I have a large bacon hock lurking in my fridge - I'll be cooking it sometime this week - so versatile - bacon, carrots and broad beans with parsley sauce, bacon and leek soup, pea and ham soup ....... we can live off it for days and put some in the freezer as well.

Good morning Pat E and Verdun

I've got smilies - I'll share some with you with you

I've just been outside (in the rain) to have a quick check on things - the pond is 4" higher than it was a couple of days ago!

The temp went down overnight to 11.6C and is still there

I grew one from a branch I sprayed gold and used as a christmas tree. It rooted in the pot and I planted it out in the garden in Spring. It ended up about 15m tall, but the year after I sold the house, it died from honey fungus.

Maybe it was  missing me?

Good morning all   I am not going out there in my pjs to see what the temperature is or to find out whether the hedgehogs have eaten their supper.  At least I'm not going to have to water the beans today!

Hope the night owls got some sleep eventually and that PatE is warming up!

I have definitely taken to adding more plants and looking after the ones I have- never cared for gardening before but after the help they gave me I am giving it my best shot! Not allowed to say which one is mine until it's aired but it is a very different type of "garden" (quite a big clue! You will know which one is mine from that!!!)

Are you going to be wearing a pink carnation and carrying a copy of the Financial Times?

That looks like a miscanthus  giganteus to me - there are fields full of them around here grown as a bio-fuel.

Shall we pool our piggy banks?

Or shall we stick with our seed swap?
