HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 16/08/2014 at 22:44

We watched a recorded Midsomer Murders, so in a different room from laptop.

DD I think my rotovator is too big for weeding beds. I use it for the Veggie garden in the spring. I don't think it's a good idea for weeds as the stems get wound around it and it chops up roots so they increase and multiply. I weed by hand with fork and trowel in flower beds.

You must have been quite near me today, I'm 20 mins from Périgueux and 25 mins from Hautefort. Have you been to the cave near Tourtoirac? It's on the way to Hautefort from me.

I have 2 woodburners to save on oil bills, but it's a lot of work with logs. Oil here is considerably more expensive than in the UK.

My fennel always bolts, don't think I'll bother again.

Well done Gardengirl. I used to love the shows in our village years ago when I lived in England.

Have gardened, weeded, dead headed, tidied. It was lovely and sunny, I got a bit hot.

Have just been making a taboulé salad with garden veg and herbs for the BBQ we are going to tomorrow chez friends near Riberac. Lunch time.

A Senior Moment.

I was on a 3 hour journey with a friend. We were talking and I didn't notice our exit from the French motorway until we had gone 60kms too far. It was a 4 hour journey!

We went to the Savill garden in April. It poured but they lent us 2 big umbrellas. We were the only people in the garden. I enjoyed it, but I'm probably a bit garden bonkers!

No, OL, you didn't, you didn't say anything to offend me. I'm sure I'd like you in real life. I've met 6 people from forums now and liked all of them.

DD saw you were thinking of rotovators. I have a Honda, it's light and manageable and easy to start. I'm not usually good with pull cords. Not that cheap, but worth it. No, I don't work for them!

Morning all.

Thanks for the PM, Dove, expect you've found the reply.

Which garden are you visiting DD?

Thank you for saying I seem lovely OL, but "seem" ?!!

Have a lovely day at Great Comp, Scroggin. Wish I could come, I've never been there.
