Not strictly Morning - but decided to post anyway.
Have just seen the weather forecast for next week and am so excited I am making a list of all the things I can finally do - plant potatoes, get seeds pricked out, reclaim my windowsills, plant out my overwintering shrubs .... going to be a very busy weekend. Yippee!!
Does that mean I will have to give up my comfy sofa and the tv and go out the garden? Damn.
Is winter going to end? Do you all know something I've missed?
Check your weather out Nutcutlet. Temperature's rising. Then again, I don't believe a word these forecasters say. Just like politicians.
Just wanted to beat Brumbull to it so, Goodmorning All.
Now going to tippy toe to bed.
Well done TT ........
GOOD MORNING ALL FORKERS ......... dont feel that cold as it has been ? but were all hoping ? busy day for me today but would not have it any other way forkers,
So whatever you forkers are doing today in your gardens or on your allotments ............ have a good one and ENJOY
Morning, forkers. Absolutely KNACKERED this morning after my day in the garden yesterday. Thought I'd already broken myself in to it in the last mild spell and was rather pleased by the lack of aches and pains then. I was WRONG....
Good morning all It's my daughter's birthday today - (how can I have a daughter of that age???) so I'll be heading south to have lunch with her, calling in on my Aged Ps on the way - so a lot of miles to drive today and I'm likely to be shattered when I get back - OH is sorting supper and I'll come and sit on the sofa with you lot and see what new gardening queries you've answered - there seem to be lots more just recently - I suppose it's the time of year, it can hardly be the weather
How many gardening queries will we get when things start growing I wonder
Have a lovely day everyone
Hi, another sharp frost in the night but a sunny morning, seems you cant get one without the other. Picked up a 6 pk of strawberrys for €2.49 and lollo rosso and chilli plugs for €1.49. All half price
Now if they would water them, they would practically walk out the doors at those prices. This week I think around here is looking good for actually getting going with the garden.
Any way you should find me in the green house potting up this morning

Tina, the weather soon will be "simply the best" Ok......I'll get my coat
Very good prices Blackest..was going to buy some strawbs last weekend but managed to resist...maybe this weekend though I've sown the lettuce seeds I have but I do like l.rosso so I might get some for sowing later.
No frost here today but dry and light cloud. Had to water plants this week - plants needing watering in April - in the west of Scotland? Almost unheard of
Have a good day all
Ditto westerly Wales, FG. I have never watered in April before.
A while before I'll need to water here in 'dry' East Anglia
Sun seems to have disappeared here in Wales. Not a bad day, though. Family visiting and bi-monthy retired teaching pals get-together so not much gardening today. Looked around the group last time and thought, 'Gosh, we're old now!' Grey hair, lost figures and disabiity abounding. Except me, of course. I'm still 27, as I've celebrated on other threads. I did have a tumour removed from my head a few years back, and walk rather drunkenly (especially when leaving pubs) and am pretty deaf as a result of tumour, but what's that when you are 27 and fit as a fiddle?
Right, off now - have a good day everyone
