HELLO FORKERS! part two

Hosta, meant to say - did you and Lyn go on your outing yesterday, or did you both batten down the hatches and stay in the warm and dry?

DD your choir can come and practise here, as long as they don't need to all sit down ...  I've counted up, we have 14 seats in the whole house ......... just a thought, there's four wooden garden seats, two two-seater benches and a sun-lounger .......... plenty of seats .... bring them all

Morning Hosta ... don't you dare go climbing up to fix that roof ... you'll make your knee worse!!!  You'll have to phone a nice 'Man who Can' ... but get on the phone quick, I'm sure builder-types will be in great demand down there for a while.  I hardly saw my ex (a builder) for months after the 1987 Great Storm!!!

Gotcha Nut!  hadn't enlarged that one... duh! 

I wonder if Chrystal has a list of the seeds she sowed?

pancake day

We'll have savoury ones for our main course (either  emmental cheese and slices of smoked ham or duck and plum sauce, depending on whether there's any duck in the supermarket this morning).

Then for pud we'll have sweet ones, with either a fruit compote (probably raspberries, red currants, blackberries etc) , sugar and lemon, or maple syrup.

I shall consult OH

They look a bit like Physalis   (Chinese lantern, Cape gooseberry etc).  Solanaceae so related to aubergines

If you're talking about pelargoniums, I find they take most of the year round.  Should be fine now.

Ah, that's ok then ....... I was perplexed by planting aubergines in the winter in the UK LOL! 

I've not grown a lot of them, so am by no means an expert - let's see what others think as they come along (I'm up early this morning).

Hi Chrystal

Those don't look like the leaves of aubergines I've grown in the past - my plants had darker more toothed leaves.

Whereabouts are you?  I wouldn't expect aubergines to be growing outside in the UK at this time of year ..... but it's been a funny season
