HELLO FORKERS!

Just watched programme about feeding dogs, but it didn't tell me the things I wanted to know. Like the interior design programme that's on every evening at the moment.

Today finished mending horse fence and it all works, hurray! Went to buy more electric ribbon only to find that the farm supplies place I go to has closed down. Been going there for over 20 years. Found some elsewhere but more expensive. Then went to supermarket.

Sleep well all.

PS Lizzie - we bought a gizmo that plugs in the wall and extends the broadband signal to the parts of the house it didn't reach before (we got fed up of teenage girls perched on the stairs as it was the only place they could get connected) - i was sceptical, but it works wonders.  So now i can watch tv and browse too. Useful when the footies on (which seems almost every night at the moment)

 

I have a gizmo in the wall in the kitchen. The box is in the study. This house is a huge old French farmhouse with thick stone walls. Bought it when 4 children were young and family from England came to stay, then I did B&B when children left home. Need another gizmo for sitting room, but man in computer shop said you could only have one.

I always miss all the evening chat as I go and watch TV in sitting room, no signal for laptop, thick stone walls. But neither ketchup or brown sauce, fresh tomatoes with bacon and gravy (not Bisto) with sausages, except at breakfast when it's tomatoes with sausages.

At least it didn't rain too much today, pouring now though. I sloshed through the mud and bashed in 7 fence posts that had gone wobbly or were only held up by electric ribbon and replaced insulators only to find b****y fence still isn't working. I replaced half or it last autumn, will have to replace the other half tomorrow. Bother, and I'm going out to lunch tomorrow.

I grew some Lady Christl potatoes in 2012 as they are first earlies and I was growing Charlotte which is slightly later. But, having read lots of good reviews I wasn't very pleased with them, Charlotte cropped better and I could hardly taste the difference.

Grew a French early this year, Amandine, but forgot I'd planted them so didn't harvest early enough so Charlotte was still better! That is the trouble with being over 27!

Bone meal is a slow release fertiliser which needs to break down in the soil before the plants can use it, the finer it is ground up the quicker it is ready for the plants. If you buy it with fish and blood in it they will act first before the bone meal is ready so it is a long acting organic fertiliser.

Morning all.

Very windy and rainy last night. Some of the wooden fence posts have rotted and are only held up by the electric ribbon, so my job today is bashing in fence posts in the wet and the mud before the horses get out. Won't be a fun day.

Rose questions now I've sorted the begonias :)

I'd go for Wollerton Old Hall instead of Claire Austin. Someone I know said CA is floppy and the petals fall off very quickly, gets battered in the rain. I don't actually know WOH, but they say it is very scented. An English friend said it's very healthy.

I'd go for Munstead Wood too, brother in law has it. Looks a bit like Falstaff which I have and so does BIL.
