Will I get told off for saying I like Pink Lady? I've heard a lot about how it's not a real name and they're not as good as they're made out and so on, but I like them. Not surehow you'd get one at all cheaply, though, unless you put some fresh peelings on rooting hormone and compost under a sunlight lamp ...

No idea, but it would have made a Frankenstein movie funny.

Don't know the quote, but it sounds like it was Marilyn Monroe and she followed it with "I'm high maintenance."

Nobody? Alright.


I told Halloran we didn't do vocals, and he said, "What my Sissy wants..."

She got it, all right!

Anyone done any gardening today?

As for how fast the birds can get rid of a handful of mealworms, I decided to find out with the help of my camera. The camera does spook them a little, but they still scoffed the lot inside 8 minutes. I put more out, but it was getting dark.

Tootles, apple trees flower at different times of year. To get fruit, you need two different trees that flower at the same time and are compatible.

Of course, bees fly long distances (they can ssutain a colony four miles from the nearest flowerbed) so you may well have a good pollen source within range already. One way to make sure is to get a tree that's got two-way compatible trees grafted onto it.

Apple tree with white leaves

It seems to be healthy enough, if slow-growing
