Good Evening FORKERS

Hi Sue, I've seen them at Christmas and they are expensive. Otherwise I haven't noticed as not looking for that sort of thing.

Afternoon all. Guests all gone. Poured with rain so good thing I cleaned the dining room! Would have been nice outside, but we needed rain so badly. Didn't BBQ, fried the chicken in the kitchen. Cold outside, car said it was 12° on the way back from church in the rain.

Mrs. Garden, did Ryan Air fly without you or was the ferry cancelled?

I use a laptop, Windows 7. I don't know what you have Mistertiler. I put the photo in my photo files on the laptop. Then you click the little oak tree symbol on the bar above the post you are writing. Click on "select", it will go to the files on your computer and you choose your photo. Then you click "upload", you will have to wait a bit while it does it. Eventually your photo will appear and you click "save". Then your photo will go onto your post. It will look very big but when you click on "submit reply" it will turn out OK.

Been very busy, not gardening except for watering pots and digging potatoes. 10 coming for lunch tomorrow, including us. It's after church so have to prepare in advance. Having a BBQ, so now chicken is marinading, Tandoori and herb and lemon. Selection of salads and a hot veg, courgettes, onions and mushrooms fried up together.

Cleaned dining room, even the windows (in case it rains) and washed kitchen floor. Made fish pie for supper.

Fairygirl, thank you for the recipe, that's great. Copied it and printed it.

Monty's garden looked pretty big to me, does he know what a normal garden looks like? I was glad he did penstemon cuttings. I've done some and I wanted to do some later and he said up to end of September.

Made loads of tomato, onion and basil purée for freezer for soups and stews in the winter.

Just watched Doc Martin, glad they showed the last episode again as I'd missed it.

Fairygirl showed this cake on Morning Forkers (in the afternoon!!). I think it looks wonderful. Just wanted to know if you made it yourself FG. Would there be a recipe by any chance? Please

Well done, Blackest.

There's a lot of chat on here this morning! Cloudy today, would love some rain.

fidgetbones, you have all the same birds as me. I feed them in the winter, but not the summer as I want the natural balance with birds eating insects etc. But sometimes I feel my garden is a wildlife park, not mine anymore!

Had toast and Marmite. Off in a minute to weed.

I was lucky as about 12 years after he died I met a nice English man living in France whose wife had died some years before. So now we are both in France, so are my 4 children and 6 grandchildren. But I also love England and I still miss it. But I was lucky and lived in the country in England, also in an old farmhouse with a garden.

Why do you have to be ruthless? My clothes aren't worn out in a year. I love discovering something I haven't worn for a year that still fits. I have about 18 pairs of socks. If you go on holiday in the winter then you may need 14 pairs and you don't want to wash when you are on holiday. With jeans I do as Nutcutlet says and eventually they go in the bin.
