Yesterday was GLORIOUS & we had to be somewhere indoors but today when we had all day free it started cloudy which turned to heavy rain this pm (& now snow!!)
We got 2 bits of trellis attached to the fence then gave up.
I think we got too used to the sun; was expecting more of the same!
Good evening everyone, im new to this and have really enjoyed reading all of your gardening tips and friendly banter!!!!
Warming up nicely in Northumberland, a lovely sunny day, if the weather is like this tomorrow i might attempt to put some onion sets in the veggie patch although my optimism will await with the changeable weather!!!
Just looked at the 5 day forecast 12 degrees on Wednesday, raining but never mind. Might be completely different by the time we get there.
Thanks Verdun, finally i have found a site, which is easy to use and there appears to be alot of expertise around, (much needed!)
I have loads of questions popping up, and family dont quite get my garden enthusiaism.... im the 1 having to give them my (limited) advice
So its great that now i can pop onto here and ask away!!
Thanks for your welcome!!!!
I think the frustration's caused by having 2-3 weeks of sunny days, (tho' sometimes very frosty overnight) & yesterday had been so warm.
It will probably be lovely tomorrow too, as I've got to go out in the afternoon!! (Can I say "bu**er" Verdun if that's the case??)
Welcome Beth. I can't tell you anything as I'm a useless gardener. All hit and miss where I'm concerned, but there's lots of knowledgable folk that are only too pleased to help and threads to read to get info.
When is it payday Verdun.
Welcome Beth hope you enjoy posting!
Verdun- us Scots ladies are very well spoken- the 'Glesgae banter's' famous don't you know!
Brum - I backed the horse that was 3rd -a fiver each way at 10/1!
I got my new laptop today but I need a teenage daughter to help me with it I think and they're at their Dad's now
I've been catching up after a day out. Had a couple of good laughs at last night's posts and enjoyed the friendly banter, too. Welcome, Beth. There are some lovely people here - even the person who thought that I was running in the Grand National (GG, get it?). They've obviously met me...
Tina, don't put yourself down! I'll bet you know quite a lot, really, even if (like me) you are a learner. I hope to go on learning until the day I finally keel over. Such fun!
It's been a glorious day today but unfortunately no gardening for me instead we've been stuck indoors for last few days decorating. Hopefully get it finished tomorrow.
Anyone back the winner in the National? OH & I were only saying today that the whole event has been scaled down over the years. We're not too far from Aintree and I remember the Red Arrows used to fly over as did Concord on Grand National day
Welcome, Gab. Nice people here.
Thanks to fairygirl and Gardening Grandma for your welcome!!!
Gab82 like the sounds of your veg growing for this year!!
We are going to try out some Kale, a purple variety, mmmmm, and trying out some purple mangetout, i've gone all purple coloured in the veggie section, hehehe!!!
Any tips for chilli growing, do you grow from seed? Havnt got a greenhouse, but south facing windowsill-any good??!!!
Welcome Gab and Beth. What a wonderful day we had. It has been so dry I had to get the hose out to water the front. Trouble was I forgot it just spurted water straight away and left the end in the hallway whilst I went to turn the tap on. Soaking wet carpet!! Still plants had a nice water.
Sorry, welcome Beth, too!
