HELLO FORKERS March 2016 edition

Posted: 13/03/2016 at 08:19

Morning all. Blue sky. Friends coming to lunch after church. Forecast this week is good. Must sow some more seeds and finish the pruning.

We had our cottage in Norfolk surveyed and we had a long written report. The Solicitor wouldn't let us complete until the seller had sorted and repaired a couple of things that the surveyor had noted. There was damp in a wall and it had to be dealt with by a damp expert and we had to visit the house again to approve it before the solicitor was happy.

Lesley, just a simple roast dinner. Slow roast pork wrapped up in foil with red onions and fresh sage, roast potatoes, broccoli, peas and carrots. Gravy made with the pork juices. 2 friends are bringing puds, I hope one of them does her cheesecake, it's scrummy .

Victoria Sponge, are you really transplanting ragwort to the front of your stumpery? You said you hope it is ragwort and not some weed. Ragwort is a horrible poisonous weed that seeds itself like mad.

You can grow all female varieties or pick the male flowers off, but with a lot of the outside ones it doesn't seem to matter.

If you have your own photos in your files on your laptop then click little green oak tree in the bar above your post. It will ask if you want your computer or an external site, select files on your computer and let it guide you. Click upload. Sometimes it takes a little time for your photo to appear, be patient. When photo appears then click save.

Can you help me identify this vine?

Flumpy, one will be 2 in May and the other will be 1 in June, so pretty close in age. The one who is nearly 2 speaks English and French words and can count up to 10 in English. He's so cute with golden curls. His Daddy is my English son and his Mummy is my French DIL.

Sorry, Flumpy, but I had to laugh when Kef said that about the drink and the paper!

I never press ignore buttons, I'm far too curious.

DD, I am going to Kevin's meeting, are you? It's about opening our gardens for the new French NGS scheme - for those who are wondering.

The little grandsons are having their morning sleep.
