Growing Cabbage in western PA

I also think success must be based on variety and also on ability to provide water. I've seen large cabbages growing in Greece in temperatures of 35C  the plots are watered by seep hoses or planted in deepish channels and watered late in the evening.

Good morning all.

White over -1C and been -2C in GH 

Verdun rest up  Edd I hope those feelings pass.

Dove the place where you lunched looks very interesting.

Hope all have a good day. 

Be careful what you wish for!

Hi Fieldtamer welcome to the forum  I'm so envious, or I would have been 15 yrs ago  

Anyone done any gardening today?

Posted: 09/02/2015 at 15:55

Scratch the stem and see if it is green, bet it is in which case it isn't dead  Others will help you  ID it

Bother!!!  I thought Edd needed a re-check because he suspected a huge big win and wanted to confirm, I'd already made my begging plant list out  

Victoria Sponge if you look in I have sent you a PM about hellebore photos 

It's still  here, reached 14C in shade and 23C in GH  with door and windows open

Bet they took some roasting I've had to Google Thass' person. 

I've found more snowdrops so here is by abundant offer

Not an earth shattering photo but I do have an Anemone in flower, but not in a place where I can lay on my stomach

 I've posted this elsewhere as I promised a photo in bloom of Hellebore Anna's Red

Verdun hope you feel well soon.

Our friend is a BT engineer with a tracker fitted in his van and a manager who monitors him like a so and so  his appointments are given to him he has no say in where or when  he does a job, reports back and is given another. 

EE (contractor) engineer has been. A nice young chap who can't do anything as the fault is exactly what we told the call centre is was  Nothing wrong inside the house the fault is outside and BT need to come, we now have to wait for a call from EE hopefully within the next 24hrs (India I suppose) confirming when BT can come. 

Pauline glad you got your problem sorted

Sunny here so I'm off into the garden.

Pauline I don't think BT engineers start work before 8am  Lucky you are getting BT I'm expecting one from EE. I do have some sympathy for engineers who have their work loaded by call centres who at times will tell you anything

Bekkie I meant I was dressed and fed by 7.45am not done HW  


Posted: 09/02/2015 at 09:29

Flashbacks to work days here all done and dusted and fed by 7.45am 

Pauline I hope your engineer turns up, I'm not holding my breath about one arriving here 

Lily I hope the funeral goes okay.
