Hello Forkers - February 2017 Edition

Posted: Yesterday at 07:31

Good morning all 

Hosta - have a good day :-)

it would be funny if it wasn't so worrying. I find if hard to believe that so many people in the US have been taken in by him. I worry that education systems in the west have neglected to teach about the fundamental principles of democracy as part of a general education over recent years.

How to Pronounce 'Gean' as in Wild Cherry?

Posted: 24/02/2017 at 19:24

It makes more sense to me to find out how the locals pronounce it and copy them, 'cos sure as eggs is eggs they won't change how they've always pronounced it

Now the bulb in the garage has blown - no spare in the bulb box 'cos it's a 'big' one and has been fine since we moved here nearly seven years ago. Well have to manage until I go to the wonderful hardware shop in the city.

I pruned my fig at the weekend - sap wasn't rising in Norfolk.  It's still pretty cool.

Peter , you may not want vast amounts of raspberries but that's what you're going to get! We started with three canes of Polka three or four years ago. Every year we've had raspberries most days either for. Breakfast or supper, made at least six pounds of jam and frozen enough to almost fill a drawer in the freezer - we make lovely desserts with them at Christmas.

How big do you want your raspberry patch to be?  They'll spread as far as you'll let them.  At least, my autumn-fruiting Polka do - I dig them up, pot them up and give to friends

Plants I've bought from Burncoose have been fantastic quality - both mail order and when I've been down that way and visited them.  I wouldn't have any hesitation in buying from them.

I'm not connected with them in any way.
