How did you get into gardening?

Posted: 15/08/2014 at 19:05

Hi potteringabout nice to meet you  

I'm sad that you are unable to do the things you loved doing. I admire the fact that you have tried to adjust and now spend in your garden  I can't image what I would feel like were I in your situation. Best wishes.

Rained off here

Got plants out of pots into garden Weeding done  Beetroot, Beans and Chard picked and the Toms in GH attended to. My towels have dried on the twirly thing  I don't have a dryer so things get put in conservatory or if I don't want to look at them they go in dining room, bit full in there with brother's new lawn mower but every cloud, it is now being used as a table for cuttings

Pdoc as Verdun says don't beat yourself up ! Or I will come round and give you a slap  Not sure exactly where you live but I'll loiter in SM's early on Friday mornings and get any potential Pdocs

Lizzie I sometimes think the black cloud just lives over our house  it can be throwing down here and lovely 3 miles away at MrsGardens. Speaking of Mrs G where are you missus ?

I like my Dentist have followed him from different practices for years, now has his own. I don't have injections because he doesn't hurt me and I like to feel what is happening rather than go home and injection wear off and it hurt.  Only remember one session of injections when he pulled a molar out, it was infected after wisdom teeth surgery and root canal procedures didn't save it. It took a long time 5 injections and he had to drill it in half to extract it, afterwards my mouth was so numb, so when told to rinse and spit I missed the basin and spit on the floor  He still had be back   

Think it might be stopping raining  

Identify please

I had one some years ago and was told that to ensure it had huge dinner plate leaves you needed to cut it down each year, which I did.  Wish I hadn't that looks lovely. Mine died.  I believe they grow happily in Canada even in car parks, so doubt it was the S.Yorks weather. Must have been my cutting it back.

I got bulb fever last Autumn and planted loads, now I'm not sure where they all are so will have to look at photos so I'm not putting the spade through them

After bulb fever it was Hellebore mania, wonder what I'll succumb to next  think it will depend on the forum

Good morning all

It was much cooler yesterday and had it not kept raining on and off it would have been a great gardening day. Did get some cuttings taken and some clumps dug up aka known as divided    from plants that might not survive the Winter.

Today will be weeding and planting a couple of things that really should be in the garden and not in pots.

Congrats chicklet  

OL new car

Pleased to hear that Gardengirl is feeling better  Hope Pdoc survived the Dentist  Clari thinking about you and hope you are okay for the wedding tomorrow.  

Hope all the prep' finished for your weekend Dove

Off for a wander around forum, it's a bit wet underfoot so will inspect garden later.
