Bless you Matty ((lots of hugs)) - it's a strange thing to say but that sounds really positive - many many good wishes for the best possible outcome for you.

Take time between now and Monday to sit and reflect on what it is you want for yourself.  Positive thoughts winging their way to you.

Your favourite tomato varieties

Posted: 06/12/2014 at 10:34

I only grow outdoor tomatoes - this year Sungold cropped wonderfully, were trouble-free and the flavour was that wonderful acid/sweet combination that meant we were eating them from the vine like sweeties whenever we were in the garden!

Another favourite is the Heirloom oxheart variety Anna Russian - it sprawls and flops across the garden (I've found supporting it by tying it into a tripod of canes helps) and produces the most delicious large heartshaped juicy meaty fruits and is delicious eaten fresh or cooked - fabulous slow-roasted in the oven with garlic and olive oil.  Definitely growing it again next year.

When I was visiting some friends in the US a few weeks ago, I noticed their garden was beautiful. ...

A beautiful garden says more about the skill and effort of the gardener than the brand of products used.

Building a garden bed over cement plzzzz help

What sort of fertilizer and how much did you use?  It sounds to me as if you may have overdone the feeding.

I agree with Lyn, a good book on growing veg so that you get a grasp of the basics is a good idea - maybe Santa will bring you one

Grow your own Vegetables by Joy Larkcom is a good one and is available via Amazon.

Then you'll know what to do, when and what with - then if your plants and performing according to the book then we can try to help put them back on track.

Hugs Lynn - don't forget that link about support for carers that I posted.  As Lesley says, if you don't look after yourself who's going to look after them?  You need some respite.

Good morning all

Hope things improve Yvie ((hugs))

Lots to do today, Farm Shop, Christmas cards, tidying, sorting and making lists.  I also need to find some boxes to put books and stuff in as when we come back after Christmas the whole of the downstairs, plus hall, landing and bathroom are going to be redecorated!!!
