Asparagus

Posted: 21/01/2016 at 22:01

How newly planted are your asparagus? If it's a new bed I would leave them alone. If an established bed I expect they will stop if the weather gets cold. But I feel if you keep cutting them it will exhaust them. I grew asparagus for years, but they never grew this early.

HELLO FORKERS!

We've been out for the evening, a French social thingy, quite fun. Less fun for OH who finds French hard.

Glad you like your new floor Wonky.

I sent RB a PM, don't have her email, haven't had a reply yet, but I only sent it this morning.

My Mum had a Singer with a handle to turn. It wasn't as easy as the treadle one at school. There were electric ones too. I wasn't going to say , but then thought, why not, I would have said if I'd got a lower mark, I got distinction in needlework.

Morning all. Frosty.

Looking forward to using my new sewing machine. Went to buy a zipper foot yesterday and came back with a sewing machine instead. I've always hated my very basic Singer. I bought it when the lovely wedding present Singer from my Mum wore out and couldn't afford a better one at the time. The Singer shop in town has closed down so bought a Janome.

That Wisteria wallpaper is gorgeous, Hosta, but too elegant for my old farmhouse. Most of the downstairs walls are rough plastered so have to be painted, some walls are bare stone.

I don't think I always know when I've got the planting wrong. People talk about what looks good with what but I tend to bung plants in where there's a space and the growing conditions are OK.

Link works, have signed and sent to several friends. I have a friend who was expecting to receive her pension for the years she had worked when she reached 60. She had stopped working early because of ill health and was finding it hard to make ends meet. Then she got a letter to say she would get her pension at 62 instead, which meant two more years of hardship. I had that letter too, but I wasn't in such an impecunious state.

Morning all.

Lily P, Monty has a new puppy called Nell. I posted a photo in December.

Taking my car in for a ball joint and another try for the MOT. Going shopping, using OH's car. Need zipper foot for sewing machine as well.

Verdun, haven't you put on weight yet with all those donuts? Well, we'll see when GW returns and you're on it.

David I've read your post too and KEF's and Dove's so I would like to echo what they said. Shows how uncomplaining you are as we had no idea. Hugs from me too.

Have made 10 jars of marmalade. Amazing how much a bag of Seville oranges makes. Forgot how many to take, was half that amount last year.

Good thread Flowerlover, I like hearing about people's gardening experiences.

In 2012 I started a thread about how people started gardening. Here it is, if you are interested.  http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/the-potting-shed/why-did-you-all-start-gardening/69612.html
