HELLO FORKERS!

Gardengirl, you mentioned those RHS flower shows in London. When I was a nurse years ago at the old Westminster Hospital I used to walk past those RHS Halls often when I worked at the Westminster Children's Hospital or the Gordon in Vincent Square. Just looked at the Google maps, brought back memories.

Strawberries don't always do well when planted again in the same place, but it helps to dig in some compost and manure.

I find that fabric very useful in the veg garden, it lets in water and air keeps in the warmth for early crops, stops the soil drying out in high summer and keeps down weeds. But I hate it in flower beds. The one not to use is sheets of black plastic.

I hope I can join in, but will need an early night as getting up at crack of dawn to cross the Channel and be at son's in west Burgandy by early evening.

Theme should have something to do with love  since it's Valentine's day

So do I  

Thanks for the good wishes. OH has gone to choir practice so we ate early, lemon sole meunière with chips and broad beans (frozen from garden).

Tomorrow we will be eating on the ferry, hope it's hot this time

Happy birthday to Mr. Wonky for tomorrow.

I wish all the other issues could have been sorted first. Sometimes I like to look back over an old thread. If it's shut it will disappear as other newer threads pop up ahead. Wanted to look back over David's sweet pea thread recently and had quite a job finding it. I don't find any difference in the time long threads or short threads take to load.
