HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 23/10/2014 at 11:23

Oooh thank Lily - perfect timing   I' ve just come in from the garden.  I've dug over the area where the runner beans were and have sown a double row of broad beans.  I think I'll get another pack of seeds at the weekend as I've used all of this pack and could do with another double row. 

I'm not going to mow the lawns as my wrist aches after digging out the new crop of roots from the ash tree that have invaded the veg patch. Hopefully OH will have time to mow the lawns at the weekend.

We do love the ash trees but I'd rather their roots went deeper down - the problem is they seek out the moisture when I water the veg patch.  They even pop up into the raised beds!

Reusing soil thats had tomato blight in it

I would just spread it onto the veg patch and fork it in.  There are so many fungal spores in the air, the few that may be in the compost won't make a significant difference. 

Some good sharp winter frosts this year would help

Then can I have half a dozen please Dove?

I'll make extra then Woody - two and a half pounds of pastry resting in the fridge. 

Fork, rake and hoe and broad bean seeds are ready to use - coffee being drunk ....

Good reminder Alan

My daughter buys the ones in plastic string, but cuts the plastic netting off and puts them in one of these

Don't think they'll take any notice of me Alan - they're an excitable lot

But they're getting a bit ahead of themselves, it's not time to stir C*mas puds yet, Stir Up Sunday isn't until 23 November! 

Dull here too, but broad bean sowing, lawn mowing and pasty making are on the cards over here

Woody, I have a special licence for my 'Cornish' pasties, awarded to me by the friend who taught me to make them - she was born in Falmouth so the Pasty Police have agreed that I'm a 'special case'
