    Morning clickers. It may well be the last day of summer (25°forecast) as rain and cooler temperatures are heading our way. Sort of sad but I do like autumn and all it brings. May nip over the plot for an hour to continue the tidying. I had wanted to go earlier but was waiting on a delivery. We bought a new bed so I have another room to…[Read more]

    • Morning Jenn. You must enjoy painting. OH has been painting everything in sight here….I keep out of the way :lol:
      • Morning Jenn :-) I hate having to buy a mattress – a lot of money and you just never know soon enough whether it’s good for your back or not! Fingers crossed for you! :-)

        Hi Lynn. We have no waiting list and that is one of the problems of running the site (just one of the many since the landowners son built a Macmansion overlooking the…

          • That’s sad Jenn … doesn’t sound like the usual happy, relaxed space it should be?
            I wish I had more space for proper composting so how you can have too many bins?? :confused: Bravo to your Head honcho for sticking it out as long as he has and good luck whatever you decide :good: :rose:

                Hi cills. You may be right about giving it another season. I have until April to decide. I will continue to tidy it and look after it until I come to a firm decision. My Charlotte’s coped better with the grass clippings than my Roosters for some reason. Who knows? :lol:

                  Ahhh, thanks a million for the info Karen. I will have a think re the dormancy. Maybe it will have to go outdoors but with protection like you advised. All the peaches coming at once isn’t a problem as I use loads for jam if I can get there before Finn eats them :-) Thanks again x

                      Afternoon Anne – just to confuse matters even more, my Roosters were destined to be roasters :lol:
                        • Morning Jenn. Funnily enough I did mulch my Charlottes with grass clippings and they were fine. Did you put yours on very dry soil ? A big decision with your lottie, perhaps give it another season especially with your friends back there :-)

                              • Morning Jenn, you can get a self pollinating, dwarf variety, that would be fine for indoors as long as they are somewhere that gets a minimum of 4 hours of sunlight,…

                                      Afternoon clickers. Sorry to be awol at the minute – getting back into a routine is tiring out my brain cells and I am not getting around to doing all the things I should be doing :excruciating: I have started clearing my plot in anticipation of handing it back BUT do I really want to :excruciating: :excruciating: :excruciating: I can’t…[Read more]

I even wondered for a moment if you meant roasters!! derrr! Fat lot i know!! :bad: Sounds as though you might regret losing your plot. Good luck :good: :rose: :rose:

I may come back and potter around the garden if it’s not too warm. I have started my autumn tidy up. My tomatoes succumbed to blight last week so I…[Read more]

Back from school and I am delighted to say that Finn passed all the necessaries and is starting 6th form in September :-) His grades are in line with his mocks (which he didn’t really try too hard with because “they’re only mocks” :eyeroll: ) which means that they maybe a bit lower than if he had taken the exam but the important…[Read more]
