HELLO FORKERS! September Edition

Posted: 05/09/2016 at 08:22

Good morning all   G'day Pat 

A fine morning here in Norfolk, and a warm week ahead if the forecasters are to be believed ... that should ripen the last of the tomatoes. 

We had a lovely day with friends at Cromer yesterday and then I managed to stay awake for Poldark. 

I forgot to mention that whilst eating our fish and chips, we had our own 'Poldark moment' when two tall and handsome young men emerged from the sea in their unmentionables and came to join us in our shelter whilst they towelled down and pulled on their jeans and tee shirts - we decided they were not English - no English lad would be that self-assured in public in nothing but a pair of wet boxers.  

Some of you know I've been suffering with a very painful shoulder for the past few weeks -  our Fish & Chip companions decided that it had  gone on long enough and I should definitely make a GP appointment today - then as I got into bed after watching Poldark, my shoulder made an almighty and painful crunch  - then another as I lay down  This morning it's much better, I have a lot more movement in it and much less pain.  There certainly seems no need to see the GP.

I'm not sure who should take the credit - the Fish & Chippers or Poldark 

Wot is it?

Yes, definitely a walnut.

I'll go with Woody Nightshade - growth's not right for potato - but as has been said, nightshades are part of the Solanum family, as of course are lots of other plants that we grow in our gardens and greenhouses, e.g. potatoes tomatoes and aubergines.  

Although the fruits of the nightshade are poisonous to us and other mammals, they're often eaten by birds who are probably responsible for spreading the plants as the seeds pass through them.

We had to walk up the slope from the prom to the top of the cliff in between

Tall raspberry canes

if they're fruiting now it sounds as if they're autumn fruiting. Cut all the canes down to ground level in February.

Edit button times out after 5 mins SGL. Stops some crafty misbehaviour that went on in the past   It means that we have to put up with some misspellings etc, but it's better than being manipulated by trolls.
