HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 01/08/2015 at 10:25
Morning to all the lovely people on this forum .

Nice long lie-in needed here to restore batteries

Happy Ruby Anniversary Liri - hope cakes (of whatever variety) go down well. Knew your CV would be tip-top Panda - hang on in there, your dream job is going to appear very soon.

Gardening on the cards for me this weekend .....visible weeds must go (others can get on with it til autumn :O), some foxglove seedlings to pot on, and armfuls of sweetpeas to pick (sorry LilyP). Was going to take some photos, as I am super pleased with it all this year, but looks like I will have to wait til Monday to post them.

Last night we had our very first GH tomato of the year .....haven't grown sungold before, but verdict was good .....yum yum

Getting up not such a struggle this morning.....by Friday I will have cracked it

Just having the last of our blueberries with my cereal - bumper crop this year - the netting really paid off.  Not long before the autumn raspberries start too - keeps breakfast interesting.

Furry sheepskin slippers on here too

Just watched Alan T (normally a fan) .....since when were olive and lemon trees hardy in Hull ??  Lots of shouting at the TV going on In our living room.

Then caught up with the autistic gardener, which was inspirational.  So I can now go up to bed with a smile

Phantastic photos  Some stunning colour combinations.  Particularly like the photos with the dark skies swirling - makes it look very dramatic.

And Harry is the cutest twiglet I've ever come across

Look after that knee Hosta - not fair of work to grumble and put pressure on you.  If the doc is getting cross you'd better listen - tell work to

Had a bit of a potter, pulled out a few weeds, deadheaded a few pinks, cut back some poppies and hauled up some alliums.  Loads of weeds if you look closely, but the overall impression is good .....so I will have to start going out without my lenses in

Gave the new GW mag a good reading too.  Making the most of my last day of freedom.  Will see you all back on the early shift again tomorrow
