A 9 month old Border Collie called Floss. Complete bundle of energy.

what is best - indeterminate or deteminate tomatoes?

Agree with Dove, I find bush varieties do better outside for me than the cordon type. You could try an experiment with Gardeners Delight which can be grown either way and see which is better for .

New allotment OMG...Part 2...

I hope the GW team are listening to the members on the forum. This is a really good site but it's in danger of losing its contributors if it doesn't act to repair the damage.

It's so nice to pop in here and check on people's progress, achievements and sometimes the disasters which befall us all. 

Why is it that so many times 'change' is seen as progress, when what is needed is evolution not revolution.

On a gardening note I've put out my brassicas, a mix of Calabrese, Savoy's, Summer cabb and Sprouts. All tucked away in a butterfly proof enclosure. Also planted out my Celeriac as forecast is for warm nights now and as I'm off to Wales for a week on Sat, they will fair better in the ground than left in pots.

Fingers crossed that these issues are resolved.

You know what we all need? Some silly pictures to make us chortle.

Lets see if the forum will let me oblige...

scroggin - we've tested this, and posting pictures from mobiles appears to be working as it should be. Have you waited a few moments for the picture to appear? The uploader is a little slow at the moment.

 Nora, the problem is if I try to add a picture to a new thread, nothing happens. It works fine on an existing thread!

Still can't post a pic on a new thread. I hope the ' improvements' doesn't kill this forum. It would appear none of the users were consulted before the changes were made. I'll drop back in a couple of days to see if it's improved, at the moment it's way too messy.

No worries Hazel, I've been called much . . Glad you like the pic of Floss, she does like to 'pose' .

It appears I can post pics on an existing thread but can't start a new thread. Hope they get the 'bugs' sorted, the new format doesn't seem to have many threads. Anyway I thought I'd try and add some cheer with a pic of my BC pup Floss posing in the bluebells.
