    No, Anne, but involves a lot of chopping, which is very time consuming. x

    Morning all, bit of a grey Day, but warm, have no Intention, of doing anything outside, as have chopped down as much dead Foliage as I can, allowing the Flowers that are left, a better chance. Asked second Son, if Weather permits, would he give the Garden, a final tidy up, next Weekend. Planning to pave over more next Year, and stand Pots on,…[Read more]

    • Sounds like a plan Tina :good: Pots , big ones mainly, are very popular in the Gardening programmes as they are versatile and can be moved around, both for the plants’ benefits and for visual effect. :good: HALSunday :good: :love: :rose:

    • Hello Tina:-) From your click it sounds like you’re doing well with what you’ve been growing this year really but pots are more straightforward and you can change the look of an area just by moving them around. Cherry and coconut sounds good :good:

  • Morning Clickers, lovely Morning here, better make the most of it, as think it is downhill all the way, after today. Just got one more lot of Chutney to make, then that is me finished for the Year. It has to be Green Tomato, does it not, and although I love eating it, can’t face starting on the big Bowl full that I have. Made Chilli, Garlic,…[Read more]

  • Morning all, just a wee catch up, it is a lovely Day, so want to get outside as soon as possible, not to do anything oyful, tidying up for Winter, so much to be chopped down, and Binned, we have had so much Rain this year everything is overgrown, so it will be chop, chop, chop, today. Decided to pave over the bit next to the Maple Tree, as it’s…[Read more]

    • I feel for you Tina :eyeroll: Am currently in the process of doing similar things in GG … when I can get out there that is.
      Good luck with it all :good: :rose:

  • Morning all, sunny here, but very windy, knocking all my Pots over, no point in righting them, they will ust get blown over again. Made Chutney, yesterday, and got lots more to make, but the Backbone of my Chutney, is my Apples, which because of the Weather, are late this year. Starting to get Plums, never made Plum Chutney, but think it could…[Read more]

    • Good morning Tina :high-five:
      Am well impressed with your garden, which seems to flourish despite the vagaries of the Scottish weather … bravo :good: :-)
      Have a lovely day :rose:

    Morning Clickers, what a miserable Morning it is, and last Night, was Gale force Winds, and Rain.. Got to make Rock Cakes, as promised eldest Son, his Favourite as a Boy, and he still goes daft for them. Picked the last of the Broad Beans, yesterday, these are things you cannot buy in the Shops, those , not worth eating, big leathery excuses…[Read more]

    • God morning Tina :high-five: It’s a marvel to me that you manage to grow anything with such inclement weather! It points to a doughty character on your part :good: HAGD :rose:

    • Evening Tina, I quite agree with you on the B. Beans I love them home grown but wouldn’t touch them from a shop. :bad: Hope you had a good day and enjoyed your son’s visit. :good:

    • Hello Tina :-) I’m the same about shop tomatoes! Lovely to hear from you and I hope your weather improves today :-)

  • Morning Clickers, please forgive me for not posting, but to let you understand, I have no use in my right Arm, but I do in my Hand, so have to hold my right Arm, with my left to write. Sometimes, am in too much pain to do this, my right Arm, is also beginning to suffer, because it has been doing the work of two for years. In short, I will be…[Read more]

    • I understand your pain Tina, and marvel that you can actually persevere and do so much despite it :love: :good: It’s great to hear how well the garden crops are producing for ou, despite the ravages of Scottish weather you have endured too…pretty much miraculous I’d say. HALD crafting :good: :love: :rose:

  • Morning Clickers, it is raining here, and we did need it after the few hot Days, amazing how you get used to having nice Weather, then, out of the Blue, literally, Buckets of the wet Stuff. Been very pleased with the results from the veggie Garden this Year, eating more than usual, especially Broad Beans, and my Stomach is protesting… Lost…[Read more]

  • Morning Clickers, sorry, not to have been on, but had Visitors all Week, this is peak Season, and will have more next Week, so ust trying to get my Breath back.

  • Morning all, well, the same old Weather, despite being promised ‘a good Weekend’, wonder what that is?

    Learned a very salutary Lesson, yesterday, do not send two Boys out to pick your Raspberries! I had already crossed their Palms, as had not seen them for a while, and made them specially Choc Chip…[Read more]

  • Morning all, grey and warm, here Sun trying to come through, my Friends, down South need Rain, we need Sun. My Strawberries are the worst ever, small, miss shapen, and worst of all, am sure one lot has the dreaded Vine Weevil, as the Leaves have collapsed, which is usually a very good Sign. No Cucumbers, lost loads, but the Courgettes, seem to be…[Read more]

  • Morning Clickers, it is a lovely start to the Day, but forecast not to last. Did get a good bit done yesterday, so happy about that, but desperate to get my Gooseberries picked. Unfortunately, have a Visitor late Morning, and need to bake something too, thought of making a Lemon Curd Sponge, with Buttercream.
    My Broad Beans, are nearly ready, I…[Read more]

    • Afternoon Tina :-) glad to hear you’ve had some sunshine :good: If we were near neighbours, I’d have your courgette plants like a shot as the slugs have only left me with 3 and I like to have 5 or 6!

  • Morning all, from a very windy Fife. Am desperate to get out in the Garden, but these short sharp bursts of Rain, mean am drenched before I can reach the House, and a Minute later, after removing a very wet Cardigan, the Sun is shining again. Rain was so heavy at one point, it took took newly planted Pear out, and by the time I found them, had…[Read more]
