Good Evening FORKERS

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.

Yes folks - back of five on a Friday of a bank holiday weekend - the spammers doth return....

Anyone for cake instead? 

Chocolate fudge icing, cream and choc ganache with bits of choc sprinkled on top....

Fat free of course

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.

How hot is very hot to all you folks who live in England? 32° in Dordogne today. No rain for over 2 weeks, then we had a huge storm and before that the rain was in June. At least we had a good start as it rained all the time in April and May!

Blackest, I'm the last person to ask. Can never bring myself to throw clothes away. They all have memories or I will fit into them again when I've lost weight. Bought a new wardrobe for my bedroom, now full, and the spare room wardrobe is filling up too. I would keep all of them, never know when they might come in handy, especially the socks! Just throw the ones with holes.

Wasn't her fault, she was answering Bev!But it's just occurred to me that Verdun also posted this morning! Naughty Verdun.

Perhaps I haven't watered enough, but I've grown tomatoes for years. It has been hot this year in the late 20s and early 30s, need rain badly. I live in Dordogne, France.
