Well that's a new one...

I just had a call from Calor Gas. They can't find my house.

I am used to delivery firms not being able to find my house, and that is fair enough if they don't often deliver round here.

But Calor *own my gas tank*. They had a guy here the other day checking it wasn't leaking. They have been delivering here every few months for the past howevermany years, and this is the first time they have lost it.

Bizzie Lizzies, Peppers & Squashes

The second batch of peppers has finally started to germinate.

The Bizzie Lizzies (OK, impatiens) are now quite big, and are suffering from the direct sunlight on the utility room windowsill: they need more shade. Maybe I can move them into the living room: it's far too cold for them to go out in the garden or even the greenhouse yet. Or the porch maybe?

I've decided that I shall pop one of each squash and pumpkin into the heated propagator as soon as the peppers are big enough to come out: that is a bit earlier than last year, but last year I didn't use the propagator and germination was very slow as a result. This year I shall try kickstarting them.
