HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 10/07/2014 at 15:49

KEF I've a bench you can paint if you like - its mostly done just needs another coat but every time I go to do it its either so hot I'm convinced the paint will more evaporate then sink in or looks like its about to rain!

Still here. I was going to ask the boss if it was worth my coming in tomorrow but he's decided that since its such lovely weather he's going home to play with his motorbike.

Its not even a very nice motorbike.

Oh well - off to the museum tonight and I've giving myself a very special treat of giving one of the smaller engines a full polish up and clean until it is positively beyond shiny again. Looks like it'll be another late night coming home and "showering" in the outside sink to avoid waking up my partner!

Off on my chicken keeping course on Sunday so shall have to hope the weather is cool on Saturday so I can get lots* done in the garden.

*By lots I mean go to the bank, just "nip" into the pond centre, look with puppy dog eyes at their fountain display, come home, make a cup of tea, pootle around the garden, get another drink, stare at the vegetable plot area until one of us gives in, poke around the wildlife area for frogs, announce an impromptu BBQ will serve as dinner, cut the grass, talk about digging the rest of the bush roots out, open a ginger beer, promise to do the gardening on Monday

Derek what programme are you using to access this website? FireFox / Explorer / Google Chrome? I'm finding they work just fine so it might be a problem on your side for instance some software that needs updating to allow you to view.

Can anyone identify these roots / bulbs?

 That wouldn't surprise me Welsh. Everything already established in this garden is of the "almost a weed" variety. Still at least this one looks nice!

Morning all!

Can anyone identify these roots / bulbs?

Thanks! There's quite a lot of that in the garden already with yellow flowers (bet I didn't take a photo!) So this little lot will be destined for the recycling unless its viable to plant as is to grow on at friends / family / anyone who wants it?

I'm digging a more neglected area of the garden and have found several handfuls if these.., erm things.

Can anyone tell me what they might be from?

Evening all. Yes I am the only woman draughtsman. I don't think they're discriminating by gender / disability and I'm tie last in with another chap. They're judging us on a point scoring system and using that to pick the winners.
If I'm not given anything to do by 11:00 tomorrow I'll be going to the boss and coughing politely that they quit messing about and just let me go.

My dream job unfortunately hasn't the funds to pay me so that's the dead duck floating. My CV is out there with other companies so we'll see what adventure happens next. You never know I might be about to find something terribly exciting

Well I think that quietly confirms it.

Gardeners hands! Best cream?

Becky - keep an eye on those hands and please scuttle with all speed to a doctor if you start to think you're not in control. The last thing you want is to get an infection in the skin and some nasty scarring caused

I'm loving my red onions this year - they're so STRONG to taste! I'm going to miss them when we run out and we have to go back to shop brought.

My cousins children were both huge - so much so that when the eldest was born on the 1st April I called my aunt out as a joker when she said the weight (14lb something). She says she dreads to think how big they'd have been had she not walked 3 / 4 miles a day and been on her feet all day in a very active job. I wonder how much small babies of the past were down to smoking / poor diet?

 

GFantic - try them and see!
