Hello Forkers January 2017 Edition

Posted: 27/01/2017 at 10:13

When I worked for Children's Services and drove as part of my job, carrying children and/or parents,  we had to have a driving assessment every three years - it was carried out to the standard of the Advanced Motorists test - pleased to say I scored 'excellent' every time. 


However, having watched Pa's driving deteriorate to the stage where bro and I had to tell him that he must get rid of the car, I am very aware of the slippery slope.  Although OH is a lot younger than I am, he doesn't drive (his choice as he was once in a bad smash) so when I stop driving we will be dependent on public transport etc - that's one of the reasons we chose to live here rather than further out into the countryside where I lived when I was younger - we have good bus service to the city and the coast, and a mainline railway station within a 15 minute bus/taxi ride.

Has anyone eaten Hosta leaves before?

Allow the surface of the compost to dry out between waterings  - stick your finger into the soil to the first joint - water when the top is dry and your finger tip touches damp soil. 


Water then allow excess to drain away. Don't keep it standing in water.

What A Start to 2017

Good to see you. I'm sorry you've had such a difficult start to the year.


Take care of yourself - don't overdo it - my brother had pneumonia a couple of years ago and his recovery took a long time - he's younger than me and was very fit before he was ill.

Daffodils....too late?

Plant them now if they're still firm -  they've got two chances and it's better than throwing them away
