Good morning all   G'day Pat   Hope the doctor sorts you out quickly 

Damp and cooler (9.9C) out there this morning. 

I hope your weather forecast's right Hosta - that doesn't sound too bad

Weren't they talking about a hurricane in the southwest yesterday?

Sorry to hear that GWRS

At the end of October you can sow some Broad Bean Aquadulce Claudia - they'll grow slowly through the winter without any protection, then give you a crop around the end of May before the blackfly are about to spoil them

.... Dove, Lyn's right. We can always tell the outsiders from the locals. Locals never wash their cars in these parts. We're surrounded by farms and half the traffic is tractors, great big muddy tractors.

The car always gets a wash and brush up for holidays - the last one was two years ago

I'd put the pot up on feet or bricks to ensure good drainage over the winter, and bubble wrap the pot so that the soil and roots don't get frozen. 

The tree itself should be fine, but when it blossoms in the spring you might need to fleece it at night if it's frosty.

KEF - love MASH - bought OH the complete boxed set for his birthday - still working our way through it - he says it's the best present he's ever had.

Heating is on - it'll help dry some jeans as well as keep us warm.
