Has anybody got any of his books, Dan is my hero!! I got a very generous book token from a niece and would like to have one of his publications. I have quite a few gardening books but prefer to buy 'stories' about peoples gardens rather than more specific topics.Any suggestions gratefully received.

Another garden year goes by
The plants now rest and so do I.
A time to muse on this past year
Of new friend made ,yes, right here.
I've gone to gardens, learned so much
Not to mention cake for lunch
And meeting people seen on line
Such visits really are quite fine
Rachels garden full of treasure
Up to which its hard to measure
And Hosta's where the garden glows
As to the road it overflows.
Then to Scrubbers magic dell
Its full of love this you can tell
Brunos garden what a feat
Where plants exult around your feet
Of friends with plants they like to share
Now in my garden, everywhere
Those from Myrtle these from Anne
Bruno, Hosta all the clan
So thanks for friendship and for giving
It sure makes this life worth living
I wish you all great Christmas cheer
And a happy healthy coming year.

Seeing Bruno refer to Aeroponics reminded me that I wanted to try growing seeds / cuttings in rockwool. Has anybody tried this and if so what happened!!
Anyway I have just ordered a tray of it and will try it in a controlled experiment with compost and see what happens.

Lovely morning here but raining , well showers I hope, now.
Did two jobs I really dislike ; while I enjoy weeding I hate collecting the pile in the wheelbarrow and taking it to the dump. I tend to have piles of weeds at various spots around the garden and then take a deep breath and remove the lot.
The other job I postpone is removing grass/weeds from around young trees and shrubs. I know how much better the latter will grow if not in competition but I don't get the same pleasure as weeding flower beds, bit weird really now that I think of it. What is the difference never thought about that before.
Anyway what jobs do you postpone as long as possible?
