Good Evening FORKERS

I know it's not real, it's fiction, but it's based on history. It's a good story and the people seem real. Lots of awful things happened in history and are still happening today, but so did good things. Does that mean we shouldn't watch programmes like "The Tudors" or "The White Queen" or "Downton Abbey"?

Thank you , Zoomer. I'd never heard of the Savill garden, so I've been looking it up. It's part of Windsor Great Park and it looks lovely. Here is a Google pic.

You have obviously never watched it. Now I know my place (along with over 10 million others I think I'll stick to gardening threads in future.

Glad you are going to ring the doc tomorrow, Stacey. Don't put it off. I went to Corfu for my Honeymoon in 1973. It was super.

What pretty tulips in the above photo.

Watched Downton Abbey tonight. Love it.

What did I do wrong? My bit (above) is included in the quote. Should have a blue background.

Heather, I only use Roma for making tomato sauce. I fry onions, peel the Romas, add to the onions and cook until a thick sauce. Then I freeze it in small plastic bags and ice cube trays to use in dishes for winter. My Roma are fleshy, not watery and don't have many seeds.

Lovely, beds still full of colour.

Apple picking and storing

They get sweeter during storage. Keep an eye on the ones on the trees, after a bit the birds, wasps and hornets may discover them.

Will grow Sungold tomatoes next year, love the sweet flavour and they cracked less than Gardener's Delight. Will grow mangetout peas again, they were great. Beetroot, Detroit, were a total failure. Don't grow brassicas any more, from this year, they never work. Think my topsoil is too thin, limestone rock underneath. The pink flowered Toscana strawberries were very pretty but the flavour wasn't a patch on the white flowered ones and they were sharp.

Will grow Cosmos next year as Verdun explained what to do to make them bushy. Will grow more annuals from seed and buy fewer plug plants, especially as OH has given me a new cold frame which is just outside the kitchen, near a power point.

Won't ever grow chillis, don't like them, neither the flavour, nor the heat. Can't see what the fuss is about. Apparently there are chilli festivals in the UK, can't see that happening in France.
