I agree with Dave

Hope you've got plenty of room for them


 They're not a small plant.

The guff that gets poured out to promote programmes and do the voice-overs etc is all the same whatever programme/channel you watch.  I blame all those courses in Media Studies.  My brain filters that sort of stuff out and I really don't take it in.  OH says that in his experience male brains don't filter stuff out like that - it's either all or nothing with them.  Perhaps he's put his finger on it

I think they'll be fine Clari - just don't stress them by harvesting any - they'll survive like that until late autumn when hopefully their Forever Home will be ready

Morning everyone 

lots of rain around now....what happened to our sunshine? I blame George Osborne 

What has your neighbour done now Punkdoc?  He sounds a real a.....e.   Maybe we should all go back to how my dad got us to settle issues...put on the boxing gloves.    

Not a good idea for me Verdun - I'd always lose even tho I was in the right

If you're itching to do some gardening today you can come here - the sun is shining and I've got an extension to the veg patch that needs digging

Have a look at this video http://www.gardenersworld.com/how-to/projects/video-projects/how-to-grow-carrots-in-a-container/62.html

also, have a look at last week's Big Dreams, Small Spaces (Series 2, Episode 5)

where lots of veg were grown in raised beds.  You could protect similar beds from rabbits by putting a post at each corner and fixing wire netting around the beds.  It wouldn't be as big a job as fencing rabbits out of the entire garden.

Good luck

Good morning all   G'day Pat   and a special Hello to Pdoc ((hugs))   - hope today is better than yesterday and that the problems get sorted soon.

Well, I didn't expect to wake up to blue skies and sunshine   the rain yesterday evening was horrendous - we had to turn the tv up to hear it - but now it's a gorgeous morning and the birds are singing  and the pigeons cooing and the peregrines at Norwich cathedral have four eggs and have started sitting http://upp.hawkandowl.org/norwich-peregrines/norwich-cathedral-peregrine-live-web-cam-2016/
