Hello Forkers.....It's October!

Posted: Yesterday at 22:49

I love a bit of chicken and veg soup BL. I sometimes roast some veg and then blitz it and add the leftover bits of chicken, but I just added chopped carrot and onion to the stock this time. I like a roast squash with some spices, added to carrot and onion, to make soup too. Ideal for the current weather. 

The flowers on those little plants were stunning weren't they? Who'd have thought?  

Haven't caught up with the Lucy W.prog yet, but it's recorded. 

Better get to bed - up to take daughter to work first thing tomorrow, then see if there's anywhere not chucking it down, or shrouded in fog, for a much needed hillwalk. 

Night all 

Wishfull thinking?

If you planted an evergreen hedge, that would give her even more to moan about, and she couldn't complain about that either!  

She sounds a right pain in the h*le, and a bully as well. 

I see Obeliix and I posted a similar idea at the same time earlier re trellis/fence. I really think that's the best solution. 

Needing inspiration, please!

Mine are now fine, having been very rusty the first year or two. Some of them are in east facing beds with very little light and very wet ground, some in north facing raised beds, again with very little light, but possibly marginally drier, some have more light and have gravel under them, etc etc - they're all growing exactly the same. They've certainly had just as much rain as the previous years, and the cold doesn't affect them adversely.  

I think they're better once they're more established. There's no other reason for mine being better than before

Anyone watched the George Michael documentary? Really moving. I'd seen a bit, but thought I'd sit and watch from the beginning.  Seeing him recording the Stevie song (They Won't Go When I Go ) ...jeez. You have to be that good to do it justice. It's a huge song. 

I really should be painting before I collect daugter but....

Lovely pix Liri - probably not a good idea to be out taking photos during the storm anyway! Makes a nice change for kids to see something attractive and interesting on a school walk  

I love those contrasts Dove. Incredible to think there's a relatively small distance between where you were and where the storm was on the other side. 

Nice rainbow scroggin.

I caught a lovely  one when I was out one day, but forgot I could have done a panorama to get it all in...  

Allium Sphaerocephalon

They flower quite late on compared to tulips James, July /August , so it depends if you're looking for things to flower together, or for a succession. They're also quite tall, so they generally need other planting around them for support.

You could certainly plant them in the same location as they both like well drained soil and plenty of sun

They'd be blowing up the road as OH is cycling back home ... he could've ended up with some trendy headgear 

See original post


Youngest and myself are having leftover spag bol. I made  soup earlier as I'd done stock from our recent roast chicken. Do you 'convert' your carcasses BL?  I love home made soup. 

Was wondering if you'd been blown away today Ppauper, or has it managed to miss you in the north?

Aye - it's never good to have to chase 'em down the road Dove
