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.

HELLO FORKERS!

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.

Morning all.

It may have been me asking Dove about Snow in a PM that started that one off. So please don't be short with Dove, Verdun, it wasn't thoughtless of her to ask. Snow isn't a new poster and I thought I recognised some previous posts, but didn't associate them with the name. I remember when posters changed their names for occasions like Christmas and I found it very confusing, but that isn't the case here. I just didn't want to put my foot in anything having been away a bit recently.

Where did I go wrong?

I only answered the bit you asked about, why they were misshapen. But parsnips are left in the ground and used as needed, as BLT says. My 2nd frost this morning and I haven't dug a parsnip yet. I dig up the last ones, if they haven't all been eaten, in early spring and freeze them.

Lovely, Wintersong and Verdun. What a lot of colour you both still have!

Sounds as though you've already done that for them! Perhaps you ought to present your bill!

What a shock you've all had, hope your OH is OK, best place at the moment is hospital to get it sorted, good that the docs said not to worry. Hugs.xx
