Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state
There are Natural Rights and Civil Rights. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Where Our Power to Execute Our Natural Rights is Perfect, Government has No Legitimate Jurisdiction
When the Forces for War are Greater than the Forces for Peace   Then the World is in Danger
Politics is not a Dirty Word. It is a Way of Life. How is Your Way of Life Today ?

Officially – It’s Spring


Yesterday was the Vernal Equinox


The Radical-
21st March 2018


Did it make you feel Happy ?


The Sun shone and the red line shot up the thermometer


The soil in Shildon reached 6C 


So we shall begin planting second early potatoes 


With a little helper – some compoubd fertilizer.


In our new raised beds filled with unknown soil


But tested as ph neutral – You dont want soil too alkaline for potatoes


The Kestrel variety have been chitting in doors and are about to feel the chill


Planting them 4-6″ deep and 12″ apart they should be showing by mid April 


When we shall bank them up and leave them until July 1st 


Broad Beans have been out in pots and had a snow covering but emerged unscathed


Early Onward peas are appearing in the “Green” House in trays. They will be grown in pots this year.


We have received 850 plug plants and these were transplanted into 9cm pots,


but we are expecting another delivery of 340 any day and are ready for them.


Lokking forward to a colourful show of bedding plants.


Spring in our step and raring to go !
