2009 23:35:39
Up this way.

Up this way.

Sometime over the next few hours the man in red will visit us all and when he calls here,will come up the garden i hope.He can call around by the vegetable garden and if he feels hungry he can shine the light and call into the tunnel and take some winter cabbage and maybe some parsley for the stuffing tomorrow.The only snag will be though that he wont forget to leave me some vegetable seed pkts in place and that he closes the tunnel door so no visitors will enter over night.Maybe a big load of the slugs might like to go for a drive with him on the sleigh.It may be cold for the slugs for sure but their will surely be some tough slugs that are hardy.

Once again,have a great xmas everyone.Time to switch off and check on the weatherman.

Thanks Mairin.I will be going out to collect them in a short while.Two more members of the family that are into growing their own food have phoned Mother and i with xmas greetings,but wait and hope about the outcome of the Christmas potatoes.

Thanks Liga.Maybe they prefere the ground up with you and he may have dropped them off there.If not in a short few weeks i will have plenty of them here and will get you plenty of slugs if you need them.I hope the man in red has heard all right.
