You must be very relieved Maud, hospitals are not a very nice place to spend your time, although we are all glad they are there when the need arises.

We have got a reasonable crop of apples, especially the James Grieve step over, it has done very well, about 40 apples from a small tree. The others have been a bit hit and miss. Good crop of pears though.

Yes Dan, buddleia are as tough as old boots, virtually indestructible so give them the chop now and you will have lots more growth next year.

What's the weather like in your area?

Good morning all.

Nr Lincoln.

Beautiful morning here, a bit chilly but lovely blue sky. The top temperature is given as 13c today so the days are definitely getting cooler, and the evenings are drawing in.

You have to get amove on the get jobs done, no going out after tea!

Have a good day.

Going off subject a bit, sorry, we went to a caravan site in Norfolk last year and on the 2 adjoining pitched were 2 couples and between them they had 6 dog, complete with Crufts style agility course, the dogs were no problem, just the owners giving them instructions very loud voices.Interesting though, but will not be returning to that site.

I hadn't missed Nigel until you pointed it out, must have been too interested in what MD had to say.

Good morning all.

Are you all having a lazy morning?, it's very quiet here.

SCD was a bit better last night, As you say Gary, CRH must have been spoken, he seemed a lot nicer last night. I think Jerry Hall is so laid back, she'll have to improve. Not so many "Yeah"s from DB, thank goodness. It really grates, Bruce, no better

Beautiful morning here. I got lots done yesterday, bulbs planted, veg garden cleared up a bit, bean rows taken down by OH. He does most of the veg gardening and I supervise

Just going to get our treat of the week, a fry up, then nothing else until tea.

Becks -- Jess looked lovely, she is so cute. I bet she was worn out when she got home.

Have a good day , ChrisX

Good morning all.

Beautiful morning here hope it is the same where you are.

I watched SCD last night, enjoyed the show, but CRH and Sir Brucie, please lets hope they get a grip, and as for standing ovations, neither performances warranted them. DB was I think the most constructive of all the judges, what she said was encouraging which is what the contestants need at this time, no the nasty put downs from CRH. He overplayed the nasty streak last night, it did him no favours.. As for the extradition issue, long over due.

Sorry about your shed Dean, it's a sign of the times I'm afraid, lets hope they catch the blighters and deal with them accordingly.

Well I've got that off my chest, so have a nice day everyone, play nicely, will be back later.

Becks, hope Jess enjoys her party.

Good afternoon everyone.(only just)

Not a bad Autumn day here. Bit of blue sky but a bit on the chilly side. As you say Frank, still lots of colour left in the garden, and the trees are just starting to turn, so hopefully a good"back end"

Have a good day all.

Yes I've seen him on TV both he and his wife garden in the nude, bit chilly at the moment you wouldn't know where to look if you visited on a clothes optional/free day. But he has got the most beautiful garden.

I was thinking more of pobs as suggested some time ago, but that's enough to put you off food for good..

Did anyone watch Hunted last night?, it was a bit frantic, but looks as though it might turn out to be a good series.

Watched Wartime Farm didn't like the look of the food on there much no luxuries, just what you could get to fill your stomach, sorry to mentions the S word Geoff.

Oh dear Geoff, take it easy today and get the kitchen staff to bring you nourishing little snacks, and plenty of drinks, not  the alcoholic kind, hope you are soon fighting fit.

Shopping day today, visit Mum, visit daughter who has just got back from her hols in Portugal, OH hoping for a bottle of port will be handy for C***********.

Having a rest from the garden as we had some overnight rain, but not the strong wind some of you have had. Might get some bulbs into their pots later if I have time.

Thanks for the pepper suggestions, will get onto Delias site to investigate.

Have a nice day.

I am looking for recipes for sweet peppers my OH doesn't like them so why we grow so many I don't know.

We seem to give more away than we eat, and this year they have done particularly well.

Always feel a bit sad when it gets to this time of year, although the trees are starting to look spectacular with the Autumn tints.

Hot water bottle in, it's a bit chilly tonight, and the weatherman said we could have a touch of frost. so I'm of to The Land of Nod.

Night folks.
