Getting Bigger...

salad

This was actually taken a couple of days ago; my baby salad sprouts are even bigger now! Wish I could say the same for the tomatoes and chillis, humph. There are a few signs of life in there, but not enough for my impatient gardening nature. In the kitchen, the pot of oregano seeds is slowly starting to yield some action, but nothing yet in the pots of either mint or sage. Grow, babies! Grow!

I'm in the unusual position of having a whole Sunday to myself. This hasn't happened for AGES. I don't tend to like Sundays on my own, but I think I may use this one to finish up some sewing/knitting projects while working my way through whatever I've missed on iPlayer recently. And I should pop out for a walk; we need some eggs. I had a lovely walk yesterday after work. I just struck out in the general "right" direction from the library (I don't know the surrounding area that well. Only what I've seen from the bus) and had a very nice, mostly gently downhill stride down to the Old Village and then onto the main road where I persuaded the bus driver, who was just leaving the bus stop as I rounded the corner, that he really did want to let me on while he was waiting at the traffic lights. I think, when the weather is nice, I'll try to do that walk every time after work.

As you can see from my new, nifty three column layout, Blogger has just updated their templates and the ways in which you can customise them. I hope everything is viewable on your screens OK, I know my screen is huge compared to others. Also, you won't be able to see everything properly if you are using IE6. I have no idea why on Earth you'd be using IE6 (as IE in general is total suckage), but there you are. Get yourself some Firefox action. Apologies, anyway, if it all looks a bit odd to you.

The new layout looks fine on my little laptop screen, using Firefox.

Looks great to me, on my laptop screen :D I didn't know you could now have a three column blog...must go explore the options and try to figure that one out...
Your little salad leaves look to be doing pretty well. I have found my plants are growing much quicker than those further up country, and since the country is slanted upwards you are a bit higher than me...so I imagine when the weather gets milder, your other seedlings will come out and say hello.
(hopefully not literally, because that would be a bit Little Shop of Horrors, wouldn't it?)
