Contact dermatitis from plants

Posted: 30/09/2013 at 12:29

Sorry Bouleversee I can't help you at all but I'm responding here so this gets bumped back up the list in the hope that someone can help/advise/confirm/refute for you. Doesn't sound like contact dermatitis to me though to be honest. Hope you get to the bottom of it. Heather

I will/I won't grow that again

Bizzie Lizzie,

My Roma's don't have many seeds either. They are fleshy, but so, so watery but you've given me an idea for what to do with them when the rest of them eventually ripen. If I roast them first to remove a lot of the water they'll very probably make a rather nice tomato sauce. Thanks, Heather x

My tomatoes are finally doing very well indeed. Bumper crop but they're taking forever to ripen (although its now 50/50 ripe/unripe). Most varieties i'm very happy with (names escaping me just now though) but one I won't be bothering with again are Roma's. Very disappointing, watery and tasteless. They offer a lot of promise when they're all read and shiny but in reality a thumbs down from me. 

Absolutely nothing working properly today

Hi Daniel,

Took a few days out as explained above, logged back on today and no problems at all, all fixed.

Thank you so much for working so hard and so tirelessly getting this fixed.

Hi all,

Dave got fed up of talking to me looking like a blank faced bloke so he sent me this lovely picture to use for my profile. I'm looking very chic I think!

Thanks Dave xx

Pumpkin carvings

Wow they are fantastic. I'll give the carving a miss, I'm rubbish at anything arty and I'd probably just end up with something looking like a blob with a ruddy great hole in the middle lol. And even if I did manage it, if I stuck a couple of those outside my front door at night and then went outside and came face to face so to speak I'd die of fright lol I'm such a wimp I'd scare myself, soo dark in my garden!

Hello all,

Just a quick note to say that I'm giving up with this site for a couple of days until its (hopefully) sorted out. I'm responding to posts but end up typing to myself as it doesn't update, latest discussions or most recent posts aren't updating, can't edit my profile pic etc etc. Surely this can't just be a cache issue as we've been told. Server issue?!

Be back on to talk to you all in a couple of days, take care til then, Heather x

Still having trouble. Can't upload lovely new profile pic sent to me by Diddy (thanks Dave!). Having trouble getting anything to update (latest new discussion on here is one from mid afternoon yesterday) and I'm often typing completely to myself as the updates aren't working properly. Hope they sort it out soon. Maybe by then I'll have a lovely pic instead of a featureless face!

Eating weeds
