HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 11/10/2013 at 23:18

Hello Bev, glad you found us over here.

So many posts, taken me ages to catch up and now it's bedtime. Been quite busy today. Nearly didn't get to the garage in time to pick up repaired car. Local farmer rang to say the horses were in his field a kilometre away. It was full of lush grass, unlike my fields. The electic fence is faulty, but they've never gone off like that before.

Glad Punkdoc liked my idea of January.

Hello, Brumbull, haven't heard from you for ages. What have you been doing?

Good Evening FORKERS

Seems to me it's not cheaper after all. I've never used it though.

I wonder if slugs have got my 2 year old Montana. It flowered well this spring, then we had dry summer and it was fine but  it collapsed in September and looks dead. It rained in September.

Punkdoc, January is that lovely time of year when the snowdrops are starting to poke up and you are sitting in front of the fire (or if you haven't a fire then in a sleeping bag) on a comfy sofa, mug of hot chocolate (or glass of whisky!) at hand, looking at plant catalogues and planning what to plant and drawing plans for the veggie garden.

Morning all. Only 2° here in Dordogne. The Busy-Lizzies say it's abit cold and they look a bit unhappy - just when they were flowering their socks off.

Got to take car into garage, boot lock is stuck, needs changing. It's an estate car and I need lots of potting compost for the winter pots and troughs. Planted 5 troughs so far with wallflowers (from my seeds), pansies and violas. My bellis daisies are all coming on and will need planting soon.

MORNING FORKERS

Pennies, the chat thread was in 2 places so now it's been changed to one, simpler. It's called "Hello Forkers".

Depends a bit on the bulbs though. Tulips should be planted later than daffodils. I don't plant them until November. Just planted a load of daffodils in the grass.

Is it time....unification of evening and morning FORKERS?

I suggested this a little while ago but met with opposition so dropped the subject. So, obviously I would prefer it. Have just been looking at it, lots of response already.
