MORNING FORKERS

Posted: 11/05/2013 at 13:09

I'm not fat, I've just got big bones!

Have just checked my carrot tapes, nothing there after 3 weeks, so planted another row, here's hoping. Also a row of parsnips. Last year I overplanted them with lettuce as after a month nothing had happened. I ended up with 4 parsnips growing in between the lettuce. Didn't know then that they take ages to germinate. Patience is a virtue!

My trick is to leave a tissue in a pocket, even after checking.

A favourite here, especially in a black load, grrrrr!

Morning all, I see there are 7 kitchen spams on "New discussions" again this morning! They certainly are persistent!

Super, Welshonion. Next door neighbour has 4 swift nesting boxes under the eaves, just saw the first ones arrive today too! They come every year almost on the same date.

Hey, thanks Daniel, now that I think about it, could have just tried it out and see what happens!

I've been on this site for quite a while now, but I've wondered that myself, I'm glad you asked, maybe someone can explain!

I put tagetes between my tomatoes, not sure if they do anything though, toms seem to be the same with  or without.

Good morning all, bloody spam, don't give up Andy, we'll miss you!

Am in limbo at the moment, everything I can plant out is done and all the rest are waiting to grow big enough or it's not warm enough to plant them out. So, just pottering around killing weeds and watching things grow.

Which bamboo?

Hi there, this site might help with information, look for non-invasive types, the others will spread everywhere and you'll have a heck of a job to get rid of them (I speak from experience!)
