Hello Forkers January 2017 Edition

Hi all.

One of those horrible winter's days, cold and grey.

Wasted half a day in outpatients yesterday, sad to say the NHS is really struggling.

On a brighter note, am starting to think what I might need for holiday.

A day for seed organisation and plant catalogue perusing.

Have a good one.

Hi all.

Freezing here as well, car temperature gauge says minus 5.

Off to hospital for OP appointment, funny how the place I worked in for over 20 years now terrifies me.

Be careful everyone.

No point applying potash at the moment, wait until early summer.

Worth giving a good mulch with some compost in Spring.

LG the L.

That is interesting, I am 58 too. I was there on and off from 1984 to 1991. Worked a bit abroad at various times during that period too.

Not trying to sound pervy, but I like the sound of DM's and tulle ballet dress, I suppose it's my punk roots.

I am reading Walls Come Tumbling Down, which is the history of Rock Against Racism, which of course was a punk / reggae founded organisation.

Hi all.

Very cold outside, but sun is trying to break through.

OH has given me a list of chores to do, but might get out to remove some mole hills later.

Please help

I would go for an Acer. Many different types, interest a lot of the year and do well in pots.

They need a long stratification period, up to 20 weeks is recommended.
