Morning all. Sun out for 3rd day running, cannot be right.

Oh & rain...hope your working day goes quickly.

No cocktails today, tomatoes to put in a Mum's & might risk one courgette in her sheltered garden, rest remain in GH. Did our toms yesterday along with beans which happily have not been nibbled overnight. The warmth has fetched the blinking lily beetles back, got 4 yesterday.

Have a good day everyone.

bluejan..loved that one

I now plant in bins don't have space. When I grew in soil, planted at req'd depth and left them. When they started to show I started to earth them up, and kept doing until they flowered. Maybe piling up at sewing is a way of saving work, dunno...they'll be fine as long as light doesn't get to actual potatoes.

Nothing except taking thing in and out of greenhouse. Loved my time on sofa Tina, Pringles next time please.

Fairy have you given away all the cake ? it would have saved..looking at weather tomoz I could have driven up for a slice.

Buzy..I feel for you all that plot and all wet through.

Where to start?

Frank I worked for NCB for 15 yrs made redundant or should I say woudn't accept redundancy, didn't have a year on strike to sell my job...ended up sent to a financial British Coal (as re-named place ) of work, hated every rotten 5 yrs. Became ill. I get so angry about past pit closures and now the lack of skills to mine in U.K. even open cast. Nuclear   My Mum's Dad died in 1936 in the Wharncliffe Wood pit disaster, she was 8 her brother 6, he'd swapped a shift with a mate one Sunday night. His friend had knocked on door just after dinner that day and they sorted it. He was gassed. ..Going back to gardening my Gran said many years later..she told me a lot..."|fat lot of good drinking boiled cabbage water did him that day"  apparantly it was good for your health. Phew done that one!

Wind turbines. I just can't understand why in Yorks they put them in the least windy places, my back garden is an ideal place..joking off course, but very open to fields.

MMp good on you with 'em gal! I love being wet ( good job day ) but poor swimmer, only swam a length once to get certificate and that was because I hated the teacher that much I tried to swim to grab the stick he poked in front of you to pull him in. I can swim ok but need to know I can put my feet on the bottom..AKA as feeble swimmer. I haven't had kids to teach..thanks Mum & Dad could both life save, Brother swam in paper boy competitions, but I take after my Grandma who was paddling champion of Yorks .

What to plant under Acer

Posted: 23/05/2013 at 14:05

I'm no tree expert but I didn't think you should plant under a new tree, just keep it weed & grass free. Sure someone on the forum will advise you.
