I'm sure you'll enjoy it, Lily.

Btw, not impressed with Jennifer Gibney (Mrs Brown's Boys) either......nothing to do with her dancing. In the pre-dance clip she said 'just don’t let me fart', after the dance she said to Tess  'I managed to do that without farting'.

Not very ladylike, but not surprising I suppose.

Hi, Mozey, welcome to the forum.

You have my sympathy if you have chickweed on your allotment, although it's shallow rooted and can be pulled-up easily, it's still very persistent.

Unless you intend to planting on the ground you intend to dig, I would leave it and winter dig it, anytime after next month. This involves just turning the soil and leaving it rough for the frosts & elements to break down.

Well that’s week one over with.

Pwoar!!….Frankie Bridge and Kevin what a combo and she can dance too.

I really enjoyed Alison Hammond’s dance who put in a performance that didn’t disgrace  the size 16 + s.

The sooner barrow boy Gregg Wallace goes the better, for me…..sadly my favourite professional Aliona Vilani will be out too.

Never liked a poser, so not keen on Thom Evans…..who would spell Tom wiv a ‘h’?

Wow, what a sunset!

What on earth lost the three points (wait till lily sees this)



Very kind of you, Lesley....but it's far from perfect and those achieving full marks (not sunsets particularly) were far better.

As a subject, competition sunsets are quite common and for them to stand any chance they must include other interesting features....this is why I chose to include an interesting cloud formation and silhouetted trees.  

Wow, what a sunset!

Entered this sun-set into a completion last week.....judge scored it 17 points out of 20.

After confess, I've tried to watch X Factor a few times, but oh dear, can't stand the hype, sob stories and how it's all so falsely manipulated.  

That's not to suggest 'Strictly' is perfect.

I ordered those black plastic bags when I ordered the seeds, Ive also fetched my seed compost, so I'm all ready to go. I'll wait until about middle of October.

 

I've always found them very satisfactory, Yviestevie. They accommodate two seedlings adequately throughout the winter, although they do hold quite a lot of compost.

Location wise, I think you'll need to sow around the same time as me.
