A Day Out

Posted: 09/08/2014 at 12:13

Pansyface - I've tried to PM you but it says you don't accept PMs.   If you send me a PM then I'll be able to reply to you, but other people will still be blocked.

In the past I've inadvertently Ignored posters, just because my cursor hovered a bit too long on the wrong part of the page   Now I check my Ignored list from time to time. 

I think that if the Mods block someone from posting (repeated spammers etc) their names appear on our Ignore list as well as the ones we've personally Ignored. 

The adverts down the right hand side of this forum's page are definitely targetted ones as I'm getting ads for a particular ladies clothing retailer that I was browsing quite a lot not so long ago.  

Walnuts - when to pick

Posted: 09/08/2014 at 12:07

Lucky you - I love walnuts.

Lots of info here https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/Profile?pid=546 

I love pickled walnuts - which have to be picked earlier before the shell has formed.  This is a lovely recipe for sweet pickled walnuts, which is a little bit unusual .

Folks   remember my strange squash plant that appeared suddenly in the veg patch?

 Well, now it's rambled through the raspberries and is coming out of the top on the north side, on the west it's now through the french beans and to the south it's halfway across the lawn, even if OH did trip over it and squash a bit of the stem - it recovered and is rampaging onwards - it's  covered with flowers, but so far they're all male ........... will we ever find out what it is????

A small boy is helping his grandfather to dig up some potatoes.

"Grandpa"  he said, "What I want to know is," he says, "why did you bury them?"

Re otting an Acer

Posted: 09/08/2014 at 10:26

Hmm, I've been mulling this  over - initially I thought I would repot now, but since then I've thought that doing this might  stimulate new growth which would then be damaged by the winter.  

On reflection I think I'd do it in the early spring (Feb-March) before it starts into growth.

But I'm not an acer expert - some posters on here know far more about them than I do - hopefully someone will be along soon.

In the meantime there's lots of info here http://www.burncoose.co.uk/site/page.cfm?page_ref=how_to_care_for_acers

Tumblr is a blogging platform.  Monty Don used it at one time.

If you search Tumblr gardening you'll get pictures/blogs about gardening that have been posted by bloggers.
