It had to be done  :( wood   :disappointed:

Multi layers of MDF with the centre having two sheets of paper stuck to them for parting. The  :paranoia: wood has been woman handled into something that resembles a cylinder pattern. The head needs a little more work  :thinking:

After handling wood I had to spend some time recovering in the garden. So a picture for you Dave  ;)

Jo

Nice garden Jo. All I could do in my garden right now is make mud pies!  :wallbang: The "Wet Pacific Northwest" is living up to it's name this year.

Yep, here in western Washington state this is the third wettest winter on record. The ground is just perfect for driving fence posts...

Have you put your onions in yet Dave  ;D

Tatties are in... as are the Beetroot..... Spring is here  :whoohoo:

Jo

Onions germinated and got to the tatty loop stage, transplant to pots in about a week and then into greenhouse ( assuming I've slung all the timber out ...  :headscratch:  Every Autumn I dump all the junk in there, promising it'll all be out by Spring. Every Spring I curse my idiocy ...   :facepalm2:  ). I don't plant them out until 1st. week in May.

Me 'taters are in the shed, safely tucked away in their bags ...  ;D  Roosters, that is, not any others that may spring to the deviant mind ...  :thinking: Too damn wet here. Need to get some petrol for the Mantis. Around here we reckon on 2nd. week in April 'cos of late frosts. Unless, of course, one is prepared to see ones 'taters gaily bedecked in fleece.

Gordon Bennett, Willy. That's some foliage you have there.   :ThumbsUp:  Any triffids amongst them ??

Dave.

Pleased to see a few more gardeners out there, there is nothing nicer than fresh produce from the garden 8) Not sure how they get away with selling that taste/smell free stuff in the shops  :disappointed:

Dave,  I too had been hoarding in the greenhouse using it for drying wood I had to make a point to clear out at Xmas  ::).

One for Zee.... Last year's onions: The individual size all depends on how much it rains in June and July. Before they put me on a water meter they were much bigger  :naughty:


Hopefully get the patterns finished off this week, then they can join the Otto Langen patterns on a visit to the foundry  ;D

I would love to get in the garden, but it is under snow, with another 6 inches or so on the way next week.

Good looking onions Jo.

Those are the big ones Kerrin. Last year I decided to pickle all the smaller one  :P Previously I had foolishly tried replanting them the following year but they just throw up flower spikes  :disappointed:

This year young Dave talked me into not throwing away all the weany little onions from the sets but rather to still plant them and use them as spring onions.


Patterns are ready to go on their holidays :)

Nice onion crop Jo.  :LickLips: I've only been semi successful with onions.

However, the important thing is: What is that headlight attached to that is on the right side of the onion picture?  :headscratch:

PS: I see the answer got posted while I was typing my post.

Just how far did you turn the clocks back last October ????   :headscratch:   

Yup. Onions are biennial plants.  Alliums .. as you probably know ...

Dave

PS They won't taste like spring onions, they will be stronger.
