    evening all – grey and damp day here today, started to strim paths on allotment this morning but battery ran out of power so home again to recharge strimmer so didn’t get finished until this afternoon, wish everyone else would cut their paths after the rain we’ve had the grass has got away on itself – OH used to mow all the paths for everyone but…[Read more]

    • Good evening Jenny. Was going to clear some ground today, but it’s rained nearly all day so I did damn all. Wasn’t a bad day, but I really hope it has dried up by tomorrow, so that I can be a bit more productive. It’s a shame everybody won’t keep up their own grass trimming – it must make quite a difference to the look of the site.

    well, it has been a very cool, cloudy day with a little bit of rain – drizzle really, when driving over the top of the fells, made quite a nice change – never thought I would say that in summer – ha ha

    • Did you enjoy your picnic Jenny?
      HANE :rose:

    • It was plus32 here in the south today and I played golf this morning. We managed to get finished by 1:30 which was not to bad and I managed to beat the hubby again …..hahsa

      • Phew Vashte! rather you than me out in the sun golfing! Brave or barmy woman …. :lol: but well done :good: :rose:

    • Know exactly what you mean Jenny – I feel really glad not to live in the south of England at the moment. Coolness is an under-rated state…..

    learnt on Gardeners World years ago – from Carol Klien – plant carrot seeds after cow parsley has flowered and is going over as the carrot fly is not as active then, although they do have a second crack at it but not as bad – you obviously timed it just right – well done

  • Yewbarrow posted an update 1 week, 6 days ago

    morning all, bit grey again today but supposed to fine up. Off on a jolly today, a ride over into the Dales to Buckden, picnic and a day off chores – enjoy your day each

    good day folks, lot warmer today sun shining and clouds here and there – think I’ll have a bit of time on the allotment and do a bit of weeding this afternoon – bit of therapy I always say it is – enjoy your weekend folks

    • Hi Jenny … enjoy, and good luck on the lottie :good: :rose:

    • Flowers have taken over my garden,It’s going to be different next year, It’s like a jungle. Veg is on the way back,

      • I think that your flowers are lovely Allan … they sure have got their own back this year :lol: I am warned as when I eventually get the new sunny bed made I intend to mix crops and flowers :confused: I wonder if it will work :lol: :rose:

          Just had my broad bean seeds off flebay. :rose:

          • :lol: Now, being an ignoramus on crop growing Allan….this strikes me as either early or late to be buying seeds!! When do you plant broad beans , and when will they be ready to crop?

            • Allan replied 2 weeks ago

              Il plant them in March in the conservatory Anne, The bean seeds were packed in 2018 and are labelled,Plant by 2020,They have a good shelf life. :rose:

            • Ah thank you Allan :love: :rose:

    greetings from a very wet south lakes – hosepipe ban cancelled, not that we will need to water for a few days anyway – hope you are all coping if where it is hottest and enjoying the rain where it is raining, will have to find some housework to do this afternoon, shame but eventually one has to – enjoy your day and weekend folks

    slow start today, OH has gone to daughters to take grand daughter to counselling session so am beng a bit lazy, will get a move on shortly and do something useful – enjoy your day folks, bit cloudy and sunny here with a stiffish breeze which keeps it a bit cooler than it could be – have fun

    is that with a rope – phew – my skipping days are over

  • Yewbarrow posted a new activity comment 2 weeks, 5 days ago

    son gave me two plants called redcurrant toms – they are the size of red currants and so far the birds have had more than we have, ha ha, you would need a bowl full to get any good tom taste – never mind a bit of fun

    • 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

  • Yewbarrow posted an update 2 weeks, 5 days ago

    good day folks, bit cloudy here now after sunny start, harvested veg, the courgette I thought a couple of days ago would be ok for a couple of days before picking is now a marrow, apart from runner beans which really need a good water everything looks a bit happier after the “wrong type of rain” as United Utilities is calling the stuff we have had…[Read more]

    well I wish they would mizzle well stop it ha ha – we look out over Morecambe Bay, if Heysham Power Station looks as if you could easily walk across the bay to it – it is going to rain – if you can’t see it at all it is raining – how simple is that – no amber warnings
