HELLO FORKERS!

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.

BL, if you scroll down on your link,  one of those costs £259 plus carriage !!!  It looks much the same as the others!!!  I'd want the kneeling pad to be made of mink and for it to come equipped with a jet pack to lift me up for that money!!!

Ff - OH says 'Of course', but it'll be a while - he's doing a very good job here.  Both compost bins have been emptied, thoroughly turned and refilled. 

It's woollies off here too

I've taken down the runner beans and the haulms have been stashed in a sheltered corner to provide potential hibernation opportunities for Hefty and pals.

The rampaging squash has been  photographed and deconstructed and the squash is indoors - it's nearly as big as a foot ball and looks like a Crown Prince - and the last  10 cucumbers have been picked and the vines are ready for the compost heap. I've started picking the last of the Polka raspberries and cutting them back to about knee height.  I know it's early, and I'll cut them down properly in February - but they need taking in hand and sorting out - they're rampaging too!

Several masses of large slug eggs have been uncovered under the tarpaulin - we've come in for lunch and the resident robin is having his lunch out there
