I dug some young potatoes, well lifted them from a grow-sack. Archie was scathing 'too dry', He said. 'You only have the same weight of potatoes you planted. 'Admitted', I replied but these are little young ones and the old ones taste earthy. Arthur forgot to cook them, so I don't know if they are... Sign in to see full entry.

Confessions of a blogtiddler and carrots. Once as I stood on a lady's doorstep She looked rather coy and swept around in a half circle. She asked how do you like my dress. I muttered something inaudible as frankly I was not impressed. Of course in my imagination I said, 'Shall we dance?' We did... Sign in to see full entry.

Mothers day has passed I know. I was just thinking it was possibly that as I was the firstborn I learned many things about my Father and Mother and their parents. My siblings do not share those memories, or if they do they have forgotten them. Also having contact with old people who talked about the... Sign in to see full entry.

Pulled the first young carrots today. Arthur looked at them and said give them to Marie, (my sister) I like young carrots but I like growing them really because I do it in a greenhouse and for some reason they appeal. I suppose I can bunch them up for Archie's stall folk go mad over early garden... Sign in to see full entry.

He was operated on, from what I could make out an ulcer on a kidney. He has to go back in six weeks. He also has... Sign in to see full entry.

I don't really feel a bit inclined to write anything, it seems most feel the same. I keep writing comments and the deleting them because they will probably be viewed as sarcastic. As a lady told me recently 'I don't mind you calling me a an old bat to my face but I will bash you if you say it behind... Sign in to see full entry.

A kind of messy day today. Dentist £150 I was glad the hygienist did not blast my teeth with bicarb. I don't like all the water that escapes down ones throat. the dentist asked why my tongue was purple. I said I put deodorant under my arms powder on my bum and this is what men do when they go...

When I went to the dentist six months ago she said you keep your teeth in good condition. So as quick as a flash, I said, 'so I need not go to the hygienist next time.' 'Nice try.' she replied. Didn't want 40 pounds going down the Swannee. Archie did not come down, his wife said he went to the... Sign in to see full entry.

I saw a mother Blackbird feeding a young one this morning So it survived a nasty frost which killed all the rogue potatoes. The ones that were missed and were up from last year's crop. Years ago my Mum used to go round looking for self comers as they were called. I don't know why we didn't plant... Sign in to see full entry.

Ok this poem is a repeat, But as it did happen, it holds a certain nostalgia for me. It was war time but life continued as fate took its toll of the innocent. As I have said I left school at 14 and it was inevitable that I help my father as my mother had done previously. She wanted another baby. I... Sign in to see full entry.
