It won't keep getting taller and taller. 

Once the bushes are as thick/wide as you want them, take out some of the oldest canes at the base to encourage it to throw up new shoots.  Otherwise you can usually leave it pretty much alone.

Hey folks!  Rusty spade's been posting on here for quite a while now!

Who can forget those photos of his huuuuuuuuuuge parsnip  or the manoeuvring necessary to get his giant pumpkins into the trailer to get them to the Veg Show!

An 'iced 'but' Dove...was that a  Freudian slip.... 



Must have been  


Mental health support in this country is shocking - no one gets help when they need it, they get put on a waiting list and they wait and wait and wait ........they either get better themselves or they end up damaged for life.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy techniques should be taught in every secondary school in the country.  It would save a fortune in the long term ... but which political party ever gives a damn about the long term - they only think in 5 year packages

Hi DD  ((hugs)) for you and ((hugs)) for your friend.  Glad he's getting through it - I know someone in the same state at the moment - showing that you care is the important thing.

Lyn ((hugs)) for you too and for your dad.

Hosta ((hugs)) glad the tests were ok. 

Anyone else want any ((hugs)) ?  Form an orderly queue

It's usually just the blossom buds they go for - they're sweet with nectar and a 'high energy' food.  They know what's good for them

Edd - are you really taking some of your OH's Metformin???!!!  If so then forgive me for saying so, but you're being a complete idiot - it's a dangerous drug and shouldn't be taken without prescription or being monitored.  It can make you very ill indeed.  Why on earth are you taking it?  If you think you're ill then see your GP.  Don't self-prescribe.  It's not some sort of dietary supplement!!!

And your OH should be taking the amount prescribed for her!!!  Not giving some of it to you!!!

You have a partner and child who rely on you - for goodness sake be sensible!!!

Good morning Chicky and the rest of you as you arrive  G'day Pat

Not sure what's got Edd's goat ...

((hugs)) for Lyn

Busy day ahead - picking up paperwork from Ma's solicitors, then a visit to son then Ma ........... then a quiet weekend ahead
