Yeys!  How do you get on with the electronic version Pat? I think I'd miss my bit of paper.  Can you get the paper version over there?

Morning all!  Jo, that sounds something like a sitcom that you'd think wouldn't happen in the real life! Hope leg feeling ok. I had a nervousness of dogs as a toddler that my parents couldn't understand where it came from.  As a teenager I overrode the nervous feeling with common sense but then got bitten twice.  I think dogs know!  I class myself a cat lover...At least I did until one started pooing out front but I won't start that discussion again....

Hosta, I think some people use religion as an excuse to behave in a nasty way.  which is bonkers as the true message of most religions is the opposite; typical humans have twisted it.  Just remember that "normal" people do not behave like that.  It's them that have the problem not you. Difficult though with a split family,  I grew up in a family where one half wouldn't talk to us, and we didn't even know why. I made my own family out of close friends and neighbours.  Had a pseudo gran and pseudo aunt and uncle. Perhaps your OH should choose his own sibling?

Oh Ken, you've got yourself into the naughty corner with this lot!  It's one of the gardening learning curves that there are good insects and bad insects.  I tend not to get rid of the bad insects because there'll be a good insect /bird along eventually to do the job for me.  And if you get rid of the baddies there'll be no goodies (as there's nothg to eat) in your garden and so when you get an infestation you are stuffed.  That, and it suits my lazy streak!

Figs galore

Because there's lots of competition for the South facing garage wall slot!  Wanting mini kiwis and japanese wineberries on that. Then there the blackberries on side of garage, apricot on back of house, plus, raspberries, gooseberries, blueberries, strawberries,rhubarb, blackcurrants....think I'll be busy....

Would I need to fleece a fig in the ground?

Older Snoodlet commented on the "pet" on the patio. seems to be settling in well

I'm trying to figure out what fruit I'll be wanting to grow and where.  It'll be years tIl I do it all but will mean I can get one of two things in without having to rearrange everything in the future. Fig is on the list.  Perhaps a pot next to house south side. Or I could do in ground at back of garage. Ho hum.
