HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all. Another hot day coming.

Loads of mangetout peas to pick and freeze. OH picked loads of raspberries yesterday. We are going to England on Sunday for 2 weeks, so if the housesitter doesn't pick and freeze the broad beans we'll lose a lot of them. I hope he picks the sweet peas.

Just had a look, met the chap on thread about clearing a garden with lots of weedkiller. Best thing is to ignore it all before it blows up like it did before with a certain someone. They had similar names - BB ring any bells?

Hectic day. Human relations, not gardening. Committee meeting this afternoon, road was up, had to do huge detour, 40 mins late. Sons x 2 & brother rang this evening. Got washing in in the dark.

Morning all.

Punkdoc when you said "avert your eyes ladies", I thought you weren't going to put anything on!

Glad you had a good evening Chicky.

22° already and sunny. Must freeze some Mangetout peas and make redcurrant cordial.

I don't mind ironing, I do it in front of the TV, sitting down.

I sometimes get a page full of code, instead of a photo, too, Wintersong. Some photos appear sideways, some people say when they enlarge them they turn around the right way - not on my laptop they don't.

Been shopping, having cup of tea, bought a bunch of bare root leek plants in the GC. Must go and plant them and sort the outside tomatoes - sideshoots and tying up.

Mrs G, I've sent a couple more before and after seasonal pics to the Garden Gallery for you.

Weeded carrot and beetroot and planted out purple sprouting broccoli. Going shopping soon.

Here's another before and after, March and June. I think they are appearing in the wrong order.

Horses have neat feet now.

Dove, I hope the bank sorts your son's account quickly. Scary.

Mrs. Garden, Spirea "Bridal Wreath" is bigger than spirea "Snowmound". They have arching stems of sprays of tiny white flowers and slender leaves. Exochorda "The Bride" has bigger flowers and rounder leaves.

Lucky you, Chicky, Fergus Garret is the gardener at Great Dixter and very knowledgeable about plants, hope he's interesting. But good luck for today.

Morning all. There have been huge storms in France too. We were on a storm alert, but the storms were further north. Trees down, hailstone damage, powercuts etc.

Waiting for horse foot trimmer for my retired one and my daughter's two, one of hers is retired as well, 26, arthritis. My little mare has shoes so has the farrier.
