Well forkers, yes before you say it we do have MORNING FORKERS that is all about greeting each other at the beginning of the day and so fore, Good Evening FORKERS, is about (if you choose too) saying what you have been up to in the day, lets face it once the better weather is upon us we will all be out and about in our gardens - well i would imagine most, so when you return and pop your feet up for the evening you may want to share your day with other gardeners ? so ........... Good Evening FORKERS
Drum roll ..................... trumpet ...
Been out cutting down some branches today lots of arm aching pain and checked my plastic green house seeds - some bits starting to grow. still cold and windy though in Southampton but was snowing a bit yesterday, want it to warm up, think I would be in the garden even more then.
Going to watch Gardeners World later
good evening i have been at work all day so no gardening here but i am hoping that i can do some clearing up tomorro
I have done nothing, except pamper myself. Have said before, I am a fairweather gardener and the temperature will have to rise several degrees before I step outside the back door. I am a bit of a fraud really and if we had to produce gardening credentials to be on this board, I wouldn't get past go. But I like to read the threads and pick up bits and bobs. I have even found out the names of lots of shrubs, etc, in my garden bought over the years, as I never bothered to keep the labels, by looking up plants mentioned. Hooray for Google.
I've been at work all day, we've had fish and chips for supper (a fish and chip shop opened in ur village yesterday!) and some strawberry plants have arrived in the post - looks like the weather is warmng up just in time
I've had a long day, at a funeral and the ensuing shindig. Saw lots of family and gorgeous grandchildren and had rather a nice time - as you do. It was the funeral of a very good friend to us all and we will truly miss him. We've had four funerals in two or three weeks. Must be our age. Once, it was friends' weddings, then it was their children's weddings, now it is funerals. Sobering.
My T and M begonias are all safely potted up and my seedlings are reaching for the sky. Lovely!
My Crocus young plants (penstemons) are also safely potted on. I am thinking that if I harden them off, they can go outside fairly soon?
FOUR FUNERALS? (yes...I am shouting) gosh...that must be emotionally draining. I'm sorry for your loss GG...glad that you had your family around you today. X
All I've done (gardening-wise) today is take some emerging seedlings out of the heated propagator and popped them onto a tray in the sun room. I have gazed longingly at the garden and sent encouraging thoughts to the apple tree....
thoughts to the apple tree good one, plants bit slow need to grow bit more - does it work does it grow better?
Yes, my condolences GG - you've had a tough time ((hugs))
Evening all. I've potted up some lilies at last. Still got 50 to do but wondering where they will go.
I was also fed up with weather so got some primroses and put in a trough on front window so there is a bit of colour.
Of course it works.....ahem....
Thanks, all! I appreciate your concern.
Any comments on the penstemons going outside?
Depends whether we get the weather we're hoping for, or whether we're getting yet more winter - if spring actually happens I'd harden them off really well, then they'll be ok.
