Re: Someone say something

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!

Re: First home grown lunch of the year

Sounds lovely... :) I've been having purple sprouting broccoli for longer than I enjoy now, and that's what I'll have today, again. Must be coming to an end soon! And I still have beetroot leaf, in my salads as well as cooked, from last year's beetroot. And my now three year old rocket, chives and y...

Re: Brits banned from overseas hotels...

Well, it is true that the Brits have a much stronger blame and claim culture (inherited from the USA, of course) than the rest of the world seems to have. Never understood that. For my part, I would advise any foreigner not to come for a holiday in Britain - not until they've sorted out their bloody...
