  • Afternoon all, a very busy few days or weeks even!! So a lazy start to the day,helped by it raining :good: a chance now to slowly catch up with the garden, friends,emails etc at a leisurely sort of pace. Lovely time with family, although young Max was a tad temperamental,due to the fact he starts school on Wednesday of next week, but it’s nothing…[Read more]

  • Afternoon all, & welcome home Jane :rose: it’s rather breezy in Norfolk with after rain overnight, the temps are much lower than of late, good for getting jobs done outside, but not so impressed with having to put socks and a lightweight jumper or cardigan on :confused: not that I’m grumbling really :blowkiss: :giggle:

    • Hello Lynn and Anne :-) it’s good to be back, even though it’s been raining today ;-) I’ve only been out in the garden as far as the lettuce to pick some for lunch. It’s the last of it – it was covered in ladybirds busily devouring whatever was on it and l’ll be pulling the remainder out tomorrow in the sunshine ;-) Have a lovely afternoon both…[Read more]

      • Good afternoon Jane :high-five:

    Hi Ruth, :good: on the gardening as a career, I enjoy doing my own thing in my garden,not sure if I could cope with doing it for a living. :rose:

  • flowerpotlynn posted a new activity comment 3 weeks, 5 days ago

    Evening Cilla, we had rain over night and until about 10.30 this morning,so hopefully this will have helped. :good:

  • flowerpotlynn posted a new activity comment 3 weeks, 6 days ago

    Brilliant Karen, hope you like potatoes :lol: I’ve dug up one plant and am pleased with the size and quantity :good: I grew Cara again this year. How many seed potatoes did you sow?

    Morning Cilla & Bean, still no runners from my plants have new flowers, but no beans, think the bees are too busy elsewhere to pollinate? I’ll give them a couple more weeks then they will have to go!! The tomatoes are ripening now, but have made a note to self not to grow,yours Bean 😂.

    • The Losetto are really impressive, Lynn – but there is a limit to the number of cherry tomatoes you need – Losetto does not accept limits, and has been producing pounds for months.

    • Hi Lynn. I did spray the runner bean flowers with water in the dry period but there is self sown borage in the veg bed so the bees are there.

  • Morning all, a drizzly/rainy start to the day, brightness forecast from 11.am!!! Glad I got the grass mown yesterday along with 2 trays of eating apples harvested, by OH mostly. Got lots of apples to juice too.
    Indoor stuff this morning as family coming from the bank holiday weekend, beds to make, menus and shopping list to write? HAGD all :rose:

    • Sounds like a purposeful and very happy day, Lynn. How do you juice the apples? What equipment do you need? Are you making cider? Sounds really interesting. Tell us about it when you are less busy, please.
