You know, Mike Allen, you would be so much more accepted on this site if you learn to just take your place among the other gardeners here.

You really dont need to tell the whole story of your working years as a park keeper, policeman  so on, on every single thread you start. In fact, you dont need to start 2 or 3 threads a day in your own name, you could join in on other peoples threads.


If you want to chat, join in on the chat thread.


If you have advise on a gardening question, join in on that.



You will get yourself disliked with all this bragging, and that would be a shame, as its obvious you are desparate to fit in, but yours is not the way.








I know of at least 10 on here that stated off gardening along side their dads from small children.



You like my cold frame?

If you picked a couple off each truss they would get even bigger. They reckon to leave only one beefsteak on a truss. I couldnt do that but the growers for shows do.

The first car someone got in our road was a dark grey triumph something, it looked like loads of square panels bolted together, i cant remember what it was called.

We had listen with mother on the radio

I did wear a crash helmet back then, I would go to the coffee bar rigged out in jacket, boots with zips up the back and those little yellow esso men hanging from them and my pride and joy, a white silk scarf with a long fringe.

My mum would say dont you be going to that cafe, where else would I go dressed like that?

I would go on anyones bike that offered a ride.

Many times we did a ton down the Epping New Road.

Anyone live near there?

Ah, radio luxenboug under the bed covers.

I wasnt into  pop music then, I was a rocker, then straight into folk so Dylan,  joan Baez and Julie Felix were my favs. I am still into folk music now.

There was an inbetween era of beatniks, tight jeans, big black jumpers no shoes.
