Maud sorry to hear about your cat it's always sad when you lose a pet as they become part of the family and they all are different in their own ways. But great news about your dad so helps to make up for your loss a little. Well need to run now think i hear my steak sizzling and banoffee pie coming out the fridge if i need a help i will post you all lol no chance of that.
Andy I can help you with steak and with the banoffe pie. It's no trouble at all
Oh dear maud you took me straight back to when i lost stubbs named because he had a stump as a tail with no elegance lol and the bravo behaviour got him knocked over too bless them and bless you too xx
So sorry Maud
So sorry Maud. I have only just read this thread.
Good morning all We've got rain We've only got it because I gave up waiting for it and watered the garden yesterday evening - it I hadn't done that it wouldn't have rained
Again 7C overnight - but I bought some new fleece yesterday for the broad beans tonight - they're in flower and there's a sharp frost forecast according to my potato-farming brother.
Morning all had a lovely dinner last night Verdun was nearly sending for you had a struggle with the banoffee pie & cream that means need to work it off in the garden this weekend. Raining here at the moment but it's to get better this afternoon and be good on Sat & Sun. Need to go and get compost for my hanging baskets and still got 6 tray of seedlings to single out got 3x70lt bag of compost last night in Asda for £10 i will see what that looks like when i burst it open. Tomorrow morning early go to the GC and get more compost plus a bag of sand plus no doubt treat myself to a few plants have a good day folks.
Morning Andy - while you're at the GC, could you pick up some little fibre pots for me to pot my tomato seedlings on into - I've not got enough left from last year and I forgot to get some yesterday when I went to buy the fleece - don't want to have to go to the GC again this week
Morning peeps. Glad you enjoyed your dinner last night Andy. Couldn't have helped with the pie as I don't like it..probably just as well ..better for my waistline I had some compost from Asda recently and it wasn't too great so hope it's alright for you.
Dove- I'll get you some pots..can't risk you going and spending more money at GC. I never do that so it'll be fine..
Been wet here -hope we don't get hail like uesterday.
Enjoy your day!
Right, I'm off to work, but TGIF
Have a lovely day folks - see you later
Bit later this morning as wfh. Rain here too - saved me having to water my new plantings. Had a browse thru my GW mag last night - so exciting to see name checks for Verdun, Lizzie and obelixx. And congrats to MMP on another gift voucher
If you're getting fibre pots, they are 99p for 48 at the local cheap shop. Some people say that they don't break down quickly enough hen you plant them (though they tear easily enough when wet!!! ) so I thought I'd soak and break them up a bit when the weather finally warms up enough to plant them.
Off for a day out with OH so I'm hoping to persuade him to go to the National Botanic Garden, about an hour from here. It is well worth a visit, even in winter.
Have a great day. Think I'm the only one on here at the moment, but hello to those who log on a bit later.
Hello GG I'm still here! Looking at sleet and hail outside
Sunny but feelgig cooler. Forecast says cold tonight. This cold spring is persistemt
Have good day all
Morning FG. Sun here! At last!!!! Has been wet and overcast all week, though warmer, and the seedlings which were growing away like mad in the heated conservatory when it was cold and bright have sat and sulked in the gloom. I'm so glad to see clear skies!
Mornin Verd. No not great here either. I think the south is getting some of the rain we've had up here recently. It was only about 7 or 8 degrees by about 7pm last night.
Morning Chicky. You time must have posted at the same time as me.
Morning ALL, it has rained overnight but sun is breaking through this morning. I've just checked the greenhouse and the compost around some of my plants has a rust coloured bubble like appearance???? A fungus?? Any info peeps? I've put the offending trays outside
GG hope you have a lovely day out
Maud sorry to hear about your cat, bless him. Glad It's better news for your Dad.
Andy your meal sounds delicious, happy shopping
Off to work now, see you later
I often speak to my son in the south east of England by phone, to find that he's in warm sunshine while it is raining here in Wales. He gets much colder winters than we do, but much warmer, drier summers. I love Wales, but that dry weather is so attractive! No point in fantasising about moving there though - house prices are MUCH higher.
