Nut - sorry to hear of your aches.  Perhaps Dove can come and give you a hand in 50 days time!

Hello - anyone else out there get that Sunday evening feeling when you know it'll be a whole working week before you can spend a full morning or afternoon pottering about in the garden?  Humphhh indeed...

Poppy Fields

Hello - have driven past some stunning red fields full of poppies recently and was wondering, are these planted for a particular purpose, or are they self seeded?  Absolutely beautiful to look at and was curious as to how / why they are there.  Anyone know?

Ooh Fidget - is that Derek Tangy land that you're in.  I adore his books.

My mum and dad call me Tootles and have done since I was a baby, despite christening me Ruth!  I'm 37 now and they still call Tootles.  My better half calls me T-Bone.  I have no idea why!

Basic question alert - green beans!

Thanks GllyL and Busy-Lizzie.  I'll relegate them to the outdoors.  Pity it's not a little warmer here in the East Midlands as I think they have got quite used to a cosy greenhouse! 

I love the idea of being good enough at growing veg to be able to give it away.
