Hello Forkers - April edition

Posted: 19/04/2017 at 14:52

Back from tennis ... had a good session, including winning my own service game against 'the best pair' to love  Woo hoo!!!


I've also done some food shopping and been up to the GC for a bag of MPC - I had  planned to prick out the tomatoes this afternoon, but it's clouded over and turned really chilly ... the forecast for the next few days is warming up a bit so I'll leave them for a day or so ... they're still quite tiny.

Good morning all   Quite a sharp frost on the grass here at the front of the house  - hope the pear blossom will have escaped it as its in a fairly sheltered corner. 


Tennis later this morning, then I'll get our into the garden ... If the clear blue sky and sunshine remain it's going to be a lovely day.

Hello folks  We're home   We stopped off and saw The Nuts on our way home, managing to time our visit for the very moment that Mr Nut was making coffee   We had a walk around the lovely  garden in the spring sunshine, plants a good ten days ahead of here, sat and nattered, watched and listened to birds (including a blackcap) And swapped some plants 


feeling extraordinarily tired for some reason so will put my feet up and see what everyone's been up to. 


Have a peaceful evening folks. 

Asparagus - will it grow?

Ah, just seen you're in Cheshire. Plenty of time for yours to appear - when it wakes up it grows very quickly. 

Asparagus - will it grow?

Where abouts are you?  The asparagus growers in Norfolk aren't harvesting from the fields yet, only the stuff in the polytunnels. I wouldn't start worrying yet unless you're somewhere very mild.

Fidget   He wanted to sell you a finance package - he'd get a lot of commission for that. 


Hosta ((hugs)) hope it's an easy day today.

Shrubs outgrowing space

Personally I wouldnt call them thuggish - They're just plants with the potential to reach a decent size without too much TLC - 'good do-ers ' is what I'd call them. Easy enough to control with the secateurs.
