I like digestives buttered too. Shame about the calories.

Went to watch the GC makeover programme. Thought it was on ITV so I could watch the beginning that I missed on +1, but, bother, it was on BBC 2 so now I've missed the beginning. The BBC ads for I player really bug me. Can't get it abroad. Someone told me about  installing a computer thingy which lets you get it, but my anti-virus wouldn't let me. In fact watching English TV abroad is illegal. Wish they'd sort something out.

Front garden very uninteresting

That's OK Becks, understood. This fills up so quickly. When you answer someone it's a page or 2 away!

Just want to clear up 1 thing. When I was on page 3 I was wearing a blue pullover and jeans.

I now understand why Geoff felt a little rattled by the other forkers page. I think the name was unfortunate, but seems OK otherwise. Big  hugs Geoff

Brumball, why did you choose a name so like Brumbull? Had you not noticed? I expect you are very nice, gardeners usually are, but it may be muddling for some.

OH and I had a slight misunderstanding yesterday. Haven't looked to see if there is a full moon! We usually get on very well Where there are lots of people with different views and characters there are bound to be some misunderstandings. Let's hope it all calms down soon.

Hello everyone, I think this thread is forming well and has more gardening talk than "Fork Handles", but I can see what Geoff means. I think there should be this thread but it would probably have been better to have called it something else, rather than "forkers". That is a bit special for the Fork Handles thread which is more of a  lighthearted banter theme that has been going for some time. It's a bit confusing to have two such similar names for two different threads  with different characters.

Back again, gosh you wrote a lot since I did! Next I'm going to look at the fake Forkers thing, which I noticed this morning but didn't have time to look at properly.

Lots of talk about Figrat's back passage, I used to be a nurse so you can imagine how I feel about it!!! I have a trundly thingy like Figrat too, very useful for weeding when I'm kneeling on my mat.

Had chicken and leek (garden) pie and now OH and friend who's staying (who sings and plays piano) have gone off to choir together. Peace, and a lot of catching up to do.

But I did get time this afternoon to go to GH (poured rain) and pot up 10 dahlias and sow more French marigolds, zinnias, nasturtiums and asters (for veg garden for cutting for in house).

I think Jon Cob may be back on fine green beans. Fish4card.

Now I'm going back to read all the posts I've missed here!

Fine Green beans in the shops

Fine green beans, French beans, string beans (American) are all the same thing.

fish4card sounds familiar.
