Good Morning all.

Good to see and hear about all new arrivals, hope the weather is kind for planters & sewers this weekend.

We will have to see if the ground dries enough to put ladder up to prune our apple tree. Not looking promising, currently too boggy to spread the weight on a plank.

Verdun you are right, such a nice forum and lovely supportive people. As Dove says it is important that your friend gets support, some people think support is purely practical help, but remind your friend that talking is often the best support.

Clari, wot you like?  Hope the injuries heal soon. I once hurt my back playing Scrabble.

Glad you are feeling better after the fresh air Lily & Panda "you are getting there"

Soz if I've missed any poorly folks. ...

I knew there was one! Spike glad to hear all is well with his eye.

David K, in case you are looking, hope all went well with operation.

Pleased Dove isn't down a rabbit hole

Phew, worn out now..BFN have a good day.

Hope the poorlies and pain soon go. Chin up Panda.

Think I might be a horse, I'm always getting scruffy.

Sun has now come out so maybe a walk is on the cards.


You know you are getting old when...

indoor tomatoes: pots v growbags

Sorry I thought you'd grow them last year. Not read your thread correctly

Maybe you would do better with outdoor varieties in pots, so you won't need a greenhouse.

indoor tomatoes: pots v growbags

I think growbags will be very messy indoors. You need to put drainage holes in them so you'd need a grow bag container, you can get polystyrene ones but even with those it would be a two person job turning them around, much easier with pots. Also consider if any of the plants become diseased and you have to remove them, it will be a messy job. 

 I prefer my green house tomatoes growing in pots and the bigger the better. Have tried grow bags and find they dry out too quickly.

Out of interest what type did you grow ? Bush varieties I imagine. If not how did you support them?

Best wishes for a speedy recovery David. We'll keep the thread going won't we snappers ?

In Yorkshire we aren't unduly cold, just everything is very wet.

Glad to see your new post Bill, was wondering how you were.

Good morning all. Very wet and breezy, and distinctly colder here.

Don't know what I'm going to be doing today but it won't be in the garden.

Hi all, think lurge is catching, only did a bit of weeding from path, and needed a rest ! Got an ache on my right side, lack of movement over Xmas me thinks Can't be stitch, haven't moved fast enough.

Garden totally sodden. Birds having a bath on the lawn.

Clari hope your back doesn't flare up.

BFN, must sort out a meal, fish and salad to compensate for Xmas gluttony.
