Growing Roses

Taken delivery of this pair of Draper secateurs today and have to say I'm delighted with them. I have to say it was the wooden handles & slightly retro look that appealed...Having said that, I've always trusted Draper tools and found them to be of good quality without being outrageously priced.

Bit of a nightmare at this time of year, I've managed to keep mine clear with fortnightly spays of 'Roseclear'.

Potato berry???

Actually. potatoes & tomatoes are members of the deadly nightshade family -  Solanaceae.

The poison in those potato seed fruits is  Solanine, this poison is also present in green potatoes which shouldn't be eaten either.

David, sounds like you've been listening to Delia!  I see your logic re the penalty shooter.

 

Not much passes me by, Nd  cept when I'm in goal.

Stevie G takes penalties for Liverpool (as he did for England) because he misses less than anyone else.

Good luck with the scenario you've been dreaming about.

Did I not say look away, Frank? It was Cyndi Lauper - 'Time After Time'.....you'd have loved it.

Btw, U-tube is under the sink, this is YouTube.   

Keep dancing!

My onion stems aren't drying out

Posted: 28/09/2014 at 12:09

Adrian...really is time those onions were lifted, dried  stored by now. Put your fork under each bulb and prise them out of the ground, then after they have died down you can dry them off and store them.

Problem is, the sun's day length is shorting quite quickly now, so you may have to dry them indoors....somewhere like the greenhouse staging.

Interesting you thought so too, Lily. I did play the said words back a couple of times before posting here and could only conclude they were as I thought......Alas, I do think Angela is probably right.

Yes, Frankie is a petite little thing who should do well.

PS. Just replayed it again and have to admit (listening very carefully) it does sound like 'fall'.....subtitles next week?
