What's the weather like in your area?

Posted: 14/03/2013 at 20:32

Wet and windy here.

I've been sowing seeds in the kitchen it's been so cold outsideA tab bit disappointed with germination. Twelve chilli Apache seeds sown and only three have come up, sadly going leggy whilst I wait for the others to show. Cayenne just two seeds showing, peppers are no better...

David......so pleased with my SP seedlings this year. Kept nipping off extra growth over Winter...grown in the GH, they have had no TLC, not been brought indoors once and nearly all the plants have at least three shoots from one seed...looking really good and healthy...I'm planting as companions along side pea's and beans but any spares will now be planted along side my climbers in a flower bed....when would you advise they can be planted out...

Brr...sounds cold...I've often read your posts and wondered which part of France you were in, just visited 'wikipedia' for Dordogne to see where you are in relation to Agde, you are up the country and to the left, me thinks. 

Been to the place where they make that really nice blue cheese, me thinks that's in your direction

What a difference in climate though from the South Coast, you don't look to be that far inland from Agde but I'm sure it's probably a few hundred miles. We travel over the Pyrenees for duty free's into Spain or Andorra and there's usually snow on the peaks there in early spring and Autumn.

Rain. I tried Verve at the start of last year and wasn't impressed either but then by chance at the end of the growing season bought a huge split bag, it was vey good quality....guess it's a lottery....

Nice and sunny here with clear blue skies.

Frank - so glad I went on the train.

Busy-Lizzie. My brother has a house in Agde. Hasn't snowed there in over 20 yrs, I'm told it seldom drops below 15C in winter. When it did last snow, it was such a novelty, everyone took pictures and a few bars have them on their walls .

His neighbour grows veg in her garden, it seems odd seeing what we would grow in a GH romping away outdoors, she grows huge toms and grapes to die for.

Another cold day. The snow from yesterday has all but gone.

Bunny/Frank. Was in Carlisle and then Stockton yesterday, decided to go on the train which was just as well, it was blizzardous in the morning in Carlisle, popped into Costa's for a coffee and the guy at the counter, told me you can get four seasons in one day.

It was certainly colder in Stockton, the snow started coming down again at about 5pm just as I was setting back off for home. 

pineberry/white strawberry?

This lady is neither growing vegetables or keeping animals. If Dovefromabove hadn't posted, my view would have been she needs to take this up with the solicitor involved with purchasing the land/property who should have advised her appropriately  as to what she could or not do on the land prior to purchase.

She may have a liable claim against the solicitor, if not given appropriate counsel and although I feel sorry for this lady sadly ignorance is not a defence in a court of law and the council will know this.

If she chose to ignore the advise given at time of purchase by her solicitor...well...  she took her chances.... and sadly has been found out...

Where are you from square foot...as you come up as Tower Hamlet on your profile which is in the eastern part of London and covers much of the traditional East End which now includes the redeveloped Docklands, Canary Wharf, many of the tallest biuldings in London, part of the Olympic Park and is not an area with many residential homes!
