Those are brilliant pumpkins Rusty!  Fantastic!  Looking forward to seeing the newspaper article.

Did I detect a slight East Anglian accent?

I can't get the fingernails to look clean. Is that going to embarrass anyone?

Euonymous europaeus Red Cascade is very happy on shallow chalky soil.  It's an elegant small tree with the most attractive fruits and really good autumn colour.

And it's a UK native too so good for wildlife

David posted this and then realised that if you're ignoring him you won't be able to read it, so I've cut and pasted it here

"...Click on 'My settings' (top right of the page) Scroll down to 'Members I am ignoring'....you'll probably see my name in the box. All you need to do is remove it."

I've managed to Ignore myself in the past - I suppose some people might think that was a positive thing

We're indoors now having a cuppa so you can have some sunshine now Lily

We've done loadsa stuff - all the heavy stuff I couldn't do with my bad wrist.  Now the only big job to do is digging over the veg patch and sowing the broad beans.  That can be done in the next couple of weeks.  I've also got some tulip bulbs to plant and pot, but they're not urgent. 

OH has planted three hazel bushes, making the Little Wilderness a bit bigger, and he's  planted 20 Narcissus pseudonarcassus around them and given them a good soaking.   Looking forward to catkins and daffodils in the spring

Try contacting this firm http://www.newatlanticonline.co.uk/products/agricultural-construction-garden-and-diy-tools/tools-hand-tools-tool/

They're very helpful - if they don't stock them I bet they'll know someone who does.

I'm a member of one other forum - we all share an interest in food but discussions range even more widely than on here - it too is friendly and some of us meet up for picnics and restaurant meals and some of us have become firm friends in real life as well as virtually.

I'm happy to be proved wrong, but I've a feeling that both these forums may be just a little out of the ordinary.
