I hope the new mower gives you years of good service, SRS. And yes, on a different subject, I think one could spend a fortune on tools and equipment. I know I could…

I did some mowing yesterday and “our patch” round the back looks better for it. I didn’t intend using it but tried to start the Toro – no joy and I suspect the problem is stale petrol – I’d intended one last cut last year, that didn’t happen and running the fuel off got forgotten... I did get the trimmer started but I’m a touch concerned that the throttle assembly handle feels a bit loose. There are rubber anti vibration dampers in there and I’ve a suspicion that, even though the machine is fairly new, they might need replacing.

I’ve got the propogator in the porch and am waiting for a delivery of a bag of compost which should come on Thu. We’ve got a few bags of general purpose compost around but I use a potting on compost both for starting the seeds off and for growing on in pots before planting in the greenhouse in May.
