Asparagus growing early

Posted: 17/01/2016 at 23:22

I'd leave them. You aren't meant to harvest them in the first year anyway. More will grow later. Leave them too.

Any tips for growing rice?

New business opportunity, David. Rent out ice skates and serve mulled wine.

DD - should have gone to my son, the dentist! But I hope the infection clears up quickly, horrid when things aren't right with your teeth.

Topbird, I looked up the link you sent on Suffolk churches and found the Norfolk one in our village. Looks very interesting. We couldn't visit it though because we weren't there on a Sunday and it's closed in the winter months.

They have changed the forecast since this morning, just looked again, rain instead of snow.

Lesley, M&S delivered the bedding just when they said they would and IKEA delivered the bed - all very comfy, but the towels will be better once they've been washed. Washing machine is still in Eastbourne until the removal in early February.

We've been out all day. Lunched with good friends, lots of chatting. A lot of fog on the roads. Was -4° this morning.

Forecast says we may have snow tomorrow, just when I've booked the car in for the Contrôle Technique (MOT).

Looked up that brasserie Dove. Sounds normal to me because it's French!

Thanks Fairygirl, gosh that looks chilly!

Off to cook salmon etc for dinner.

Hello all. We are back in France. Just as cold here as in Norfolk. But the cottage is warmer than this house because it's smaller and has low ceilings and efficient gas heating.

I hope Dove and Topbird have had good days out.

Hello Ginger.

I still have a cold, the one that started on 1st Jan., much better, but coughing.

We went to that pub in the summer, having found it on Google, but it was shut. We thought we'd try again another time. No time now, back to France tomorrow.

Morning all. We now have Internet in the cottage! Have read back a bit, but there is a lot. Glad Chicky passed her medical and well done Lesley for the decorating. Hope the funeral was bearable Topbird, glad you managed the journey in the awful weather. Glad Hosta is on the mend.

Weather was awful yesterday, snow in the morning, must have been same as Dove' we aren't that far away. Went to Norwich, bought two bedside table lamps from IKEA and two little wooden bedside tables from a wood furniture place the other side of Norwich, in the sale.

ate in the Chinese in Diss last night, sleet and howling gale on the way home. 

This morning it's sunny, but there is ice on the drive.

Morning all. Hope the medical goes well, Chicky.

Feels really early, but this would be nearly 9am in France, so it isn't. 

Hope Wonky is feeling better today. 

Can't the Verdun and Clarice post, I'm a curious, nosy person
