HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 19/08/2014 at 09:19

Morning all.

Going shopping. Not clothes , groceries and food or dog will be hungry. I thought this week was free to garden but it isn't anymore. Going to son's tomorrow to look after his baby. To give them a break, baby cries when not being held which is getting quite difficult. I'm afraid I let my babies cry longer then they went to sleep.

Clearing a garden

Good heavens! When you buy topsoil in France it's pot luck. Mine for the veg. garden was clay, full of stones, bindweed and bramble roots.

I'm afraid I wasn't very encouraging at the beginning because it sounded as though you were destroying a garden, but I must congratulate you on what you have done. You are creating a new garden suitable for your family's needs and you've worked very hard.

What's the star in your garden right now

Yes it does, but Etoile Violette is in the area where the deer eat roses.

I'm very late. We went to help a friend with his garden this afternoon and ended up being invited to dinner in a lovely restaurant.  Haven't read all the posts yet, but did see DD's rose buried under bindweed and nettles. made me feel better, I have some like that too!

Morning all. Only 7° at 9am.

Committee meeting this morning then seeing a friend this afternoon, may help stack his logs.

Glad that's not my hedge. Don't fancy the hedge cutting.

I will/I won't grow that again

Love fennel, so I thought I'd give it another try, always bolts - it's bolted. They have such lovely fat ones in the supermarket.

Carrots and runner beans are great this year.

Yes, that's familiar. Sounds like every dog I've had when they get old.

We loved Trebah too, went in 2011. It rained, but it didn't matter. Sheltered under the huge gunneras!
