HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 17/10/2015 at 12:20

Thank you for letting us know, DD. If you need anything just pick up the phone.

Don't blame you punkdoc. It looked quite grey and depressing here at 8ish. OH went back to sleep and I read my book and drank coffee in bed. But sun is coming out now.

Morning all.

Jo, thank you, some nice looking recipes there.

Must prepare the bedrooms for granddaughter (6) and grandson (4) who are coming to stay next week. School holidays.

I've been making plant supports like that for years, since Alan Titchmarsh did it on GW, so much cheaper. I only use one plank of wood. Posted it on the forum once. That was a stunning garden, one person couldn't possibly do all that clipping.

Pruning

I prune roses in February/March. Gardeners World magazine said recently that climbing roses can be pruned in the autumn. I'm not good at pruning honeysuckle, tend to let it get too big then chop it down when it bugs me.

Good that the flat is lovely though. You are so early to bed and early to rise Dove, I'm just the opposite!

Didn't make the chips, lily, thanks to Findus! I have potatoes in the garden but they make soggy chips. Don't know why as they roast really well. The French don't seem to do fish in batter, it's always in breadcrumbs. OH likes batter. Wish it was low calorie.

My garden is in a sorry state now. 2nd frost this morning, -4°, dahlias, salvia Amistad, begonias in pots etc. all gone flop.

Pennisetum needs winter protection, I lost my mature plants one winter when I left them planted in a flower bed.

Have had fish and chips and runner beans picked before the frost got them. Bother, was hoping chips counted as one of the 5 a day. Runner beans must count even if they've got butter on them!

Glad DD's got the meeting to go to. Was going to ring her. Not good to be on her own at such a time.

Have shifted 10 barrows of manure from the paddock to the veg garden and removed 2 barrows of weeds from the veg garden to the heap. Outdoor tomatoes, sweet peppers and courgettes are blackened by the frost.

How irritating lily, it's been ages that your PMs don't work. I could give you my email address if I knew how. Maybe one of the other forkers could act as a go-between?

DD, if you need any practical help, today, tomorrow or Sunday afternoon then let me know.

I must get outside and do something, instead of sitting in the kitchen. But it was -4° and frosty this morning and only 3° at midday when I went to the Post Office. Sunny, though.
