Hope poorly peeps are getting better.

Hi Lyn, I can remember when my dad used to vigilantly remove male flowers to prevent pollination and then bitterness, I think they were Telegraph now they do a F1 Telegraph that you don't have to remove males.  

I've had a look in my book  and the lunch box ones I've grown recently have been Cucino F1  and Emilie F1  both were very tasty and didn't need any faffing with!

Lyn I've grown lunch box sized cumbers for the last few years and haven't been instructed to remove male flowers. I haven't had to do that with any of the F1 hybrids.

Naughty Dove  

I haven't ever had a call like that but do plan to say I've pressed the button and the turntable is going around.

Hi Bekkie & Hosta 

Snow !!  Blast that will spoil your planned day for George. Hosta hope your knee is a little easier today. 

No hangover, the chocolate kept me sober, in fact I've just had a look in the box and there are only three left in it  OH must have eaten them when I nodded off  they don't put as many in a box as they used to do I know because I don't have a sore tongue. 

Today I'm at mum's for a visit, siblings visiting and then this evening out with friends for drinkies and a curry, I might be tired tomorrow morning
