I think that it's your garden, and if you want to grow flowers instead of veg, that's your prerogative. In a small garden , I think Potatoes are a waste of valuable space.

Ive never had any problems with Apple. The laptop I'm using is ten years old, and apart from increasing memory which we have paid for, I can't think of anything that Apple keep wanting you to pay extra for. I find Apple products much more user friendly and intuitive.

Somewhere warm I hope. Hubby is in the shetlands. He says its very bleak, no trees at all, a few sheep, and no flowers, not even a snowdrop.

Last night while stripping paper off the kitchen wall, I noticed two large nuts sticking out of the wall. I thought that maybe they were extra large bolts for the living room radiator. My brother had to come and move a wire for the plasterer and I mentioned them. It appears that they are gas cap offs. For years I opened the cupboard with the mugs in and swore there was an odd whiff of gas. I have repeatedly been told that I am imagining it as there is no gas on that side of the kitchen. At this my brother fetched a spray to test for leaks. Lo and behold I have had a gas leak for 20 years.

It is now fixed and the kichen is replastered. Tomorrow I may get a sink back.

Hosta, is all that weight loss due to giving up alcohol or are you dieting as well?

I have to say the Pina Coladas did for me on holiday. Normally, if I'm diving most days, I lose weight or stay the same. I have to say, when I asked for a diet coke at lunch, I was the exception not to be drinking alcohol.. Filling a glass several times during a meal was usual as well. Some people were even on the "champagne" style fizz for breakfast. 

I dont suppose a load of takeaway or microwave  ready meals will be good for me this week.

Shirley tomatoes are F1 and are a specific cross. The progeny will be F2 and can no longer be called Shirley. It will still be a tomato but with different characteristics.

Marmande are open pollinated and will come pretty much to type.

W T Browns have a 99p offer on at the moment.
