My Blackcurrants taste like chicken

Hi Katiejane,

I do that with raspberries and blackberries and sloes, of course.

My gooseberries are big enough to cook with now but later on tthey turn red and can be eaten straight form the bush. I don't know the variety. The blackcurrants will need a few more days to ripen. The cordial sounds lovely. I might try that.

Good morning all,

Hope you are all enjoying the weather.

I know how you feel about your son, Tina. My son had an operation on his thyroid recently and had to get information from his wife. Still our babies though. He's fine now and I hope your son will be too.

Hello :)

Hi Susan,

Welcome. I hope you like cake as much as gardening.

Bullfinches took all the flowers off my winter flowering honeysuckle. They strip the flowers looking for insects.

I totally agree about the  Anthisan. I've never been stung by a bee or wasp but if I get bitten by a horse fly I put Anithisan  on as soon as possible otherwise I get really sore itchy lumps.

Nettle stings don't bother my now but the cream is good if the grandchildren get stung.

You wouldn't like the snakes, Verdun.   I've lived in Cornwall for about 35 years and do feel very privileged to live here.

Good morning all.

So sorry about your fish, TT. Was it lack of oxygen? How many are left?

Hi addict,

I'm 27 as well. I live in Cornwall too. There's a rumour that Verdun and Monty are one and the same person.

I've got a cottage style garden. Not too tidy but my excuse is that it's good for wildlife.

A few years ago I was lucky to buy about 8 acres of old mining land opposite the cottage. Left as it was apart fro creating a pond.

 My dog is a German Shepherd called Khan but more content to lie in the shade these days as he is 27 in dog years.

The daftest thing you've done in your garden
