Deano, good looking veg.  Clearly a keen grower?  it's been an excellent year for veg I think

Today the last to flower dahlia has shown its flower.  And what a beauty!  Got it last year from the national dahlia collection that's based locally. Lost the label ...not like me....but it's a simple creamy yellow tucked in alongside a tall blue agastache (summer sky)

Fairy, Are you saying I pinched that joke.......I resemble that remark!  

Cracked a few jokes at the foodbank today and they were so funny.  I laughed at every one.   Oh, and we had doughnuts there again but we now have a greedy volunteer who ate his so I only had is a very selfish world!

Agreed.  And those broccoli have time still to grow again but give a good feed

Hiya folks.  Where's Verdun?  .

It's been a glorious day today. Pleasantly hot.  Fragrance of jasmine, honeysuckle, lilies and heliotrope.....oh, and curry plants.....wafting around the garden.  Loads of bees and cabbage white butterflies but only a very few other butterflies

Foodbank again today......not fond of being indoors when it's so nice

Morning forkers

Sunny and very warm

Expecting couple agastaches this morning.....will grow for next year.

Serious accident locally on a road I'll be on soon.  Another reminder to take care I guess

Hiya red dahlia

Very impressive.  No, you won't regret sowing those seeds.  I wouldn't sow anything else now though....just concentrate on those you already have.  They are all fairly hardy, ESP in the greenhouse over winter. Are they big enough to,prick out out yet?  If so maybe into 9cm pots.....and to keep in the greenhouse over winter.  

I love verbena Rigida....I grow it and it's the most fantastic purple plant flowering all summer.  But they are all good perennials.

Fairygirl.....hee hee hee, snigger, snigger.  

Seriously the forum is only about solving problems and not about who may or may not be right.  ( truth be told I've learned an awful lot about tomatoes this year from the forum and picked up some other ideas too....always learning.  I try to read everybody's post with this in mind)
