Yes, that bit was just on now. He's just sown Autumn King ones. That's what ours are, so will be interesting to see how he gets on with those. Ours are in the ground and in containers.

Excellent! Thankyou Gary!

Thanks for the tip David! Although I knew they weren't ready, but every morning when we go out, she ruffles her carrots 'hair' and says 'Are they ready now?', so I let her pull one to prove they weren't!

Never got to Wyevale due to visitors Probably best not going now. All the good stuff probably gone. No chance of getting there today.

Does GW come up in the iplayer, catch up thing? I want to see Montys carrots! LOL

I only just saw the end of last nights programme, where they were looking at geraniums and the potato test by Monty, but Jess wanted to see how big her carrots were today, so she pulled one! They are only 9 weeks old, but she thinks because they are bushy on top, they're ready! Hmm, bit longer to go yet Jess!

But I'm still waiting on word from my eldest daughter before I can go to Wyevale. Typical teenager. (Lives with her Dad. Only comes to Mums on the weekend if nothing better to do)

Ah, got you David. It's actually the seeds I was really interested in going for. I'm hoping to go tomorrow, if no-one ruins my plans!

joslow, getting hold of some eating grapes to grow would be wonderful, as my little one costs me a small fortune with them. She loves them, but I just love the look of the vines growing, so decorative is an option.

Oh Zoomer, I long for the day when I can use my cookbooks properly. I've just got to wait for my little one to change her preference from fishfingers!

But she does love her veg, so not all bad. Was it a one off mag, or a regular publication over the year?

Oh no Lilly! Yay, you have flowers, and so has Loz, so that leaves me in the corner on my own! Oh well, I can party on my own I suppose. Just leave the biscuits!

Aaw, never mind. Something for me to look into for next year.

Still non existent. I gave in and bought some liquid feed yesterday, and am poised, ready for action!

When you say the Monty Don book is more like a diary, do you mean his own personal one, or a diary of when we should be doing/planting things?
