Nice one fishy! 

Lyn is pleased to see you here. Hope all well, Lyn and family fine. 

What do you have left to do in the garden this year?

Thats is a good idea but I find they rust out on the joins where the screws go in. We have already replaced one, OH made a wooden one, and now the other has gone. Its very exposed up here and very damp and windy, long 2 x 2 s banged well into the ground seems to work, its the tops that go.  

The obelisks have lasted just 3 years, although it was only the plants holding them up last year!

I sprinkled a bit of lime on my cabbage patch, still eating them now and lots in the freezer.

Agree Edd, my dad has never used one.

Do you still do the bare bot test to see when the soil is warm enough for planting.

I have this one but will it get made up this year. It will need 3ft stakes to keep it stable, they do rock in the wind

I think I am pretty much ready for the compost to go on, hopefully crack it by next weekend.

There is a lot of greenhouse work bug that can be done anytime.

Dove! There was me thinking you were the lucky lady. I am pleased to see you have 'fixation' for horticulture.

I think you have brushed up on your typing skills to no avail he will always be a big headed obnoxious man, how can he be sad and lonely with a new lady friend, not very complementary is it.

I grow groups of chives round mine but never had it, dad reckons she cant fly this high above sea level. I dont know if he's having me on, but in all the years he's grown them the fly has never struck.

HELLO FORKERS!

Punkdoc, are you going to say that we will all be doing very expensive wee?

Can be avoided by placing a 2ft high plastic barrier around your carrot bed or grow in a 2ft high raised bed.
