Hello Forkers December

We watched the mad fun couple doing up the Chateau, then the Irish family with the English mother. Don't really care for I'm a Celeb.

Was disappointed with Elaine's singing, too.


Glad Rinder went, he's been getting on my nerves for weeks.

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

I really liked Claudia's dress, very pretty, more feminine than usual. First dress I've liked on the presenters. But then I'm over 50

Were you on holiday Victoria? Not ill, I hope.


OH braved the cold yesterday and took down the bean poles.


Much warmer today, 14° this afternoon. Been in the veg garden since we came home from the Christmas fair. Weeded an area where I've heaped 7 barrows of horse manure.  Had to stop because it's getting dark.


OH has mended the GH window which has been wonky for years, it's polycarbonate and it blew off recently.

I have inherited silver too, that gets an annual Christmas clean. Haven't done it yet.


Having the other half of yesterday's fish pie tonight. It was too big.

Dahlias - leaving in!

My soil isn't sandy, it's drained because the garden is terraced on a slope and the beds behind retaining walls are like huge plant pots!

Just come back from the retired Police Horse charity Christmas Fair. Met several people we know and I full of pulled pork baguette, chocolate cake and mulled wine.

Sweeten & improve flavor of tomatoes? (cherry)

Good heavens, where do you live? It's winter here, not tomato planting season. Adding tomato food as the trusses form can improve the flavour.
