What's the weather like in your area?

Posted: 14/12/2012 at 20:35

It's rained all day here in the NW. Been out driving in it most of the day too. Was driving south on the M6 just before mid day in heavy rain and for some reason the over head signs were warning drivers of the sever weather conditions in the NE  giving the impression...if you think it's bad on this side of the country... it's even worse on the other side

Best runner bean

I tried Painted Lady and Scarlet Empire this year, they were both good croppers and tasty. Much prefer runner and french beans to broad beans.

Seed swap

Sam. I'd be interested in all three, what would you like to swap.

I also have some tom seeds, mainly common varieties but I do have some Xmas grape which is a nice cherry one.

How do we exchange addresses!

 

 

Seed swap

I'd be interested in veg seeds.

I've a few different varieties of bean seeds spare - purple podded and yellow plus yard long red noodle, best grown in a GH.blackeyed cowpea and Hyacinth beans. 

Chilli seeds - Apache and cayenne.

I'd like some sweet pepper seeds, a variety which can be grown in a GH bed and grows fairly tall.

Gardengirl. The shed was dark brown to start with so after an undercoat painted it a very pale green. It wasn't quite what I wanted, the paint seemed to slip off the undercoat and the undercoat didn't go on very well either.

Growingspuds for Chistmas...

Posted: 11/12/2012 at 23:22

I find if growing for one or two people, growing in bags is ideal especially If you don't have an allotment or much room to grow stuff. I've found summer grown spuds a really  reliable crop too, and 1st, 2nd and main have always done well in bags. This year for instance I didn't need to buy a spud from June till November and grew five different varieties none of which could be bought locally.
