PUT THE POLITICIANS ON THE MINIMUM WAGE AND WATCH HOW FAST THINGS CHANGE
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 ?
The Plot

THE WEEKEND GARDENER-Go to it – You green fingered friends

The Plot
TIME TO DIG THE PLOT
 
The Radical 
12th March 2018

WINTER MAY NOT BE OVER BUT SPRING HAS ARRIVED
 
POTATOES CHITTING ?
 
SEEDS SOWN ?
 
Whether it is flowers or food  the urge to produce is here.
 
Never mind your carrots – They almost give away bag fulls around here
 
But early potatoes are a must . So expensive and tasteless when bought.
 
Once the seed potatoes have small stems get them in the ground
 
at least 6 inches deep and then to be banked up.
 
I put mine at one foot intervals 
 
Protect from a late frost with an old duvet
 
Then watch them until at least June/ July 
 
My favourite a second early called KESTREL with purple eyes
 
But it is to flowers and plug plants we enjoy best
 
170 plugs at £17.99 thats just under 11p each 
 
Transplant into 9cm pots with some good soft Irish peat compost ?
 
We had 850 delivered over two days – so order in twos at the most over several days
 
Pansies, Snapdragon, Geraniums, Petunias, and Mimulus
 
All for our garden and then to offer the surplus for sale
 
What I call Primitive Accumulation – or covering my costs.
 
Have we got the indoor shelves ?
 
Our new Covered Courtyard with the greehouse standings –
 
we brought from Lincoln are doing a great job.
 
Keep the plugs moist but do not drown them
 
As the nights warm up you can turn out beans and peas in pots if space is at a premium.
 
Black pots the Supermarkets have their cut flowers delivered in are great for that job
 
Go to it – You green fingered friends
