Thanks for posting the video Pam. What an extraordinary garden you have - so much work! I've messaged you regarding the problem with downsizing your images, so we'll do our best to resolve that for you!

Pam-of course after I wrote that I realised is probably how you posted the video-

Geoff - the video was easy to post - I just copied and pasted from youtube

I will get there eventually I am sure !

Hi all I see you have been busy.

I took these between showers this afternoon, too many to display so I parked them in 'photobucket'

@ Lilylouise: If its any help, I managed to down size my photos by opening with Microsoft Office Picture Manager > Edit pictures > Re-size > Pre-defined size, choose large web size option. Sorry if this has already been tried or is not an option.

That's some project Eddie - hope we get to see some progress pictures, and I think that's the neatest veg plot I've ever seen !!!

Thanks.

I have to say though that despite looking great, the failure rates etc are just the same as any other plot whatever the shape or form.

I guess that anything would have been an improvement though.

Yep, that's some improvement!

@Eddie J: this is inspiring stuff but also what a treat for you!

Yes its backbreaking and budget blowing but in the end, its all your doing! I started with a blank canvas, nothing but a woody lavender, sawn-off fencing and a dodgy lawn. But I had no budget and hard landscaping was a thing of dreams. I'm still missing bits and pieces since my husband is recovering from a three year illness, its also jolly difficult trying to go around mature shrubs with paving slabs or concrete haha.

Anyways, well done Eddie. I'm also a sculptor and love the newest creation.

I'm having problems uploading photos as well. Have just posted this on the bug site.

I'm having problems uploading pictures from my PC. I keep getting the message that **.jpg is not a valid file type. The files are all < 1mB. I'm running IE 8. I suppose I could load them onto photobucket and then past in the link, but it's a bit confusing as I can't see why they're not recognised. Have clicked on other poster's photos, and they all seem to be straightforward .jpg format. Also had no problem uploading my avatar photo from my PC.

Pam -you can link to photobucket-TG and I have done it

21/04/2012 at 16:28

Try opening an Imageshack account (it's free) upload from your computer to there, 640 x 480 is an ideal size. You can then copy and paste the link directly into your post on here. Oddly you may need to change the code that reads IMG from capital letters to lower case. If you don't do this, you may well get the dreaded white box with Red X.

Thanks Geoff

I will settle for this then but I would like to have the photos rather than the link

hey think I've just cracked it pam.

When you get the insert image box, from the green tree icon, choose external site option and paste photobucket link in there.
