New BBC Gardening Show looking for Kitchen Gardeners

Posted: 20/02/2013 at 11:10

Morning everyone

I had an email from the local NGS organiser about the new show - I think it would be a lot of pressure so won't be asking for an application form

What can I grow in a greenhouse...

Posted: 19/02/2013 at 10:07
Hello Tootles I am lucky that I have 3 greenhouses- one was inherited from my Aunt,another I won in a competition and the largest one we bought secondhand
You will so enjoy yourself this year-I absolutely love my greenhouses - I grow tomatoes,peppers,chillies,aubergine ,cucumbers and 7 or 8 kinds of Basil's in the largest greenhouse,pot plants e.g begonias,streptocarpus,gloxinias,Archimedes etc. in what I call the new greenhouse(even though it is a few years old now) and anything left over goes in Aunties greenhouse along with some summer bulbs e.g polianthes tuberosa ,hymenocallis and bressera
I hope you have a very successful year

Good Afternoon I have had a good day so far

First thing we went to the Tile Warehouse to choose the tiles for the new shower room- I saw some I liked and a glass border which I quite fancy

Now I can order the flooring,too

I have been dusting and hoovering and have cleaned the kitchen - also done the ironing molehill

We are babysitting our 2 youngest Grandchildren this evening so I have made some ham and parmesan pinwheels to go with some nibbles which we will have either watching Mama Mia or Dancing for Comic Relief

Chunky chicken and veg soup is made - i will make some dumplings to go with it I think

The weather is supposed to be good tomorrow so I will be able to go and do some more potting up in the greenhouse

Have a lovely evening everyone
