    Seeing relatives in B’ham on Sunday, we were going to go to Bridgenorth & Ludlow to see others but there have been a few admitted to hospital over the last couple of weeks (1 broken hip, and another with spinal issues) so we will delay until New Year, yes we will go to the beach again on Boxing day and watch the charity swimmers who are a brave…[Read more]

    Evening Cilla :rose: I think it was the extra thick cream that did it :devil:
    The greenhouse is usually OK, but the rain was so heavy I couldn’t bring myself to even venture out :pissing-down:
    Do you have any plans for the :haveyoubeengood?: period?

    • Xmas day will be like any other. OH’s daughter, s-i-law and grandsons coming Boxing Day. OH going to London with his daughter on the wednesday to see Phantom Of the Opera. Are you having a picnic on the beach or seeing relatives?

    Evening all :-) One mince pie too many this evening so I am feeling a little green around the gills, serves me right ;-)
    Still darn cod here, but its due to warm up at the weekend. Shame I have to spend it back in the midlands doing the present delivery run but I am sure there will be some time early next week to do a little tweeking and…[Read more]

    Evening Dix :-) I think I have had every pest and plague under the sun this year despite taking all the necessary precautions, but I will try again with a better action plan ;-)

    • Thing is not to get disheartened, I always seem to get a failure with some things no matter what. :dunno:

    Evening all, a bitterly cold wind today.Shopping day so no playing in the greenhouse or garden which to be honest was probably not such a bad thing. All presents wrapped, cards posted, and now sat in front of a roaring fire trying to defrost. I will be doing some serious thinking over the festive period on how to do better on the veg patch as this…[Read more]

    Oh Sue what a shame, I feel for you as it must have been a very difficult decision to make. As Sheila has said whoever takes over your plot will be a very lucky person indeed. Sorry I have not been on much lately but I will do better honest ;-) Hope to catch up with you soon xxx

    • To be honest Ali, it was quite a easy decision..That’s how I know it must be right, but I did think for a couple of months, just to be sure, and if I want one again, I can put my name down :good: …Hope to catch up soon yes xxx

    Evening all, torrential rain & high winds last night until approx 5am, then it started snowing and it hasn’t stopped since but because its been so wet all we have is less than a 1 cm of it on the ground. Looks like we have been very lucky as about 10 miles away they have had a good dumping of the white stuff

    • Think you have indeed been lucky, Ali. We still have the stuff lying that fell several days ago because of unremitting hard frost – but the roads are clear.

    • Hello Ali :-) amazing that you missed the staying stuff – hope you don’t have any snow today :-)

    • Hi Ali…Hope your both well and keeping warm…bet your garden is coming along heaps and bounds. I am giving up my lottie at the end of the year and will do more with my home garden..I really have neglected it this year..xxxx

      • Can only say that whoever falls heir to your plot, Sue is a very lucky grower indeed – and I hope they will honour it’s quality by keeping it that way.

        • No doubt they will use all the products I have avoided Bean…Not many plotters are organic, but I hope they enjoy it as much as I did :good:

    Hi Jane, it has snowed all day but not settled as it rained very heavily during the night

  • AliCat posted a new activity comment 1 week ago

    I will look out for your post Allan :good: I may need to take you up on the offer of bean seeds as mine have developed a rather nasty looking mildew look, don’t think they are going t make it :waiting:

  • AliCat posted a new activity comment 1 week, 1 day ago

    Evening Allan, I don’t normally keep them that way but wanted extra blackcurrant plants so took cuttings and the strawberry bed needed to be renewed, Oh well hopefully I will still have strawberries next year ;-)

  • AliCat posted a new activity comment 1 week, 1 day ago

    It’s worth a try Lynn, yes it seems they are becoming more and more of a nuisance, no matter how vigilant I am they always seem to sneak in one way or another. We don’t appear to be getting snow but are on the edge of the areas forecast to get a light dusting so we will see. Keep warm Lynn :-)

    • They seem to like my begonia tubers!!!! I keep the tubers away from my dahlia tubers!! Enjoy your evening Ali :rose:

      • Hi Ali ,They only breed in pots and troughs,That’s why I have planted all my strawberries and begonias in the gardenand only keep annual plants in pots.

    Evening all, another cold day for us all brrrr. Spent the day in the greenhouse removing all the soil from my strawberry plants and the blackcurrant plants I propagated from cuttings this year as they were full of vine weevil grubs :-( . I can only keep my fingers crossed and hope that they survive the rather brutal but necessary removal of all…[Read more]

    • Oh dear Ali, they are a real pest aren’t they. I’m sure as the plants are dormant, they should stand a good chance, perhaps water them with warm water? Good luck. It’s cold here -2 at the moment, snow forecast!!??

    Evening all,I hope you are all safe and well. The fire is stoked up and on full roar as its bitterly cold but no snow so something to be thankful for.

    • G’day Alicat – long time no see, and very pleased to see you popping on again. Looks like you might be getting some snow to go with that roaring fire this weekend. Keep snug.

      • Evening Bean, I don’t tend to get time to log on during the day when everyone else is about so I miss most people but I do still look at the site each day to see what everyone is up to :good:

    • Morning Ali :-) good to see you and take care – likely to snow right across the country to as far as the East Midlands tomorrow!

      • Morning Ali, where have you ben hiding? Lucky you if you mis the snow, looks like we have it tomorrow :-(
