Potatoes - diff varieties problems

Posted: Yesterday at 16:14

a1154.  Yes Charlotte are great.  As Iv said before, with potatoes it's really 'suck it and see'. Different soils, areas, weather conditions, watered not watered.  Try another variety next year (or not to late for Xmas spuds) and see what happens. There is no hard and fast rules iv found.  Others may disagree but that's my experience.

help please as regards my dog

I think HOSTAFAN probably hadn't read the intro fully.  I don't think he meant to offend.  After all he's one of us GW's isn't he,

Oh I forgot to mention 'A year in Provence'  by Peter Mayle.  Ooooohhh the description of the food along the way makes me drool. 

A really touching'll make you cry is 'Bridge  across the Miles'  by Cath someone ? Can't remember surname. It's about a girl from the Midlands who eventually ends up in Vietnam. She becomes a heroine to the street children there. It's heartbreaking.

Bekkie. You snook in while I was typing........I hope you( 1.)Told him where to go, or (2 )had a chuckle.   My money is on number two.  Look at it this way Bek, you must look young enough to have a baby.   Well done with the loss of weight anyway.  You won't want one of my Magnums then ?

Hiya everyone.  Weather is fine here at the moment. Put washing out, rained, took washing in, sun came out. Blow it, it's going on the airer. 

To  everyone I haven't been able to keep track of, I hope everything goes well for you today.


BEAUS.Take it easy. Enjoy the 'rest bit' it won't last long and you'll be back in the swing of it. 

BEKKIE.  Hope you are feeling a little better  and that miraculous' dog of yours  YVESTIE can't have him, you offered him to me first. 

STARGL. I really hope your friend is feeling a bit better. Gently Bentley as they say 

Going to start to cook a big Lamb dinner (chops) with stuffing. Dam, last of my runner beans as well .  Bakewell Tart and Evap milk for pud.  I know, I know hardly anyone likes it in my family either, but oh and myself love it. 

Well, I never knew that!

Artjak. If you like 'Capt Jan' I think you'll like 'Monsoon's gripping tale. 

I will make a point of reading 'Cptn Jan, it souDNS as tho it might be just up my street.

Pottiepam. My OH would probably like 'The Feather Men' he likes that sort of thing, as do I.  Will try to locate a copy.
