HELLO FORKERS March 2016 edition

Morning all. Sunny.

Going to local tourist town today to put up posters for concert and have lunch, think I said that last night

Thought I'd lost my old dog last night. Took him out for bedtime wee and he ran off into the paddock in the dark. Didn't come when I called him. But he turned up at the kitchen door 10 minutes later. He's getting a bit senile as well as not being well.

I wish we could be on summer time all the time. Don't like those dark winter evenings. The EDF said we would use less electricity on summer time.

Good heavens! 17 PMs! Sounds as though someone was stalking you, Clarice. Hope all is OK now.

Was a lovely day, gardened and sowed seeds. OH is taking me out to lunch tomorrow in a pretty Dordogne town. We are going to put out posters there for his choir's concert.

I live in Dordogne and when we started the veggie garden well over 20 years ago we removed barrowloads of stones, limestone, because it was just impossible. Gave up and had 2 lorry loads of topsoil delivered, but it wasn't very good quality, and a farm trailer of manure. I still pick stones out.

I cut mine back to 2 - 3 feet and it grows to about 8 - 10 feet every summer. Just done it.

It was a lovely day today. I sowed tomatoes and more broad beans in pots. And I sowed petunias, Cosmos Antiquity, and Didiscus. Then I did some pruning.

Unsure about growing this climber

Oooh, that is just how I want mine to look.

Deer eating our privet-tips to repair and control?

I have horses and electric fences and a hornbeam hedge. The electric fence doesn't stop the deer, they jump it and eat the hornbeam hedge.

New turf on old flowerbed

You will need to get perennial weeds out. Grass doesn't do that well where there is deep shade but you can buy grass seed mixes for shade. If it's always damp too you may have a problem with moss.
