No green arrows on Morning Forkers

Posted: 26/05/2013 at 21:50

Frequently I don't get a green arrow (indicating where you are in the thread) on Morning Forkers, normally I woudn't mind, except this thread is pretty long. I get this arrow on all other threads and mostly they work, though not always

garjobo, can you upload some photos? My builder and I put up a greenhouse last spring, so I know a tiny bit; but other people who know more would be able to help, I think, if they could see what is happening.

What did you do in your garden today?

Nut, what happened that the garden got out of hand, were you busy/unwell?

Today I was working, so all I did was 7.00 to 8.00 water from the water butt all the new veg that have been planted out, then...discovered a demijohn of pear wine from 2011 (no pears in 2012!) that I did not know I had, so sat until 9.00pm with a glass or two of rather good wine admiring the veg bed.

Today I feel so happy....

P, wow, 60! 5' wing span! Did you see 'The Birds', did it feel like that?

On a very different note, (no pun intended, well perhaps a bit) 'my' lovely blackbird was doing his verbal email from the telegraph pole near the veg end of the garden where I was sitting; I am only a slightly trained singer, but the variety of sounds that he can make and the variety of tunes that he comes up with really impresses me.

New EU law to block gardeners collecting and growing from their own seeds.

G1l, the local ladies sell local stuff at the local market, are they revolutionaries? I DO hope so

HH, you will NEVER need to grow them from seed again; but don't worry about invasion, they are so easy to pull up

Zoomer, it is a tunnel! Or it will be if the sun keeps shining

We have to see pics of your's!

What are wooden latts? I am primarily a visual person, so written descriptions of a structure make my brain turn to mashed potatoes.

Figrat, brill idea getting cheap ready made arches.

FairyG, the colour is quite dull really and reminds me of deadly nightshade; have never been keen on pink/red/purple, I'm much more of a blue/ yellow /orange person

I have pea shingle around a lot of mat forming plants; it doesn't stop them at all.
