Well i said it would be a looong day at the mines. Only 6 hours before i have to get up and do it all over again.
Hi Chicky, sorry you've had a long day, take care.
Night night everyone xx
sorry to see our Andy lost (maybe I should hijack the football thread)
3 more sleeps til our Wisley outing, and the weather forecast is still good
Have a great holiday Lizzie
Just seen the news - hope our Sheffield forumites aren't near enough to be affected by the smoke. We sometimes get heath fires round here, and the smoke spreads for miles - have had the girls kept in at school before now. Take care up there
Morning! My Hong Kongers due today, so excited. I haven't seen them since March and Lilly Pilly mark 3 will have grown so much. Hope she remembers the garden! I have left all the low apples for her to pIck
thanks to everyone for all the egg free/dairy suggestions. The freezer is full
I hope this predicted warm weekend happens for us all especially the Wisley gang!
Hi all v quick hello, been making green tomato chutney and fig chutney both yum, hoping to make plum jam and fig jam later, anyone buy special sugar or just normal granulated ok?
Good morning all
Thanks Chicky we about 4 miles away no evidence of it here. MrsGarden is nearer.
Morning all . 8.30 here so I'm not up as early as it seems.
Ordinary sugar (85p/kg from Aldi is the cheapest I've found) is fine for plums as they have plenty of pectin. Never tried fig jam - you must have a brilliant crop to have enough for jam!
Morning all. Dry but cloudy here. Off to work earlier and staying longer so may not get much done later. Grass needs cut though so I'll try to get that done.
Where do you live Steve?
Chicky - don't think he's properly fit and focussed yet. Where's the fire? I've not heard about that.
Hi again, Fairy it's a fire in an industrial unit in Sheffield, concerns about how much plastic has been burning, locals advised to stay indoors.
Think Steve is in Belgium soz if I'm wrong and have relocated you Steve
Lily Pilly have a great time with your familyRosemummy fig jam sounds interesting
Glorious sunny morning. So warm
I'm in Belgium at the moment but live in Lancs. In the middle of an odyssey, visiting London (twice), Southampton, Belgium and Plymouth, as well as various small ports.
Glad I'm not in Sheffield - sympathy to those who are......oh - is there a fire there too?
(Actually some of my most enjoyable moments have been near Sheffield - singing in pubs at Dungworth ans Outibridge near Christmas)
Bit more organised this morning Might actually get to drink my cup of tea
Have a lovely day everyone Looks like it will be sunny again
Good morning all
Chicky what a long day! I do hope today is better for you Don't want you shattered for Wisley x
Rosemummy were the figs from that border you wanted ideas for a few weeks ago? If they are I bet you're glad you kept the fig tree now
Hope you have a fantastic time with your family lily pilly and love the lily pilly mark three name Xx
