Winter is the time to check over our gardening tools. One of the things that annoys me is those horrible solid plastic wheels that they love fitting to our gardening gadgets, the ones which won't roll on the grass  :disappointed:

Fred the shred had a pair of those horrible wheels and with his top heavy motor wobbled from side to side when you tried moving him. So from Flea bay 4 pneumatic wheels+tyres for just over £5 each, two for my gas bottle truck and two to fit Fred  :ThumbsUp: They are never the right width but Mr Silky quickly turned the centres to the size, bushes turned for the Gas bottle wheels and another easy job that makes things easier. And here is them with the set I did for the log splitter the other week  :)

It must be workshop time and the sun is out  :whoohoo:

You can tell it is nearly Easter as they seem to think that I will welcome them in :ShakeHead:

This little fella is going back the way he came and if I catch him in my veggie patch I won't be as lenient on him the next time   :stickpoke:

I am more worried about the casting sets  :paranoia: That little fella was trying to get into the workshop when I picked him up, even Surus is kept out of the workshop in case he finds I have more casting sets hidden out there  :-X

Jo

P.S. Don't worry I don't make a habit of picking up fellas  :hellno: I have learnt from my mistakes and have the certificate to prove it  :ThumbsUp:

Back to culturing my horties ...  :)

Spent a hour or so sprucing up some shallots destined for export to Hampshire.

Wouldn't do to supply sub-standard veggies to our Lady Administrator would it ??  :thinking:

Who knows what ghastly retribution would be heaped upon the head of any who would be so wanton.  :zap:

Nice Shallots Dave  ;)

I'll have to show you my monster onion (yes singular) when you visit.

Jo

P.S. If anyone wants to impress said lady Administrator model engine castings, chocolate and/or wine are more effective than shallots   :embarassed:

Hi Troops

I'm knackered ....  :old:

Dug some five or six plants of spuds out and then got about half the onions sorted out for Hampshire Export ...  :D

Still some onions left in, they will come out tomorrow together with some more tatties . Assuming I survive ..  :headscratch:

Now for a curry, some slurp and a shower. In no particular order ... No, not true. Try  ....  slurp - curry - slurp - shower -slurp - kip ZZZZZZ .......  :thinking:  Yep, seems about right ...  :cheers:
