HELLO FORKERS!

Hope the new teenager has a happy day

Thanks for the Horsham tip Lily - its a bit far for me to make it to the theatre on time - am hoping he will visit somewhere I can get to after work. If you're reading Monty, how about a trip to Windsor ??

On my train (standing ) looking at all the poor people who travel at this unearthly hour every day . Do you think they come home early and spend time in their gardens to compensate ?? Probably not - pinstripes and gardeners rarely go together

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Special hugs for Matty today, and positive thoughts for those with worrying times ahead.

It's my birthday

DD - you have had a busy day.  Just back from doing the situp rolly thingys myself

Sorry you were under the weather for Christmas Mr & Mrs Bill - hope you are both on the road to recovery.

early start for me tomorrow (i'll catch up with you all when i'm on the train) - so heading off to Beddington Villas, , with Monty to keep me company (reading his musings on French gardens, and loving it).

It's my birthday

Morning Wintersong and MrsG.  Morning everyone else too.  I agree 6.30 today seems earlier than it normally does MrsG.  Probably something to do with the pitch darkness, and it being a Monday.

Pilates tonight for me too - need to keep flexible so I can bend down and reach all those weeds

Starting tomatoes indoors

Posted: 11/01/2015 at 20:45

I have a GH, but it is unheated, so I don't start my tomatoes off til March (i start them on windowsills indoors too)  This year we also tried some grafted ones from the GC - and both seed grown and grafted started fruiting at the same time, so don't think you lose much by waiting til March (apart from stressing over frost or leggy seedlings).

i do start the rest of my seeds (mostly flowers) in February, in windowsill propagators - but they don't take off as quickly as tomatoes, so this seems to work well too.

Snowdrops???

Just checked the weather forecast - might need a snorkel too

Snowdrops???

Have a good journey home AWB.  Hope you find snowdrops on your return - might need your brolly though
