Lizzie I'll arm wrestle one to death for a lump in the freezer 

BM you'll have fun in that lovely garden.

Matty I thought NO gardening  take care of yourself.

Thankfully I have no experience of ME so best I can say is  just do what you can and rest when your body tells you. 

Fritt 25yrs worth isn't bad  

Hope all okay this evening off now to hold down a sofa

Sadly, not really. Your vet can advise you on supplements that may help rather more.

Steve, I don't have a dog just an under gardener  Is there any benefit in giving cold liver oil tablets to dogs? I know quite a few people who do. OH get's fed them regularly and shoulders don't crack as often as without them or it might be copious amounts of virgin olive oil I feed him

Fritt  I think best check the clips are okay on the rest of the glass and rather than a temporary measure which will cost and need sorting later get new glass. If weather is bitter maybe bubble wrap but it will sag each time it rains.  Hugs, I like my GH better than my house

I'm relieved that buttercup posted 

I've eaten them and liked them thought they had an earthy nutty taste..I didn't explode  I do know they spread and the chap who gave me a boiling was having a job getting rid of them from his garden. Thankfully I didn't have room to plant any 

Growing potatoes in bags

Posted: 17/02/2015 at 15:35

I only grow in bags and a potato barrel don't have room in the garden. I use multi purpose compost some organic potato feed mixed in, I've never put drainage in the bottom as the bags have adequate holes. After 1st & 2nd earlies are harvested I refill the bag with the used compost add a bit more and more feed and sow late carrots. All have produced well    End of the season sacks get emptied onto the flower beds.

Heck I've only been outside 3 hours and you lot have all sorts of news.

Think I should post a  and add names and  and ditto. Sorry to all who don't get a personal mention. 

Panda good luck with job hunting for two  never made soup with sprouts in, or did I dream that ingredient?

Winter I'm sad to hear about your OH and being unable to leave home. I hope you do learn to drive, I am well capable of driving but lost the confidence a few years ago to venture into the unknown. I'd feel lost without my car and the independence it gives me even if it only drives around this borough and it goes to GC's on auto pilot   I have a friend who didn't learn to drive until she was mid 50's and now goes the length and breadth of the country..go for it gal x

Pdoc lovely pictures thanks  Any sign of growth from the blue beauties? I am as ever hopeful for a flower from mine this June. 

Lizzie     I quite like Venison casserole  do you have a large freezer ?

Gg you've got that milk man well trained 

Two dogwood cut back and chopped up, some more weeds pulled and GH's ventilated, not a mega effort but I have been thinking really hard   about where to extend veg bed to, and what shapes I want for flower beds rather than boring borders. Will fess up to standing and admiring hellebores for quite a while...your donation is looking lovely Fidget  TY. 

Also had the washing out, but you don't really want to know about that....booooring
