I have grown sweet potatoes a couple of times with limited success but as I like them so much I am trying again this year

Good evening

I have been reading and lurking but not feeling very chatty at the moment  We have had to wait 3 weeks for Aunties funeral  - it is tomorrow - also my birthday

I made up a basket of beautiful flowers to take to the funeral.

I enjoy doing a bit of family history ,too - I have a subscription to ancestry if anyone needs anything looking up

Pam could you pop over to my house, I have lots of dust! A slice of fruit cake would be good too!

You would be very welcome to a slice of fruit cake but I will pass on the dusting

Evening All

Lovely photos of Bosvigo  Lovely cake  After all the talk of cake yesterday I made Doves recipe for a boiled fruit cake - yummy  Well done Jean

I haven't ventured into the garden today - being dusting and polishing instead 

Just washed up and going to watch Dance for comic Relief after the rugby finishes

Hi lilylouise, wow your greenhouse setup sounds fabulous! Lucky you for winning one! Do you end up with a lot of lovely produce? Has your largest one got beds inside? Do you change the soil very often or can you get by with adding nutrients and feed to it? Hope you don't mind all the questions.

Hope you've warmed up bunnysgarden. It was an exotic -4 where I live!

Hello Tootles - all my greenhouses have a path with gravel each side so I don't actually plant into the border.I do usually get a lovely harvest  Pam LL x
