Gardengirl, I have a jostaberry , they are very vigorous growers , you need to give it a good prune to get fruit , which makes very nice jam 

Got 2 apple trees which are still small , 1 plum , 1 fig and 1 quince , planted this year 2 pear trees 

Also have 2 patio apple trees 

Strawberry , Rasberry & Gooseberrys are good croppers

Have a Happy New everybody

Hello , did see the Northern Lights , we where lucky , we booked a coach trip into the interior but was turned back back due a a very heavy snow storm , took us to camp site near coast and it wasn't very good but when we sailed the next day ,  in the evening out at sea , they appeared , it was truly amazing 

Bio , your meal sounds fab , we are having a dinner tomorrow just us 2 , prawns , steak with mushroom sauce & jacket potatoe followed by cheese , washed down with sparkling , red wine and port 

Glad to hear Pushkin has settled in 

Happy New Year

Gardengirl, rats and mice don't bother me either but o/h can't stand them !!!

Had a holiday in a French farm house , I was cutting wood in barn and I could hear the scream from the house when she found a mouse 

What is your weather like? (2)

YerMan , I agree it looks like a cherry tree , keep it trimmed as they can grow really large and put out suckers , you are right to just do a bit at a time 

Hello everybody, got back home today , hoping to go to plot on Saturday, subject to weather 

Gardengirl , the allotment association gets rat poison from the farmer that owns the site , very effective,  not the sort you can buy in the shops , I would see if your association get any supplied 

Happy New year

Hello , hope you all had a good Christmas, got home today , nice and sunny but cold , pleased the fog went 

Biofreak, thanks for update, please carry on updating us with calendar . Never heard about French weather prediction , you will have to let us known if it works out

I like the snow as well , last year we didn't have any , have had a winter holiday in Northern Norway to see Northern Lights and Iceland 

Happy new year
