    Morning all, miserable here, light Rain, and Grey, very Grey. Have my Tuesday Friend coming, so am making a Crustless Quiche for Lunch, as have a load of Eggs, so also going to boil some, and do a Jar of pickled Eggs, as have Vinegar mix left over from the Bread and Butter Pickle, that I made yesterday. My Visitor, yesterday, was presented with…[Read more]

    Morning all, Grey but very close, however, not much to do Outside this Time of Year, except dead Head, and watch out for Beasties of various kinds. Ian, cleared my small Pond yesterday, really went down on Hands and Knees, I was sitting watching him, nothing new there then ! when this strange Beastie, about double the size of a Thumbnail, came up…[Read more]

    • Hope yo are enjoying being in the pickle Tina :-) HALD :rose:

    • You put me to shame, Tina. I can feel my motivation draining away, and I don’t like it. Going to give marrows, beans and turnips to Centrestage who provide community meals from a bus .

  • Morning all, like you Sheila, we are in the Grey here, pretty warm, but with an East Coast Breeze. Advice, please,? was very disappointed with the Contents of my Potato Growbags, only looked about three Pound, just a guess, too mucky and heavy to weigh. but about a third of them had Potato Scab, horrible looking. What causes this, as have…[Read more]

    Keep reminding myself that the Farmers need the Rain, and we are lucky to have it, but the damp warmth is not good for Arthritas, , that’s Life, you’ve got to do what you can. :lol:

  • Morning all, very close here, and Sky looking ominous. But keep reminding myself the Farmers need it, but would like a wee break to do a bit of weeding, as they grow faster than Flowers, and it is annoying me no end. Also, I an was coming up to cut the Grass for me, no point if it rains. Daughter says the ‘Boys’, Father and Son, are coming…[Read more]

  • Morning all, bit Grey here, not sure what the Weather is going to be, but will not be Outside, except to water the Tubs, especially the ones with Cucumbers, and Tomatoes in. Please excuse any Mistakes that I make, these darned Cateracts are a Problem. Got to get B-m into Gear, as am making mixed Fruit Jam this Morning, lots of bits and pieces in…[Read more]

    I have three Garden Chairs strategically placed Anne, sit in one to water Apples, and Plums, on to next Chair to water Potatoes, and Courgettes, then on to next, for Peas, Beans, and Strawberries, but have to stand to water Flowers in Tubs up the Ramp, not easy, having to hang on to Walker with one Hand, and from that position, also water my…[Read more]

    Anything is worth a try, Bean, don’t know anything about Food Banks, when I could still Walk, they were not set up, but could they not be kept separate? Anyway, you, will know if it is at all possible. x

    Morning all, a lovely Morning here, a bit windy, but that’s par for the Course, here an the east Coast. Once Carer has put my Socks and Shoes on, will hie me to the Bottom of the Garden, where all the Work gets done. Sprayed my affected Roses with ‘Roseclear’, as could not find anything specific when I looked it up, for treating Rose Sawfly. Got…[Read more]

    Could you take some Tomatoes to the Food Bank, Sheila, or is that not allowed,

    • Have given them runner beans and courgettes Tina – but the Team Leader is concerned that tomatoes might get squashed on top of the stacking baskets we put the food in.

    That’s good, Anne, watering was becoming a Chore for me, too.

    • I’ll bet it was Tina … mind you I have but two little gardens to water now as my friend is back from her trip.
      HALD xx :rose:

      • Hope you had a relaxing day then gertie. :walt: :rose: but I doubt it. :-)

        • :lol: How well you are beginning to twig me Dixon :lol:

    Thanks Karen, will look it up.

  • It does not look as bad as that, Walt, no small Holes, just a few bigger Ones, but am going to give it a Dose of Roseclear. Many Thanks, anyway. Am really going to take the Time to investigate it today.

  • Some of my Roses are spoiled by Holes in the Leaves, they are none of them on the outside Edge but in the middle, some are round, about the size of a Pea, but not all. My Garden has been full of Cabbage Whites, never seen so many, nothing else for them to munch, could it be them.?

  • Morning all, not warm here, there has been a strong cold Wind from the Sea, that has taken the Temperature right down, and was blowing a Gale yesterday Evening, luckily, my able bodied Friend turned up, and tied up my Tomatoes, putting in more Stakes as well, even then, was not sure if they would withstand the Wind, as am at the Top of a Hill, and…[Read more]

    • You sound well prepared and sorted Tina, so I hope that the day goes according to plan [ mine often don’t :confused: :lol: ]
      My Potted tree on the balcony was blown over in the wind last night. I found it , luckily caught by the railing, this morning at 05.00. and righted it, just as rain was starting again :-)
      TTFN xx

  • Really cold Wind here, have had to tie up the Tomatoes, there’s always something. Forgot to say it is gusting, too.

    Loads of them, so will be pickling soon. Been given loads of Eggs, so they are next on the pickling Menu.

  • Belated Greeting, Clickers, been raining sporadically, but is dry now. Did rain overnight though, for which am truly grateful, as it is cooler, but not cool, however the ceaseless Noise of the Fan has stopped for the Time being, and that is a plus. Had my first Outside Tomato, for Lunch, it was a lovely Flavour, ‘Crimson Crush’, bought it because…[Read more]
