Re: Best place to grow tomatoes

France - Italy - even Spain - what's the difference... ;)

Re: Need a change of lifestyle

But if there were to be serious mutterings about sending the foreigners back home we would certainly apply for Irish citizenship, I'm definitely not moving back to Blighty. I think I'm more likely to be chucked out of the UK - after all, I can't even get permanent residency here after 20 years in S...

Re: Someone say something

Australians do it in Australia too . I think another fact they'd not considered may be that in large parts of our beautiful country there's very unreliable mobile and internet connection! Now I've not heard from them for a few days, and I've suggested a breakfast meeting in Edinburgh on Saturday......

Raining all day. Typical - there's an aurora alert today. Been in Scotland for 20 years and never managed to see the aurora!

Re: 101 ways to improve my memory - PLEASE

Maggie - I have the same suspicions about the low fat diets contributing to dementia in a big way. Remember that really old woman who was on the news not long ago whose diet seemed to consist mainly of eggs? Chock full of cholesterol - seemed to do her no harm.

The wind has brought my greenhouse down, so that's what I should be doing today. It's still quite windy, though - and I've just not got the up-and-go... :( All my little plants will be squashed, anyway. Oh, no, Ina! That is a nasty setback. Will it be a big job to rebuild it? Do you have plants in ...

Re: Funny old weather

Well done on your new greenhouse Ina, I predict you will wonder how you managed without it soon. Don't forget to water it though :iconbiggrin: Sorry to hear about your loss of water - I would be , er, rather annoyed, too, to put it politely... It's only a 2x2m tomato house, I think they call it. So...

Re: Funny old weather

Not complaining about lack of rain (yet) - but the heat! Above 25 degree C - that's just not natural... Not for us, anyway, you Southeners. :lol: I managed to get my inherited mini greenhouse up yesterday with the help of a friend (oh what fun, when you have no idea what it is supposed to look like ...

Re: Funny old weather

I wouldn't mind a bit of that rain - none forecast for us here in the east, and I can't keep up with watering!
