Bumping up again.

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.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends - part 2

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.

Thanks Pat.

Earlier when I tried to come on here it said the site was unavailable

Morning all. 

Nora says it will speed things up if the threads don't get so long. I have slow Broadband here in France and I haven't noticed any difference with long or short threads. But I wish they would sort out the other tech problems like avatars, being able to look at earlier pages and PMs first.

Will be packing and loading the car today. England tomorrow, but long drive through France first. Hope rain and winds will stay away.

I have a slow broadband here in France, but now that I've looked at the old and the new Worries and Troubles threads I see that there is no difference with loading and navigating, so I don't really understand what difference it will make.

Thank you, Nora. I found the thread I was looking for, eventually. David K knows loads about sweet peas, there was a long thread that he started, full of advice, and someone was asking about growing sweet peas.
