Hello Forkers - May Edition

Obelixx, I saw on other thread about your being kept waiting at the solicitor's. I'm afraid that is fairly normal in France. People joke about it here. Must be something to do with the laid back lifestyle!

Off to the amazing hardware shop in small local town. Wish they had that sort of shop in France.

Tennis, Dove? Is your shoulder completely better now? Doc says I will never play tennis again

Morning all. Just as chilly here as at Dove's.

Friends are coming to stay for a couple of days. Must deal with the guest room. Going out to a local pub for dinner this evening.

I think a foot tall is big enough, but I would be more afraid of frosts than slugs, bearing in mind recent weather. I wouldn't plant them out until mid-May, but I suppose it depends where you live. Look up some ways of keeping slugs and snails away.

I think it is most likely to be frost damage, not much you can do, it should make some new growth by itself. After it has made new growth the shrivelled bits should dry up and fall off, but if you don't like the look of it you can tidy it up at that stage.

Some varieties are meant to be tall and some varieties are short. Pinching out makes plants bushier.

Back from "the City" (Norwich). OH bought some weird teas in a specialist shop and some trousers in M&S. I bought a selection of English reading books for daughter 2 (lives in France) to teach her children to read in English. We also went to the jeweller where OH bought my eternity ring to make it bigger as my fingers are swelling with arthritis. Then we went to look at The Plantation Garden near the RC Cathedral. Passed the theatre so OH bought tickets for Nabucco next Tuesday  

Didn't have lunch, well just coffee and cake, so Moroccan chicken is now in the oven.

Tomorrow friends are coming to stay for a couple of days.
