Hi all

Just spent morning sorting through seeds I have and where spaces are that I need to purchase. and chucking old ones. Went to Harroate Flower show and then Malvern Autumn show (of course) as a result have loads of freebie seeds, but of course, does leave spaces. As 2 of you have said 'Hurst Greenshaft' is a good pea I will give it a go.

never grown squash before and hope to have an extra bed in new year - I have raised beds,- for squash, cougettes, etc. hope they don't grow too large!

Thanks for help. Any other suggestions greatfully received.

Those peas look amazing, Pam

Loved Skyfall all those thinking of going

What's for tea?

morning forkers.

bright and breezy today. Good gardening weather but as I am still banned think I will do seed catalogues.

Any one any recomendations especially in squash and peas. Grew Kelvedon Wonder this summer, foolproof I thought,  Not great though. Remember I am a fairly novice veggie gardener.

It takes a while to sort out new CH Jo, It;s getting the system no's in the right balance

No news of Kate. She'll have a lot of catching up to do, Those outfits!!

Putting OH down and he doesn't deserve it. He is in process of digging new flower bed for me - nearly finished . He digs big holes for large plants, rakes , mows tidies, chops wood. And for last couple of years has done most of cooking, cleaning and chauffering. But does grumble all time!!!

Guess I'm spoilt really.
