IF you never had GARDENING ........................

Posted: 13/10/2013 at 16:17

Apart from when I was single and nursing in London (heck of a long time ago), I've always had a garden, even when I was a child I hada patch in my parents' garden. But I would probably have more time to ride my horse and I would probably paint watercolours, another thing I did when I was younger. Now I'm older everything seems to take longer.

HELLO FORKERS!

Was going to take photo of the choc cake in previous post       "Lovely lunch, one young mum with a baby brought a huge chocolate cake covered with Maltesers. Yum" but it went so fast this was all I took!! Don't know what the red balls were, my bit only had Maltesers and grated chocolate.

Crikey, what a lot of posts! I went out to Harvest Festival lunch and pages have been written. No wonder site went funny after Matty's post, it couldn't cope!

Lovely lunch, one young mum with a baby brought a huge chocolate cake covered with Maltesers. Yum

Hopeless weekend for gardening, poured and poured.

MORNING FORKERS

I also suggested one thread at least twice, but no one was keen so courage failed me.

Also, the thread that broke off and went elsewhere were nice people and they let me in with no trouble when they used this site. They have been unfairly critised in the past. It was just clashes of personality.

Yellow Cucumbers

Posted: 13/10/2013 at 15:08

It may well be why mine are yellow, had so many, couldn't pick them all. Had a very slow start as 5 of my six plants died, Telegraph - thought it was a greenhouse variety. The one that survived was planted outside to see what would happen. It was the most prolific cucumber I have ever grown! Then in June I just sowed Marketmore seeds wherever there were gaps in the veg garden and there have been lots of late cucumbers. But it has only been 3° at night several times recently. 

What's the star in your garden right now

At the moment the rain is the star of my garden, watering it all. Pouring for 2 days.

No expert, do you live abroad? I was always assigned to Tower Hamlets along with everyone else who lives abroad. I've now been changed to Wyre Forest, never heard of it. I live in Dordogne. They say they can't change it.

Agapanthus help please

I would split it up in Spring too. The middle may need cutting out and throwing away. Replant the healthy outside bits.

What new flower seeds are you going to grow in 2014

I normally buy plug bedding plants from a mail order firm but next year I thought I'd grow more from seed. I was in the big garden centre in Newhaven in September and bought lots, including the Ladybird poppies we'd seen when we visited Great Dixter in June. They looked stunning. Bought mustard and cress too as they don't sell it in France then I gave it to my grandson last weekend. Must get some more in November when we go back to the UK.

We had steak Diane (very 70s! yum) and a warming bottle of red. Rained all day.
