HELLO FORKERS!

A little while ago I asked the question of you lovelies, 'why would anyone buy grated cheese or bagged salad leaves from a supermarket'.

Now, I would ask why on earth would anyone watch Keith Lemon on TV?

I agree with both and with the benefit of hindsight I probably wouldn't have bought mine.

With its narrow blade width of around 9 inches it is quite useful for weeding/hoeing  between rows and is also very lightweight....having said that, I would rather have the (almost) £400 purchase cost.

Nothing compares with peace & tranquillity when using my trusty old spade & fork.

I wouldn't call it 'hard work'. but they aren't suitable for ground that hasn't already been worked. I use mine mainly for keeping weeds down between rows....even then it leaps around a lot.

Given the loose stones flying around, I think I would be wearing some eye protection.....eyesight is very precious & can be lost in a trice.

Btw, I have a Mantis tiller with a Honda 4 stroke engine.

"Been on your belly again DAVID. "

I'm wondering if you take yours lying down, Rb.

Btw, I'm not a 'Forker'.

I'm sure anyone lucky enough to have seen the Victorian Kitchen Garden series on BBC2 in the 1980s, will love this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZZx0zTb0Xw

sweetpea idea

The Victorians with their endless source of labour & insatiable thirst for display, used to grow clematis horizontally in circular beds.

This was achieved by laying suitable sticks within a circular border after careful soil preparation, the plants were then planted between these sticks and carefully trained. 

A demonstration is available on the 'Victorian Flower Garden' DVD, with head gardener Harry Dodson.

I have reservations about this being successful with sweet peas.
