Only 8 degrees outside here and that's out of the wind. Watching the thing I skyplussed about Robert Redford and Paul Newman....big sigh.
Verd...is that so you can find your way to your coat if it's dark.....
We went to the butcherrs as we do and were talking about the show. We were given 2 tradestand tickets for tomorrow WAHAY!!
Catch is that we have to find the stand and deliver a load of rump steak and pork pie to the stand holder. Don't care that money saved can go on more plants
Also had a lovely half hour on Skype seeing Grand daughter, and being shown around sons building work that has just been done. Wonderful invention.
My carrots aren't showing either. I sprinkled a fine line of compost over the row so I could see them - only weeds
PS My BP was over the top, doc said I should lose weight, now down nearly 3 stone and BP is good - no pills - still a bit of weight to go though.
And feel so much better and more confident
Well done re losing the weight Matty- hope you're feeling well today. Your freebie will have helped!
Don't eat the pies before you go....
My weight not changed much since my teens but always been quite active so lucky I guess.
Apart from pregnancies
FG, do not wish to hear that about weight!! I've been chunky since I was 7. Blame it on the malt and codliver oil, well the malt, that the clinic told my mum to give me as I was so wee. At the risk of being chastised, AGAIN, I truly believe that a lot of weight problems are gene related. Just my opinion.
Nearly had the screaming abdabs just now as internet wouldn't work. Blooming BT. Never had any problems when I was with AOL. Should have stuck to my guns and not be moved.
Skype's great isn't it Matty. The only thing I don't like about it is seeing myself on screen. Not fathomed out if there's a way to get rid of it. Will have to ask my techie kids.
I'm bored of SE.
I'm not fat, I've just got big bones!
Have just checked my carrot tapes, nothing there after 3 weeks, so planted another row, here's hoping. Also a row of parsnips. Last year I overplanted them with lettuce as after a month nothing had happened. I ended up with 4 parsnips growing in between the lettuce. Didn't know then that they take ages to germinate. Patience is a virtue!
I'm still on the forum as I'm off to visit family shortly and need to keep clean ! Can't even step foot in the garden without getting mucky.
KEF- are you a 4yr old boy.......
I'm being good today i now have 2 salad bowls left in the fridge the first one i chopped bacon and peppers and fried and added that quite nice for rabbit food
Sounds good black. I had last night's left over lasagne for lunch....quite good.
Have you got the lousy rain too?
Spent the morning at youngest daughter's school - annual open morning. Back to spend the afternoon in the GH (very blustery and heavy showers here - but thats ok, water butts haven't fully refilled yet).
Matty - have fun tomorrow - we want a full list of EVERYTHING you bring home. Everyone else - enjoy yourselves, whatever you are up to.
Sue, I can't even use that excuse. I just consider myself well covered. I don't believe I have any ribs or hip bones as I've never seen or felt them.
Working in a garden centre has it's perks, i've been tidying and sorting out a range of flowers, veg, herbs and shrubs today in work,
and later will be sowing some more nasturtiums at home as the first batch are suffering in the wind!
Chick we're all bored with the rotten weather. Hopes your butts are bountiful...
Hi Juniper The wind's a pain isn't it? My sweet peas are looking ok in their new home-glad I secured them well though.
windy mostly and rain on and off here.
Thought the carrot problem was just mine,nothing showing after nearly 4 weeks ,so have put in a second row of seed today.Is it likely to be just the weather or is there some kind of carrotty superbug we don,t know about?
So glad I'm not alone with the invisible carrots
Is the carrot problem nationwide? I am in the South West.

KEF- are you a 4yr old boy....... Behave like one, but add 51yrs. Bountiful butts, mine will be if I keep sitting down typing on here.

We don't have luck with carrots either, this is 3rd year that we have sown seeds without anythiget coming of it!
THis is the first year I have had carrot problems,last year had the best crop ever with Early Nantes.
