No, PP, I don't iron my underwear either, small and lacey, probably melt it.

I like all vegetables too.

"discumnockerated" now there's a lovely word I haven't heard since first OH died, one of his favourites.

Had a good day today. Did lots of gardening until 3pm then we went out to tea with a new friend (actually met years ago but lost touch) and saw her lovely garden with lots of shrub roses.

Such a warm evening that we ate in the garden, listening to the birds preparing for bed. Pasta with broad beans and mange tout peas from the garden in it with smoked salmon.

I must have been sent to Coventry after my last post so I can go the whole hog and admit that I do ironing every week, sheets and all, though I draw the line at underwear - especially OH's.

Planting a Rambling Rector

Gosh, that is the smallest, most under control, Rambling Rector I have ever seen!

Have been gardening ever since my last post, but we are going out to tea soon so have come in to clean up. Friend we are seeing loves old roses and collects them.

Your poor Mum Yvie, that shouldn't happen in an old people's home.

Hope you feel better soon Obelixx.

I like parsnips in moderation and I love sweet peppers, especially red and orange ones. So versatile in Chinese and Thai cooking, which I love.

I may not be allowed here any more. OH has cleared up my lean to shed and I've been gardening like mad since it stopped raining. Veg garden needs work, but still not too bad. Shall I run away and hide? Do have an excuse though, it's my Charity Strawberry Tea on Saturday. Forecast is rain

Morning all, welcome back Pat.

Ouch Lily P, sounds painful, hope you are OK.

Should be 28° today. The forecast for the weekend has changed yet again. It's now rain on Saturday for my Strawberry Tea and sun and cloud, dry, on Sunday for DD's Open Garden. If it rains I will have to squeeze over 40 people indoors to eat sandwiches and cake, strawberries and cream.

This afternoon, when it should be too hot to garden, we are going to tea with a garden club member to look at her collection of old roses.

I wasn't here early enough! Snap RB! I have parsnips like yours in the end of my veggie garden. We didn't eat them all and I didn't get round to digging them up. Magnificent. Wonder if they'll seed themselves. My perpetual spinach seeded itself last year, it was all over the place.

Had a good lunch with my son and the grandson's, 2 and 1, were adorable.

Was 25° today, have been watering the pots, even though it rained yesterday for an hour or so.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Started weeding and planting upper middle bed, then went to son for the rest of the day. Had a good lunch and the babies were sweet.
