Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Have planted out the tomatoes, 8 outside and 7 in the GH, and 6 sweet peppers outside. Dug manure and compost into the planting holes.

Hello all, gave up trying to get onto the site this morning so I've been in the veggie garden planting tomatoes and sweet peppers. Now must do my tax return, hate it.

Have planted 30 runner bean plants. Bit of a fiddle as they are in crosses cut in the weed suppressant fabric, but the ground was well prepared with manure before the fabric went down. Took longer than I thought.

The blue flower is a Scilla Peruviana, I have one. But the leaves are rather floppy, lovely flower though.

Fairygirl, I only have a Canon Ixus, but I've had to change its settings to take smaller photos of the garden to put them on here. But it's a shame for you because you take such superb photos.


Lovely day today. Must go and plant the runner beans when I've had my coffee.

Morning all.
Dove how did you put those photos on here? The photo window doesn't have external photos any more. Or did you put them in your own photo files first?

Mine have quite a lot of white on them. I don't like them very much, but they were free with my plug plant order.

Think you must have forgotten the Night Manager chappie, Tom Hiddleston, or DD wouldn't have dropped off! I certainly wouldn't have done if he'd been there  OH would have liked Darcey Bussell, but he's dropped off in front of David Attenborough. I've just come to the kitchen to get the pud, lemon posset. Hope OH wakes up, it's one of his favourites and he'll be missing Dad' Army, which he loves.


Have fun all.

So...............

I suppose there is deep fat frying, as in a chip pan.

Shame I'm so far away. OH and I are just having an apéritif, Campari (yuk) for OH, sweet sherry for me.


Don't think my figure fits hot pants anymore. But wouldn't mind being in a lift with Poldark.  RB, Verdun's only jealous because he hasn't got brooding eyes like Aidan's.


Will be watching The Hollow Crown. I asked OH what we could watch before that and he said we could gaze into each other's eyes.


I hope you feel less rough tomorrow, Fairy. All that fresh air must be doing you good.
