hello everyone, I make no excuses- there's no way I can keep up with all the posts here

I'm a pleb too- something In my head thinks that this was a Marxism  theory but not sure.

I've just come on here and noticed there's a lot of rubbish/selling/spammy post on the forum tonight.

I'm going to ignore them and hope they go away

Sounds like it's working for you I have a couple of home made cold frames which are brilliant. I'm a seed grower,this year I started a lot of mine on my kitchen windowsills and then moved them into the coldframes to grow on. My winter was really mild so things did really well.

kate- sounds like my sort of place I'm not going to spend a fortune on grit that is just going into the ground no matter how much it's meant to do the garden good..

Yes Matt we are neighbours, at the moment my annuals are still doing very well, infact coming into their own. I'm hoping for another mild winter here, last year I had a couple of frosts (not hard) and that was it. Managed to grow lobelia from seed in Jan without a heated greenhouse, but you never know what will happen this year.

I love all spring bulbs Sarah, just want you need after the winter

in my experience I find this board a great place, I haven't found that people take offence if your answer/post is genuine and if there is a disagreement about the advice so be it. We all bring our own experience.

I agree with others who talk about the written medium, as so much is lost through just text.Don't know the exact figures but non verbal communuication is key to how we get on with each other, so when communicating on the internet it's a lot more tricky and open to misinterpretation.

I always put some thought into how I phrase threads/posts.

I agree it is very much like workplace emails it is always worth pausing and considering your response before you hit the send button.

As for sock puppetts, well that's opened another defination- I always thought that they were your dads socks with fuzzy felt eyes on them...............but great modern meaning.

I do have to say though- don't they have anything better to do?

Blackbirds

Took great enjoyment last year watching the blackbirds jump and grab the ivy berries from the hedge, they loved them. Hope they are going to do the same this year
