Ok-world record for pumpkin was around 500 lbs-probably more now

How many computers do you have Becks?

We are still missing a lot of classmates today-and haven't heard from MissB in a while about Portugal hol or if she got that job

Have just got back 68p from Amazon for an out of date battery-so that is good and I get to keep the battery-yay

Well it is intermittent-still keeping an eye out for the woman that calls every few days-it is probably a stuck ball cock or something-no sniggering at the back please

I keep seeing adverts for Love Film direct to your computer-how does that work?

Begonia looks odd !

Yes-it is fine-you might find next year it will squatter-perhaps make it a central feature in a larger container?

Talkback: How to lift and store dahlias

Susan O'Meara wrote (see)

Hello! I am new to GW. Today I lifted 6 dahlia tubers from my pots. They were bought as small bedding plants in May and I am amazed at the size of the tubers. I have washed them and will dry and store.  What I want to ask is am I wasting my time as the plants flowered first time then made loads of buds which didn't open. I suspect Thrips or some virus. Will this affect the tubers and the health of the plants next year? They look marvellous so I hope not.

I doubt that it was either-this should not affect the tubers-lack of sun and warmth has been the problem this year-they are not native to this country but originate in Mexico which explains a lot

I don't think it needs sun-far from it- oop north don't they force it in shed-and then you can buy pots to go over then to get the first tender sticks

You do realise from past conversations you are in this for the long haul?
