When, in the fifties , I was employed on a farm in France as a number 6 garden assistant. I was put in charge of the Tomatoes in a prehistoric glass house.

The " Madame" who consider all English people to be " a carbuncle on the backside of humanity" used to rebuke me for growing what she called  " cat faced rubbish."

i did try to prove that they tasted better ( which they most certainly did) than her favoured Marmande types. But she would not have it. So I had to catch the next Garry back to Newhaven. Tant pis!

  • Provided it was pertinent, concise, not more than two paras nor  more than two years out of date, it could be worthy of consideration.

 

Dare I say.

This forum is on a par with Laurel and Hardy

That's fine but I have a feeling that a proportion of my sub goes to fund this forum.

Prove to me it it self financing and I will reconsider.

Dare I say.

This really is Agony Aunt stuff and nought to do with gardening.

I think I would be better of with the Kitchen Garden people. 

I am surprised GW tolerate this type of thing.

I certainly will not be renewing subscription if it is wasted on this drivel.
