Good morning Andy & all.

Glad that you're feeling better today Andy. Father's Day will be tough for you and a lot of us. I do think that if you have good memories, which you have, it helps. I'll be taking a wander down the garden to say hello to "Roy" Rose, dunno what it is but it always makes me think of Dad, he loved grafting & showing roses.

Had plenty of rain overnight and it looks like more to come. Got the first flower on my courgettes and lunchbox cucumbers have plenty of tiny ones on.

Hope everyone has a good day & Happy Father's Day to all you Dad's out there.

Can I move my peony?

Nearly Green, we had to move a Peony for sentimental reasons when family member died. Knowing they don't like disturbance I was worried. It was planted in our garden and then 5 yrs later we moved, it lived in a pot for 2 yrs and then finally I braved it, split it into 3. I have 2, in different locations, hoping one place would suit, and a family member has the other. All three have flourished. I did prepared bed  / planter beforehand and took as much rootball as possible and did it quickly.

The original one was from my Mum in laws, and it had been transplanted from her Father's. So it must be over 40 yrs old. I hope you're successful.

Cucumber problems

Sound advice from Bob. I mound a bit of soil around the base of mine and don't get it wet. They are in buckets in the greenhouse, they've now got small cumbers on but I'm  still being careful not to overwater. Because they have a small old greenhouse to themselves I water the floor and keep it warm and humid. It's good for a facial steam  I was always told that tomatoes and cumbers didn't grow well together, and I do find, if you can, it's better to grow them apart.

I'm sure you'll still get some cumbers at GC or garden centre places. I think homegrown  cucumber is so lovely compaired to bought. Good luck.

Good Evening FORKERS

Dove broad beans

Fairy I steam them, haven't grown them, so don't often have fresh, bit pricey. I defrost frozen and steam, love them with gammon, new potatoes, peas, grilled toms and parsley sauce. Crickey just eaten my meal and I'm fancying again

It's bad when people are still having to put heating on, how ever do we make up costs for rotten Winter if still cold in June? I'm lucky our conservatory gets the sun so it's warm in there, but have eaten on a tray again, too chilly inside. Weather been breezy here, cloud, rain, sun..take your pick changes every 20 mins. Not done any gardening but hopefully will get chance tomorrow.

Yesterday I planted as many Polyanthus as I could home, about half, and rest have gone next door, so I can visit if they miss me.

Have a good evening all.

p.s. thanks Verdon for looking at the stags horn thing
