If you have an interest in autism

Yep Jo.  Me too.  And why is it that everybody I meet is wrong?  I am always right so why do people argue with me so much?

Amazing.....from powerful winds and horrendous gusts it is now calm .  Some rain, some of it heavy.  "They" even forecast some sunshine before the end of the day.

no doubt the storm will return now....why did I remind Frank?

A friend of mine has aspergers......he is my computer repair man too.  Reliable, honest, personable,  really into electronics and efficient.  No airs and graces, no showing  off and no deceit.  He never infuriates me unlike most people.

looks like I passed Pansy's test, for what it's worth, but all of us have "tendencies" ......who is "normal" anyway?   


How to make Viburum "Eve Price" flower

Posted: 30/12/2015 at 07:28

It should flower if pruned in spring.  Flowers then from late winter into spring.  Hard pruning every 2 or 3 years on a bush growing well will not encourage flowering I think.

Morning folks

what a night! Horrendous gusts at times.  You think the wind is strong then another gust threatens to take the roof off.  A very unpleasant day in prospect.  A look around shows gh is  ok, polytunnel too and no damage seen.

A convoy leaving Cornwall today for the north with supplies for flood victims.  I think most of us here have contributed.  Looks like Frank is reserving the worst for the north.  

Short walk today but it was dry and those winds whipping and lashing everything are warm...

Carrots - what's the secret?!

Posted: 29/12/2015 at 21:55

Often sown carrots at the end of Feb.

my soil is warm sandy loam....perfecf for carrots.  Yep agree carrots.

I like to  try a new carrot seed to compare taste etc.  Some of the F1 hybrids are worth the extra cost however seed content is often low

This is not climate change folk.....this is WEATHER.  There are meteorlogical causes.

Winter will happen.......just a bit  later THIS year.  We will still all sow our seeds according to the season and harvest according to the season.  If this doesn't happen then we really will experience climate change.  This is why we can reliably say to Sunnygardener when he can and when he can't sow his tomato seeds

Frank is shouting louder by the hour down here.

Interesting pansy.  

I must say that "labels"  are too often used.  I remember talking to someone who had so many labels (what he is, could be etc) applied to him that they did not make sense.....often contradictory.  They certainly did not help him. people often then live up to their labels
