HELLO FORKERS! July Edition

What a great husband, Dewdrops. But mine does do vacuuming and washing up.


I do grow Sweet Peas, Obelixx, but sometimes I wonder why. I have a few vases in early summer then it gets to July with temps in the 30s and they start shrivelling up. But I just love the scent.


The only gardening I've done today is watering and picking runner beans. I've found that Firestorm are OK in the heat, the flowers don't drop off so much. 39° forecast for the day after tomorrow, dreading it, think I'll hibernate.

What is your weather like?

Has got hot in Dordogne, 32° today, 36° forecast for tomorrow and 39° the day after. I am dreading it. I like 22°. Garden is already telling me it's not happy.

Wouldn't you have to be ever so tidy to have a robot vacuum cleaner?


My favourite make for cylinder vacuums is Rowenta, but I've heard Miele are good - expensive though.


Too hot outside, suppose I should have been doing HW but I've been reading and looking things up on my laptop.

Of course it is, Philippa! The pokeweed, just couldn't remember that word  Never use that smiley but looks as if it's wearing a Dunce's hat. What is it for? Has it got a cold nose or is it fibbing like Pinocchio?

Looks great pp. What have you done with your slugs and snails? Perfect Hosta. I always cut my mallows right down in the spring, they grow back.
