Contentment and homemade propagators

As I was driving home today I would normally be feeling sorry for myself having had a long day at work and then having to do more work this evening. However then I spotted 2 deer on the farm lane thay runs along to our smallholding and I stopped and watched them for a good 5 minutes. They were more than happy to allow me to stay there. It was lovely. So no I am not going to sit and think how I don't like Tuesday's. I am just going to think how much I love living where we do.
Last night we had a frost and I hope my little seedlings pulled through. They are in the greenhouse and it wasn't a particularly hard frost but even so I am worried they were caught by it.
So in an attempt to make a free hearing system I have bagged up some horse manure which we have in abundance and placed them under the shelf where the seedlings are. Now horse manure gets to some temperature so my plan is to use this heat to put the seed trays on as a kind of free propagator. I think it's a great idea! :)


  1. sounds like a good idea, let us know if it works, I dislike Tuesdays as Martin goes away in the morning again, I am counting down to when h is here full time next year

    1. So far no heat from bags of manure as I suspect there isn't enough yet. I'll perceiver (sp?)

  2. We all need things to get us through the week. Today it was waking to brilliant sunshine and the thought of summer.

  3. Glad it turned out to be a good Tuesday! I hope that the seeds are all OK. xx
