Dove- Good news on BP.
Fairy washer very unlikely to blow up don't worry..my other half was a service engineer and never wanted me to leave washer on & go out..I argued about might as well have peggy tub, but at least I was there if it leaked etc. ( might have been down the garden but technically I was in)
I've got a recall notice from Toyota about faulty airbag on passenger side, They'll get back to me later... great..only had it 9 yrs! Just gonna make sure I drive all the time
Good morning all
Fairygirl - get your BP checked out - there's things they can do for it you know - better to go on meds and get it down than let it go up and up until you explode!!!
A colleague has brought hers down with regular exercise (walking) - but she has more time than I do - she doesn't like gardening and is an orphan
Currently dry and bright but cool. Ankles cold during morning inspection. Someone has been grubbing / snuffling where I've sown 2nd lot of radishes. Otherwise all well.
Morning all. Dove-always had very stable BP apart from during pregnancy when it was worryingly low and caused me to pass out which was a bit inconvenient!
Yes walking is great for relieving stress and, as some of you on here know, I've done a fair bit of it! Been neglecting it recently as I've been sorting garden instead so maybe I should take to the hills instead.
Weather to be pretty rubbish here over weekend so might not get much done outdoors. Can pot basil on and sow more lettuce. Draw out my garden plan and...housework...
Morning all just in after doing morning check Fairygirl weather same here raining and has been all night. As you say about your BP time do do your walking again if that's going to bring it down got to look after your health and try and don't let things worry you to much take care. Going to take my library books back then one of my school footballers is playing in a rugby competition and everyone says he's really good so going to watch him for a little while he asked if i would go. Then back home and into greenhouse still 2 hanging baskets to do and single out more seeds oh plus a shopping to do.
Hi All. FG my hubby has taken himself off his BP pills rather worryingly but has lost a ton of weight and been going to the gym. He monitors it himself and it is back to normal.
Just debating what I need to do before our holiday to Center Parcs on Monday. Planted my cheats GC cabbages yesterday and might pot my leek seedlings on before I go. No sign of my carrot seedlings AGAIN. This is the second sowing...they just don't like me!
dull and cloudy in North Staffs
Morning everyone. Very wet outside as its rained quite a lot overnight. Still dull and cloudy this morning. Just one client to visit this morning then the weekend is mine!
Disappointed with my tomatoes at the moment, only 2 have germinated and its been weeks since they were sown, will have to try some more
Well I'm off to work, then, like Andy, will be returning my library books, little bit of shopping to do before I get in the garden
Hope everyone's issues disappear asap
Lookimg quite nice here...been wet overnight but sun coming out.
Might nip down and get couple of tiarellas ..trouble is GC doesnt have great range. Got just the spots for them
Verd-I like the tiarellas too so as the weather's rubbish here I might take a trip to nursery and see what they have- they certainly have lots of heucheras!
Andy-my problems aren't very big in the grand scheme of things as I'm only too aware
I'm just scunnered!!
Translation available for all non Scots-but I think you can guess the meaning
Woo- tomatoes...think you're probably better getting a few little plants from GC now
Ali-what's the problem with your carrots do you think- are you doing something different from your norm?
Fairygirl scunnered lol just go to the GC and treat yourself think if we could get a spell of good weather that would give everyone up here a lift anyway you look after yourself.
I will Andy, hope you're keeping well just now too
You'd think we'd be used to our weather by now wouldn't you!
Ok Fairygirl....see you there but if there's only one plant left its MINE.
Just heard local news and fatal accident on road not too far from me. Relieved it wasnt someone I knew.....always alarming when it's nearby. Take care everybody wherever you are
Well it just goes to show that I'm too tired at this time of morning- Iposted on wrong thread, the one about teaching children gardening
Hope everyone has a brill day
Good morning all. Going to flower show in a village about half an hour away.
http://www.floralies-saintjean.fr/galerie.html It's an annual event.
I'm lucky to have a low BP but like Fairygirl I fainted in pregnancy too!
My tiarellas, love the nickname of "foam flower".
Hi FG. No idea what's going wrong with the carrots. I'm sowing them into great soil, fine tilth, no stones etc and then keeping them moist but nothing ever appears! Have gone for a short rooted Rando this time as easier to grow but...nada
Morning everyone. Overcast and still windy here. No plans to do much as I was thinking to start sifting and shifting the mound of earth I accumulated from my 'behind the shed' clear up but, of course, it is now well wet.
Bev, feet look great!!
Hope all those ailing are getting to feel a bit better. Still seems to be a lot of 'bugs' about.
How strange Ali. Do a new thread on here and one of the 'veg' experts will no doubt be able to help you. I was intending to do them this year in a large container.I've grown carrots before but not for a long time. I do know that they don't like recently manured soil- could that be an issue?
BL-the fainting was bad- but I was given medication and it made my legs feel like jelly so I don't know what was worse!
Verd- take care if you're out. I know what you mean about road accidents.
And that last plant's mine.....
Wet and dull day here, will be out to doing a little more charity shopping later and may be potting on a couple of things.
Have a good day everyone
Could be a variety of reasons. Sowing too deep? When I sow carrots I cover with sand....for 2 reasons. Firstly so that seed is only lightly covered. Secondly so I can see where seed rows are. It's easy to sow carrot seed too deeply and I have a feeling this is your problem.
Always good to cover seed with fleece too. Protects against weather and pests
I love carrots...grow lots to help me see in the dark!
