Hello Forkers . November 2017

Posted: 02/11/2017 at 09:39

Hi all.

Never really read the old classics, but i am an avid reader, always used to struggle to know which authors to read, so a few years ago I thought, perhaps I should listen to the experts.

Now I try and read the various literary prize winners. Most are great, some seem to be written in a different language and there are quite a few, where the author has clearly been on high doses of mind altering drugs.

Sorry Hosta, but all i seem to be able to do at the moment is sleep. I am getting a bit worried about pressure sores.

Hi all.

Getting very close now Chicky.

I know this will sound ridiculous, but all i can think about this morning, is how am I possibly going to be able to dig my Cannas and Dahlias up?

I know it does not matter, but I have been cultivating some of them for 20 years and they feel a bit like children.

Hope you all have a good day.

No, just a meaningless label i think.

Hope they were not wild Snowdrops.

Weed ID reguired and which weedkiller?

What worries me, is that there is a big difference between using something because it is safe and using something because it helps you to run a thriving buisness.

Both are possible, but in this case most would agree that the product is not safe, but it does help you run your buisness.

I admit to using Glyphosphate from time to time, although less and less as the years go by and tend to prefer the sticky paste.

It worries me glasgowdan, that as your only aim seems to be making as much money from your clientele as possible, you will inevitably do anything to make the job quicker.

I am disturbed that some posters don't believe there is any evidence that Glyphosphate is bad for health, I can only imagine that some very selective reading has been done.

I agree that it is amazing that Mum still wants to help. Sadly she is virtually blind and not very steady on her feet, maybe not the perfect combination at the moment.

Have just sat watching a flock of Long Tailed Tits in one of the Hawthorns, joyous.

No, I am afraid not.

Hi all.

Thanks for all the good wishes and suggestions.

I slept for over 12 hours yesterday, which i am sure was good for me.

Funniest thing last night, was talking to Mum [ 90 ] and she thought it might be a good idea, if she were to come up and look after me

Todays plan is to wrap up, walk slowly round the garden and hug some of my trees.

Light is more important than heat, whilst indoors.

They should not go out, until after the last frosts, but they will need continually potting on, into bigger pots, whilst they are indoors.
