HELLO FORKERS! July Edition

Posted: 31/07/2016 at 20:54

Just read back about 4 pages, been laughing. Just when I was thinking of joining in and it's calmed down.


pp said about Tom Daley "HF it's a very small budgie in those smugglers!" a) how do you know? Is your TV screen big? b) Maybe the water was cold in the pool


I was a student nurse once too. A man came into A&E with his you know what stuck in a vacuum cleaner hose.


I did lots of gardening this afternoon. Was much cooler after the storm. 3 barrow loads of stuff now added to the tip.

Oh gosh, Dove is really quite tidy, I thought she would be.


I have a box where I put papers and stuff until it overflows then I have to sort it a bit to make room for the next lot. It's in the kitchen and easy to deal with as when guests come I just shove it somewhere else. I always have a load of papers next to my lap top on the kitchen table, when people come I shove it all in the box etc. Really organised, but it seems to irritate OH.

Gosh, that's a bit extreme pp, I hope it didn't cause lasting damage. I worked in Boots for a few months, before starting nursing training, most of the customers were nice.

Shrub ID please

What to grow in summer

Posted: 31/07/2016 at 14:05

Rocket, spring onions, perpetual spinach (keep moist),radishes (keep moist too). My son-in-law sowed French beans the end of July last year and got a crop.

Stringy Beetroot

Sounds lovely, Dove. Will we get a photo?

Something Is Eating its way through everything!

Gosh, sounds awful. I've seen maggots like those of carrot root fly, but not something that gets in everything. Never heard of it with tomatoes. Is there any chance of a photo of it?

Does anyone recognise this seedling?

The biggest, best and most fragrant lemons I've ever seen were in Ravello in Italy. So, if you know anyone going there on holiday ...

Moving mature plants

Posted: 31/07/2016 at 09:34

You can move perennials if you lift up all the earth and roots around them and water well. A poster here, Verdun, has had success with it, so did my daughter when she moved house.


I don't know about the hydrangea, but if it's a question of it will die anyway because of the builders then it's worth giving it a go, taking as much root as you can. They dig up mature plants, even trees, for the Chelsea Flower Show.
