It's interesting reading this thread.

Too late for this, that and the other! Where do you all live?



Mark, Lou has said that he/she'll be planting out in July - I think that's what people mean by 'its too late'.


To follow my suggestion of Borlottis they'd have to be grown on in big pots until July, but at least if harvested for the dried beans they'd make the most of the autumn

Consider tripods of Borlotti beans - start them off in pots now and plant them out later - allow the beautiful blotchy red pods to ripen on the plant and harvest the beans for drying - they'll look fantastic, and you did say you like beans

Maybe Fairy's trapped by the wings under a heap of builders' rubble

We didn't see a Panda at the zoo yesterday, so she's not there ..........

Inspiring or what?

Didn't see this thread until just now ... didn't see the programme either ... but I agree, the mountains climbed by the entrants in the Invictus games are humbling, as are the achievements of the Paralympians; those with physical difficulties and also those with learning disabilities.

They are true heroes.
