HELLO FORKERS! November Edition

Posted: 04/11/2016 at 14:28

I spent the morning digging out acanthus, and digging up bulbs...... so that I can plant bulbs. My front shin hurts now so I'm going to soak it in the bath. The sky has gone a funny colour here, hope its not Sheffield snow on the way. It does seem to be quite warmish, around 10 C here. I still have a huge bag of double daffs to plant, some tulips and loads of alliums that I dug up earlier on in the year.

Donald or hillary?

Unless you are using heat and growlights to extend the day length, I don't give much chance for courgettes at this time of year.

Phew. I thought A & E were going to have a problem with said vegetables accidentally falling into various orifices.

Where are you.? I would have thought most courgette plants in UK are about to be finished.

I would pinch the tops out, but if there is any heat in your greenhouse, they need to be somewhere colder. Take the propagator lids off, they will encourage mould.

Thats useful, Dove. I may just use the wording as a statutory declaration.

Or I could just put a rocket up their ****

Just make sure the cup is the right sort. I read about a man who had been using his girlfriends "mooncup" for his mouthwash because his usual tumbler was missing. OOps.

Inside greenhouse last night with doors shut was 2 C. Heater plugged in now and checked, Thermostat on 6C.I have lifted Echeveria and removed cannas from tunnel. Double primroses in small pots have been ejected into tunnel. Still more dahlias to lift, but the frost has not touched the big cafe au lait, so I'm leaving it. I can't see it from the house, but single blooms still look good in a vase.

Bank will not certify anything for me. They don't do that apparently. I am going to send copies of all six of my passports , together with something from the tax man that includes my NI number and see if that satisfies them. Otherwise it's more expense with a solicitor.

My flowers ... (2)

The first one is a Roscoea, still flowering. The second one is a Nicotiana , you are right. This is Nicotiana sylvestris. They grow to about 5 ft and smell nice at night.
