HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 27/08/2015 at 08:26

Just googled GWRS, and must say I am none the wiser - do they parade, or just hang out together?? Let us know how the day unfolds

have woken up to more rain (thought yesterday's was meant to be the last of it, but obviously the  weather makers had other plans).  In the end, the prospect of a full week at work overwhelmed me, and I have taken the day off to go "uni" shopping with Chicklet.  This involves a trip to the yellow and blue store, plus no doubt some essential clothes shops.  We're making a day of it, with littlest chicklet coming too.

Glad you had a good time with your cousins Dove, that Wonky's cold is kept at bay with the coffee, that lemon drizzle cake goes down well, that Hosta has a good trip home to the motherland, and that Clari's funds eventually appear .....

Think those wildebeest have been through here too.  Expecting them to be followed by schools of porpoises if this keeps up much longer

We have had a bumper crop this year too - netted them for the first time.  We were picking from mid June til early August.  I have two plants of the same variety - Earliblue

Some sunshine here, but don't think it will last long.  Think my waterbutts should be nearly full again now.

on Swallows and Amazons .....read them all when I was a child ...They didn't mean to go to Sea was my favourite.   Think thats a Broads one.  Enjoy them Pat

I'd post a new thread LMS - there are a few tomato experts on the forum, but they're unlikely to look in on a sweetcorn thread.

our silk tassles are now going brown - will be harvesting a few this week (with my umbrella)
