No worries, phillippa.....some get it, others don't.

It hasn't been a brilliant World Cup, but for me the drumming by Germany of the host nation (Brazil) was a breath-taking display of the artistry 'beautiful game'.

Thanks, KEF...I hadn't heard until you said, although it seemed inevitable.

Liverpool FC is better than that and although I will remember his 'genius' fondly, the £75m will be more important for the clubs future.

...before this thread sinks into oblivion, I would just like it to be known that I'm  not 90....just feel it at times.

Interest fro across the pond.

Which is why a little while ago, several others and myself were concerned about the personal details you had divulged.  

Be wary, dear friend. 

Runner beans too many leaves?

Thanks folks for the advice. Much appreciated. Looking forward to our first meal from the beans.

My father always grew beautiful runner beans and they were about 15" long and very straight and super tender. He's not here now bless him but he always strived to pick his first beans by his birthday each year which was on 4th July. He also had greenhouses full of tomatoes and cucumbers which he always gave to the family. I wish I was as greenfingered as him, but I am trying.

 

Yes, these childhood memories become very strong in later life, as so they should.

When my daughter was a toddler she was always near me when I was tending my roses, as she was during our visits to the shows where I exhibited them. I thought little of it at the time, but she must have been taking it all on board, as she is now has a passion for them and is a accomplished rose grower herself.

Jaybee, thanks for the tomato pic...once again, all I see is very healthy plants.

lindsaywanda is right, feed weekly with a high potash feed such as Tomorite, but only after the bottom truss of flowers are bearing fruit.

Good luck.

Crikey! We're becoming a nation of worriers.

I see nothing but a perfectly healthy row of runner beans, please don't defoliate them. 

Tomatoes, in the absence of any pic, I would say don't defoliate those either. 

HELLO FORKERS!

Odd how these bluddy things rule our lives.....just been trying to view something on YouTube which proved rather useless because of a feeble broadband speed...1.17Mbps to be exact....even saw the whirly circle thingie for the first time in years.

The speed I normally get (and pay for) is 32Mbps.....crikey I wouldn't like to go back to the old days.

Pre-recorded voice message from Virgin confirms a fault in the area that should be fixed shortly.
