I had heard lots of derogatory comments about Moneymaker - but we grew it this year and liked it - lots of flavour ( which is what its detractors complained about).

Great stile Archie.  Bekkie - looking on the web will give the phone number of your nearest hedgehog rescue centre - with winter fast approaching I would call in the experts.  Ouch MrsG - hope its getting less painful

Back from a wonderful weekend away - Beth Chattos and Hyde Hall were lovely - even at this time of year.  Will post pics on gardens visited later in the week.  Then this morning we had a lovely walk along an Estuary - blowy but sunny.  Great meals out Friday and Saturday .... this turning 50 thing might not be so bad after all.  Chicklets back at school tomorrow, but OH and I have 2 more days off - all day bike ride planned tomorrow, and Tower of London (inspired by Lily's pictures) for poppies on Tuesday.  Need to do something to work off all those calories
