Pop up for pie Verdun, only about 45 minutes drive. Mum did enjoy them, I also made some yorkshires, cats eaten one!

I have planted out some more perennial sweet peas, still some left. All the tulips are now in, wow, amazing what I can do when I get my skates on. Time to get dinner ready. 

Anything on your Wish List?

I could send you some in the Spring Susan. I should think someone will start a seed and plant swap thread in Jan/Feb time.

Problem is he seems to upset everyone he comes in contact with.

His poor neighbour got a real slagging off and that was on an open forum. He has openly said on forums that certain people were talking 'out of their arse' and that was a tutor! No wonder he has no friends.

He refers to everyone as his dear friend, he lives in a town where he has been for most of his life, surely he must have someone there to talk to, he has two daughters and grand kids,  We have all tried to help him fit in with everyone one this site. , he takes no notice.

I suppose we can forgive the almost unreadable, badly spelt  posts if he is drunk,  

I dont think mid 70's is old, so sad, yes, old and lonely, no.

To deck or not to deck.....!

I dont like decking, but thats for you to decide, but dont worry about pots rotting it, pots should be lifted slightly anyway to allow for drainage, just put pot feet under, you can get some very pretty ones.

As headstone restorers, could I just say that if you are making them for a headstone or cremation tablet, only use the polystyrene forms, the wire will rust and that will soak into the stone, there is nothing that will get it out.

Once again. SORRY.

Frank, your post has reminded my OH of his living on the farm, he said as soon as they were old enough or big enough to ride a 2 wheeled bike, they were sent out to get the cows in, usually aged about 5/6, they cycled up the road and drove the cows back, mum milked by hand and dad carried or rolled the churns up to the road. His mum made the clotted cream, they were given the remainder to drink and the kids hated it. It was like a little dream farm in a very remote village in Devon, no mod cons when they went there, no loo or bath his dad dug a well.

It was terribly hard work to make a living but his dad gradually built it up and its quite a big farm now, all organic.

Its run by one of the brothers with the other 4 jointly owning the land.
