HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 23/09/2014 at 19:35

No can't see a way to enlarge - will be a problem

My Acidenthras have come out at different times - some out now but all planted at same time.

Stuffed an overlarge courgette/marrow with a spicy lamb mix - recipe on GoodFood.com

 Thanks fro welcomes - will be an intermittent visitor though.

 

 

HELLO FORKERS!

Hello (she says tentatively)

Not been here for a long time, though have looked in and answered on some threads

Decided  .to say Hi as I have just had a right performance forum.getting back onto the Forum. so decided to make it worthwhile.

I have had  to find everything (it was saved )e hard disc cleared , a new system put on and am now trying to find everything.

I seem to have lost my bookmarked nurseries etc

And am finding this print very hard to read - anyone know how to enlarge it??

 

Love that 'card' Star Gaze Lily - just about sums up how I feel

 

sorry who is this?

Tomato variety suggestions

This year I'm growing a ribbed beefsteak type called Miranda - lovely flavour and really good sizes and what is more plenty of them

 For a delicious small plum (like a cherry tomato ) I am growing one called Santolina


Will definitely grow them next year as well

I made a sort of mistake as I have now learnt that Goldfinches can feed on the seed heads in winter. Should have left one standing

BUT I will know for next year!

Conference pears

Following the instructions on here I have just picked my first crop of Concorde pears. I didn't even have to twist just lightly lifted the fruit and they came away.

Now I will leave them in a bowl for a few days near the bananas and see what happens . I will let you know

I have some lovely pears - first crop ever and was wondering when to pick them as they just seem hard. Will twist a couple and then see.

By the way last year i was given some and made the most delicious pear and vanilla jam. (recipe I found on interent) Will have another go this year but will make sure I use preserving sugar, which I don't usually bother with

But that costs and i can have them for free.

I have just taken 10 cuttings off the side shoots,. shall have to see.

If I have success I can ditch the originals in the spring, if not I still have them there as a base.

 

the idea originally was to have them like a lacey screen that moved and could be seen thru into the flower bed beyond, sort of worked but flower bed beyond is rubbish!!!
