Have made fruit cake and lemon drizzle cake and a loaf of brown bread with seeds in it. Going to adorable granddaughter's Baptism this weekend, 4 hours drive, South East of Orleans. All my 4 children & spouses and 6 grandchildren will be there and DIL's family.

Had email notifucations this morning, except for "Morning Forkers", then it didn't say last unread post.

That's lovely, Mattie. So full of Michaelmas Daisies, I had a look at their gallery too.

I will/I won't grow that again

I grew courgettes called "Romanesco" this year as it said on the packet that they are one of the best tasting. Never again! They are the blandest courgette I have ever tasted.

You can put grated courgettes into cakes and they are nice and moist, you could probably do it with marrows too. I add grated courgette, chopped apple, ginger, lemon zest, cinnamon and sultanas to a basic cake mix.

First Greenhouse and a thermometer

I have a maximum minimum one which is invaluable, need to know how cold it was in the night and how hot it is during the day. Got it in a supermarket in France several years ago.

I'm not Paxman but I've got a few questions pretty please...

Mrs. Garden  I usually find my secateurs in winter when the beds are bare! I have 4 pairs, 2 are missing at the moment  Of course, it could be OH!

I'll confirm that honeysuckle can be cut hard back. Trouble is, I don't always get round to it then there is a messy load of dead black twigs in the middle.

I know it's morning, but just want to say that Dove has put the perfect avator for Verdun on Morning Forkers, so go and have a look.

That's right, Boss Hogg didn't have a dog, but Rosco Coltrane owned Flash.

I have a Vitex agnus castus on a South facing wall, so it is sheltered. It is in fact frost hardy, but may need winter protection. Though I don't protect mine and it's stayed alive through the cold Dordogne winters, up to -17°. It's lovely.
