Morning everyone. Weather not great here either so might get some tidying done in shed- trying to avoid housework..
Could go to nursery...
Left my plants out under cover last night...frightened to look! My rescued clematis is growing like mad too Dove, will need to get it put in somewhere- looks like it's a montana so will get it on long fence at back
Morning all - have a good weekend away Dove, and hope the weather picks up soon for Andy and F.
Like Dove, we have another beautiful morning. Just been out and checked that the drooping plants that II had to rescue with a watering can last night look revived (they do). Everything else is rareing to go - seems to be putting on inches every day.
Got visitors this weekend, and some village open gardens to visit Sat and Sun, but hopefully will still find time for some gardening. Looking forward to a long weekend of sunshine
Morning all. Welcome Gilly and Forget Me Not, from now on FGM for short.
Still aching from exertionis yesterday, but must do more today. Weather much more overcast than yesterday but the forecast is for dry weather. Tubs and pots need watering, anyway.
FG, I also put my seedlings out under cover yesterday. They look OK from here in the sitting room!! Will pluck up the courage to look more closely in a minute.
Chicky, I lurve village open gardens! Having a nose into other people's gardens, chatting to the owners, buying a couple of plants andgetting tea and cakes - what could be better? Wherever we wander in our other life as caravan gypsies (off again next week) we find open gardens to visit.
Right, off to work - have a good day everyone.
Looking good out there....sunny and very warm
Not much chance of gardening today but veg patch is pretty full now and growing apace.
Have good day all
You too, Dove!
Mornin Verd and GG and all newbies
GG- just looked at my little babies and they're all fine- hurray! Been hardening off very slowly and leaving them longer and longer . Last night wasn't too cold but wet and windy so felt it was time.
Can we have some sun please Uncle Verd?
I'll make cake...
Hi everyone. Hope you don't mind me butting in. I had a couple of small lemonades last night and realised in the middle of the night that I had left my cabbage seedlings out all night. Just put them out for an airing yesterday in the sun. Hardly dared look. They are a little droopy but I think they'll be OK
Cabbage should be fine, they are fairly hardy. Of course they are babies and not hardened off yet. So long as you aren't a little droopy from lack of sleep worrying about them!
Sue, that chocolate cake is a BBC recipe.http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/easy_chocolate_cake_31070
Thanks, Liz, will definitely try this out! Mmmm, drool!
Morning all, suposed to be raining all day ... hmm not yet thou
if it does rain i think i'm going in the greenhouse for potting up.
Yep Fairygirl, sending you some sunshine ....
Shouldnt say this, should I? But......
.....we could use a little rain........
.Oops! I'll get my coat
Morning all and welcome Ali Newbie Gardener, (ANG in future).
Another lovely day but haven't been outside yet. Not sure what I'm going to be up to today but it might, possibly, involve gardening.
No need to get your coat Verdun, I need some too. Not too much but enough to give the ground a soaking. Overnight will be fine.
Enjoy your day folks.
Morning all. We have another lovey day here. I'm off out in the garden but intend to sit and read rather than do much.
Verd-sending it as we speak...get your 'rain' coat..
There's plenty for you too Tina!
My seedlings are fine-I'm sure yours will survive Ali!
Done shopping, making stock for soup and daughter has -wait for it- emptied bins and hoovered her room....
I need to lie down.....
Tina- do you think we're getting through to them?
Hi FG. Just for today perhaps. It won't last.
Have just texted son to ask if he has remembered his key. Can't be doing with the 3.40 knocking at the door. Always goes out on Friday night and usually spends all day Saturday ferrying between his room and bathroom, saying, 'never again'. I have no sympathy.
Thanks very much for thinking about sending me some rain. After 6.15 would be fine as I have to pop out just before then to collect grandson from Boys Brigade.
BL, just looked at that recipe. My kind of recipe. Think I will get son's girlfriend to make one when she stays next, then they can eat most of it. She likes to bake when she's here, perhaps because I never buy/make cakes.
Am still in my nightclothes. Must make a move.
They might save you a bit of cake for breakfast Tina when you run out of weetabix
I resisted the pains au choc today. Feeling smug.
That won't last long either as I bought two of the calorific yoghurts instead
Daughter's friend is staying over so think that's what prompted the hoovering...told her I was surprised she knew where it was kept...
FG, once wrote a note for my 2 sons 'You can't use the hoover as I have washed the filters - don't suppose you even know where it's kept'. Eldest son said would I stop writing nasty notes. We are a family of note writers and I have kept all of them over the years. Gives me a good laugh when I read them.
Mustn't eat cake. It makes me ill. That's why I don't buy or make any.
Tricky time so not been around.
I am having a bit of trouble with Suttons - can't remember if there is a thread for this or not. I'm sure someone will point me in the right direction.
As a result a coupe of new borders are messed up
Cooler here tday than yesterday but have the T-shirts out now
Not much to say really, BUT the BarBQ has been mentioned for the weekend - if OH gets the table and chairs out And before you ask - NO the downstairs loo is not finished, same as only 2 of the 4 garden chairs were done last year
Look in later
