Not a million miles from you, myself, Yvies....so I kind of look at it as laughing at myself.

I just happened to come across it when looking for other stuff.

Anyone remember the Dudley earthquake. (sorry Yviestevie)

Dudley Earthquake Appeal

A MAJOR EARTHQUAKE MEASURING 4.8 ON THE RICHTER SCALE, HIT IN THE EARLY HOURS OF MONDAY 23RD SEPTEMBER 2002 EPICENTERED ON DUDLEY, WEST MIDLANDS

Victims can be seen wandering aimlessly muttering: ??Yam Orwight?,, ??Boing Boing?? and ??Bostin??. The Earthquake decimated the area, causing approximately £30 worth of damage. Several priceless collections of mementos from the Balearics and Spanish costas were damaged. Three areas of historic and scientifically significant litter were disturbed. Many were woken well before their giro arrived. Thousands are confused and bewildered, trying to come to terms with the fact that something interesting has happened in Dudley.

One resident. Donna-Marie Dutton, a 17 year old mother-of-three said, ??It was such a shock. Little Chantal-Leanne came running into my bedroom crying. My youngest two, Tyler-Morgan and Megan-Storm slept through it. I was still shaking when I was watching Trisha the next morning.?? Apparently though. looting did carry on as normal. The British Red Cross have so far managed to ship 4000 crates of Sunny Delight to the area to help the stricken masses.


Rescue workers are still searching through the rubble and have found large quantities of personal belongings including benefit books and jewellery from Elizabeth Duke at Argos.

**HOW YOU CAN HELP**

This appeal is to raise clothing and food parcels for those unfortunate enough to be caught up in it.

Clothing is most sought after.
Items required include: -
Flat caps
Donkey Jackets
Heavy Twill Trousers (Male)
Shell Suits (Female)
Boots.

Food parcels may be harder to put together but necessary all the same. Required foodstuffs include: -
Faggots
Grey Peas
Pork Scratchings
Tripe and Onions
??Pigs Blood Pud??
Banks??s Bitter or Mild

£2 buys chips, scraps and blue pop for a family of four £10 can take a family to Stourport for the day. where children can play on an unspoiled canal bank among the national collection of stinging nettles.

22p buys a biro for filling in a spurious compensation claim

Please do not send tents for shelter, as the sight of ??posh?? housing is unfair on the population of neighbouring areas of Gornal, Oldbury and Sedgley.

Love a custard cream with my cuppa.   Then again I love chocolate digestives and ginger nuts too.  Mmmm.   Nice little thread GEMMA 

 

Guess no one ever poked a custard cream through the curtains then?

I don't know how it would work but a lady I came across in the gardening aisle in Wilkinson's kept insisting you should grow your potatoes in the bottom of a large pot and your carrots on the top.   I don't see how there would be room for both but she was quite insistent. (I'm not growing potatoes so not trying it.)

 

You don't get that kinda talk in Harrods!

Is it to early for catch crops now?  as we have space in broadbean bed and potato bed when we plant tomorrow

That should work fine.....perhaps wise to wait until your main crop surfaces before you sow your catch crops. 

It would be wise to make successional sowings at say fortnightly intervals, to avoid the glut & dearth situation......sow just short manageable rows.

Radish on grow-bags etc, the idea is sound but given the limited space I'm not sure it would be worth it.

This type of cultivation is known as sowing a catch crop...ie good use can be made of ground around slow maturing crops such as celery, where quick maturing stuff such as radish & lettuce can be sown and harvested before the main crop is ready.

No root crops (including radish) lend themselves to being transplanted because they are tap rooted, unlike the fibrous roots of other plants that are suitable for transplanting.
