    There's at least one owl hooting outside, and the Candians have just flown over.

    Candians - are they from North America?

    Local ones. They've been around for a few years now.

    A nice evening watching old motor racing vids and listening to music.

    Now I'm laying me down to sleep, counting kitties instead of sheep....

    Had time to mow the front lawn and then strim the edges of the back lawn before work today - the aim is to finish the back before work on Wednesday if I have the time.

    Coming home from work this evening, there was a V22 Osprey being operated off the Felixstowe and Bawdsey coast line - don't know if it was the military on operations or something to do with the cabling for the East Anglia One wind farm (being used instead of a helicopter). Noisy bugger whatever!

    Bearing in mind that I'm quite new to all this growing malarkey too, peas grow best in an open, sunny position so where you are suggesting sounds perfect although they may need watering a little more regularly so as not to dry out. Plant peas directly into the soil. As broad beans and peas are part of the same family, I wouldn't recommend planting them into the same space as they extract the same nutrients from the soil - the second planting wouldn't do as well as the first as the first planting will have taken most of the nutrients needed from the soil. Crop rotation is your friend.

    Carrots can be grown in containers or in the ground. They like an open, sunny position and well-drained soil. Avoid soil that has a lot of clay or stones as your carrots may become stunted or forked. Try not to disturb your carrots when they are growing as this releases a smell which attracts carrot fly. Carrot fly only flies a few inches above the ground so putting up sides or covering works well to prevent infestation.

    Hope this helps. I'm only an enthusiastic amateur just starting out.

    I enjoy listening to the owls twooting outside.
    If you mean geese, then they are called Canada geese, never Canadian geese.
    I know this because my sister, who lives in Canada, told me off for saying Canadian.

    Not feeling great today, kept waking up last night - was really low last night, completely unlike my usual mood. Usually feel like it on rest days....I have this battle in my head that I should be resting as it's important for recovery etc but then I feel like I shouldn't be resting as I need to keep going. ARGH....stupid anxiety...I only have 1-2 rest days a week so it's not like I am lazy. I just hate feeling this way....
