Well said busy.  I think  we are all friends here 

But we do need a new influx of quality jokes like wot mine are.  

My old dad used to say if you smile the whole world smiles.  It's then a happier place.  I'm smiling now

Morning fFORKERS

Dark morning.  Dry though.

Busy day incl another round of haggling for a car.....not sure if I really want to change. The last time I did a deal with this salesman I had him almost to tears.  Absolutely true.  Simply cos I drive a hard deal amd he didnt want to lose my custom to a rival selling same cars, peugeots.    

Breakfast for me is porridge......made with milk and very creamy and raspberries.  

Alrhough it looks likely to be dry today there won't be any gardening or even any tinkering

Hope ??ou all have a good day folks

Stacey, to force or not (rhubarb). For me no.  Unless your have plenty of it or have dug some up I would not force.  You will not be able to have rhubarb from that forced plant this year.

Having forced and grown normally, I love my rhubarb as it comes in the summer. With good feeding and plenty of watering my rhubarb is delicious......sweet, plump and perfect for raw eating or cooking.   I grow Stockbridge Arrow.  The best I think 

WHAT WEEDKILLER?

Eric using any weedkiller where bulbs are right now will damage bulb foliage now emerging.  At the best of time it will be difficult to use weedkiller indiscriminately.

I would employ a mixture of hand digging and spot spraying with glyphosate which kills down to the roots.

ERIC FREEZER wants to know what weedkiller he can use in an area where bulbs are.

 

Help please.

Eric, yes obelixx is right but be careful with any weedkiller there.  You can't use now with bulb foliage appearing.  Tell you what, I'll start a thread called WHAT WEEDKILLER?   to try and get answer for you, ok?

Evening folks

The rain is causing more problems down here.......road closed for subsidence (mine shaft), a house partly fallen into another shaft, hole suddenly appeared on Towans, and subsidence problems in another village.  Sheer volume of water and saturated ground 

Friday is forecast to be very wet and stormy.  Must be a nightmare for those living in flood prone areas.
