I'm puzzled  I post on a thread titled 'any good book for beginners', highlighting two excellent RHS publications on fruit & veg gardening.....the latter being available for just 1p from Amazon.....not a single reply!

I'll get me coat.

So Neil Warnock gets the Crystal Palace job……whilst he’s undoubtedly one of the game’s characters,  I don’t see him as having the coaching skills of his predecessor, Tony Pulis.

My pennyworth....not often I refer to books, but two books I wouldn't like to be without are: the RHS publications  'The Fruit Garden Displayed' by Harry Baker.

and

*'The Vegetable Garden Displayed' by Joy Larkom.....excellent companions, whatever your experience of gardening.

*Available from Amazon for just 1p.

And they all blamed David Moyes 

 

Yes indeed, please get back soon David M, the premiership needs you.

Maybe Chrystal Palace may be able to tempt you. 

The only crumb of comfort, is that your successor at Everton is a man equal to your very high calibre.

Cheers David,

Chatsworth is another place we love to visit but unfortunately I'm working on Friday  DOH!

 

Well comfort yourself with the knowledge that the weather will not be fantastic, Bubba.....I love Chatsworth too, my most favourite big house in the whole world.

Hopefully, I'll be visiting Bakewell on Mon 8th Sept.

If you happen to be in the area, perhaps the Country Fair held at Chatsworth House this Friday (29th Aug) would be a better proposition.

...and a very warm welcome to the forum, Mel.

As often happens the author of the thread started two identical threads at the same time...hence this one has been lying  dormant for a little while. The other one answered the query to their satisfaction, I believe.
