Hello Forkers - March Thread

Posted: 09/03/2017 at 09:48

Morning all.


Hire car people had got the booking wrong, they changed the airport but not the date. Has taken ages trying to get hold of them.


Odd job man has come to put in new fence posts in the summer paddock. I went up there with him to discuss it and saw that a lot of the roof of the horses' summer shelter had blown off.


Going off to get some milk and more fence posts.

I thought I was old fashioned but people here like what I like! I don't like the modern Sherlock either, too confusing for my elderly brain


One thing I'm enjoying is MU's style of writing, makes me laugh  So does RB.

That's coming on really well, Wonky.


OH has left the tree for the moment. Odd job man says he's coming to mend fences tomorrow and he'll have a look at the tyre. But OH pumped it up and it hasn't gone down yet, fingers crossed. The bottom half of the tree is still there, just leaning a bit. It's in a wilder shrubbery sort of area in front of a paddock. I'll probably leave it there, the tree was huge and there are others there too.

That was an interesting post Iain.


They are stopping the sale of glyphosate in France and my local hypermarket now has it in a locked cupboard. But they have started selling pelargonic acid weed killer. I bought a bottle, I wonder if it will work.

Yuk, I could never eat a scabby kids head no matter how hungry I was


I hope OH is feeling better RB.


Our flight Bergerac/Stansted has been cancelled so not going to Norfolk tomorrow. But clever old OH had already booked another one from Bordeaux just in case. So we are going after all! But on Saturday. Now I'll have a bit more time to prune another rose and do some fossicking.

Our flight has been cancelled because of the strike. But all is not lost because OH booked another flight  from Bordeaux on Saturday morning, back on Friday evening. Changing the hire car was more expensive as he'd booked the one from Stanstead on a January special offer and there was a cancellation fee. But at least we are going! House sitter gets back on Saturday and can stay a day later so that's OK too.

Hope it's a good game GWRS.


OH went out to clear up the broken in two by the wind pine tree but the garden tractor has a puncture. He can't get the wheel off.  Was going to ask our log man who does odd jobs, but he can't come to do the fencing this afternoon after all.


I hope the medicines help you feel better Lily P.


Lyn has been around on gardeny threads. I'm still in touch with her.

Rotavator vs Chillington Fork

Posted: 08/03/2017 at 11:09

I have a rotovator which I find invaluable for my large veg garden every spring, but the perennials weeds should be removed first. I find it makes a good tilth for planting into and gets rid of small annual weeds.
