HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 16/10/2015 at 09:53

Morning all.

It may have been me asking Dove about Snow in a PM that started that one off. So please don't be short with Dove, Verdun, it wasn't thoughtless of her to ask. Snow isn't a new poster and I thought I recognised some previous posts, but didn't associate them with the name. I remember when posters changed their names for occasions like Christmas and I found it very confusing, but that isn't the case here. I just didn't want to put my foot in anything having been away a bit recently.

Where did I go wrong?

I only answered the bit you asked about, why they were misshapen. But parsnips are left in the ground and used as needed, as BLT says. My 2nd frost this morning and I haven't dug a parsnip yet. I dig up the last ones, if they haven't all been eaten, in early spring and freeze them.

Lovely, Wintersong and Verdun. What a lot of colour you both still have!

Sounds as though you've already done that for them! Perhaps you ought to present your bill!

As Liri says, the cutting back should thicken it up. You are allowed to cut what is overhanging your garden, but what you cut off belongs to your neighbour.

Big dead tree

I grew a wisteria up a dead pine tree once, had to use a lot of manure, a few years later the trunk rotted at the base and fell over!

Did you manure the ground? Have you got stones? Is the soil very heavy? Is the soil shallow? Did you thin out the plants to give them room to develop? Did they get enough water? Can be tricky blighters!! At least you got them to germinate, can be difficult!

It's my birthday
