HELLO FORKERS!

Good morning Woody and KEF

Light rain here - just enough to damp things down.  And some sort of alarm is going in the distance - in fact it sounds as if a railway crossing barrier is jammed down and the siren is going continually - it's only faint in the distance - but I can hear it!!! 

Congratulations Bekkie 

Clarri - I'm getting very curious indeed

How do you tell when the Yellow Banana chillies are ripe?

Just in case our neighbours have worked out who I am I shall say a Big Thank You!! on behalf of OH and myself.  They have removed that dratted wind chime from the tree just a few feet from our bedroom window.

I know I mentioned two years ago that it kept OH awake and he had to wear ear plugs, and you've only done it now (or has the chain rusted through?), but THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

Verdun ((hugs))  thinking of you and your mum. 

The others are right - your mum needs professional carers and you need time and space to live your own life, as well as to enjoy positive times with your mum rather than be her carer - I've been there

I think it's probably to do with the plants having some of the red pigment in them - I've noticed that other plants do similar things - have you noticed how purple sprouting broccoli leaves are slightly purplish?

I love them baked with goats cheese and walnuts - absolutely delicious - nearly as nice as warm from the sun with parma ham - dribble dribble ....
