What's the weather like in your area?

Beautiful day here today as well, spent the afternoon strolling through an apple orchard at a nearby farm. I thought apples were supposed to be having a bad season but this orchard doesn't seem to have listened. The trees were packed with fruit.

Gardeners' Question Time

I've only recently started to listen to it, I find it informative, occasionally funny and over-all very enjoyable.

You really do have to seek out gardening shows though.

Frost in August? That would put me in a right old mood.

I think a repeat planted row of lavenders would look good in one of the long planters, like a mini lavender hedge, it would also smell great if you're sat outside. I'm sure others here will have suggestions too.

Green tomato chutney sounds delicious 

The rest of my tommies have so far been unaffected, they seem to particularly like growing by the side of my front garden, I think the light must be better there. We haven't had a large crop and most are like yours, still green, but we have picked more than some other years.

It's good to hear your plants have survived and are growing well.

Carrot Problem

They'll still be fine to eat. I had some that looked like that in a large bed last year, I left them in and pulled them up as and when I wanted. Some stayed in the ground right up until spring (survived the snow too), when I wanted to plant the bed up with flowers.

why don't people bother to read post before answering them.

I must say from the opening post I had very little hope for this thread, now it's one of my favourites.
