Hi neighbour   Why not have a listen to Bob Flowerdew on iPlayer or whatever it's called and see what you think from what he said.  It's a bit of swings and roundabouts - I think that if you left them on and escaped the frost then you could get a crop from them, but unless we had an amazing summer you might not get a second crop so what are you gaining?

I'm glad I picked mine off (although it was very tempting - they just needed another fortnight or so of summer - but we didn't get it).

Hi all   Just got off phone from son - they live a mile inland on the Suffolk coast - it's very very windy there at the moment.  His football match has been cancelled for H&S so he's organising an indoor 5 a side later today to keep fitness levels up.  

Do you remember that about a fortnight ago they had a lightening strike and tornado which damaged his neighbours' roofs and brought tiles down onto son's driveway - well next door have got scaffolding up and the tiles are stacked in piles on the scaffold boarding - or they were last night!  

Now they're all in son's driveway - that's the second time his and DIL's cars have narrowly escaped being hit by falling tiles from that roof.

Yesterday he phoned the builders and warned them that it might happen and they said that it was too dangerous to go up the scaffolding and bring the tiles down - his comments about why they stacked them there in prevailing weather conditions were unprintable!

Last spring I took my Aged Ps a planted container of spring flowers for their room at The Lovely Home, so that they knew spring had arrived.  When the flowers were over Pa told me to take them home and plant them in my garden - he was thrilled the other day when I told him that their primroses were in bloom in the garden   Little things mean such a lot!
