HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 17/08/2014 at 19:39

After church we went to friends for a BBQ, there were 16 of us, lots of food, wine (but it was my turn to drive so went steady) and chatter. Enjoyed it. Came home and it was 7pm already (French time). Watered all the pots.

There was a thread here where people complained about Vanmeuwen.

Funny, when I hovered mouse over Lily it said she'd sent 13519 posts, but when I went to her posts it said 5000 and something.

Gosh, that was a big space! Probably a problem with the site.

We watched a recorded Midsomer Murders, so in a different room from laptop.

DD I think my rotovator is too big for weeding beds. I use it for the Veggie garden in the spring. I don't think it's a good idea for weeds as the stems get wound around it and it chops up roots so they increase and multiply. I weed by hand with fork and trowel in flower beds.

You must have been quite near me today, I'm 20 mins from Périgueux and 25 mins from Hautefort. Have you been to the cave near Tourtoirac? It's on the way to Hautefort from me.

I have 2 woodburners to save on oil bills, but it's a lot of work with logs. Oil here is considerably more expensive than in the UK.

My fennel always bolts, don't think I'll bother again.

Well done Gardengirl. I used to love the shows in our village years ago when I lived in England.

Have gardened, weeded, dead headed, tidied. It was lovely and sunny, I got a bit hot.

Have just been making a taboulé salad with garden veg and herbs for the BBQ we are going to tomorrow chez friends near Riberac. Lunch time.
