HELLO FORKERS!

Just had coffee and carrot cake Before that I was finishing laying the paving stones on the 2 side paths in the veggie garden. If I do the main path I must get another 50 pavers. They are so heavy!

Before that I was painting my new shelf, for over the radiator under the sitting room window, with varnish. It's oak. Will be temporary home for my seedlings as French houses don't have window sills. Now going off to do 2nd coat.

Pea and bean seeds keep for several years. Parsnips and carrots don't!

Help for flooded gardens

Artjak, what a great idea, what a lovely person you must be.

Wish I could help, but not very practical living where I live, France.

I haven't started mine yet, usually raining too hard. Ok until well into March to prune.

Greenhouse base

Posted: 14/02/2014 at 14:27

Mine is on an aluminium base that was supplied with the greenhouse. It has fixations like big tent hooks and where each one is I had to dig a hole, fill it with concrete and put the big tent hook thingy into the concrete when it was wet so that it's set in.  The aluminium greenhouse then screwed onto the base.

I have shelves and a potting bench on one side, wooden (treated) pavers up the middle and earth on the other side that I grow things in, tomatoes etc.

This is a daffodil wood in March which turns into a bluebell wood in April, near where my daughter lives in the North of France.

Good morning all. Lots of things I'd love Dove, Marmite, peanut butter, a good wander around Waitrose, my favourite supermarket, but I'm too far away

Panda and Clari, those things jumped into your baskets because they are very good buys, you are such clever girls. I wonder if Aldis in France have heated propagators at that price. Perhaps I'll have a look tomorrow!

Have you sown any seeds yet this year?

Posted: 13/02/2014 at 18:38

I've sown more since last post, gazanias and 3 sorts of petunias. The Busy-Lizzies and Lobelias have germinated. They are tiny.
