Re: Happy Birthday.

Thank you everyone for my birthday wishes. We have been away in the Cotswolds for a week to include my birthday and we had no internet access. I had a brilliant birthday at a barn conversion in the middle of no where, lots of fields. There were no houses or roads close by and we watched lots of hare...

Re: Blight??

Early or late it still looks like it has killed our plants. Do I dig them up or leave them in the ground, that is the question.

Re: Blight??

All our potatoes were really healthy and then last week it looked not so good and then very quickly bad so we have cut back everything. Glad we didn't do tomatoes

Re: Potatoes

Thanks Geoff, I now remember that they are ok. We picked some more potatoes today and we had more slug damage. We have had chocolate spot on our broad beans and the sweet peas are dreadful with no flowers. I have tried different courgettes this year and am not happy with two of the plants, can't rem...

Potatoes

I lost all the tops of my potatoes with blight last week, first early, second and main. I have chopped all the tops off the potatoes. Tonight I picked some main crop for our tea and when I peeled and cut them up I found a black beetle in a hole in the potato. Has anyone found this before?

Re: Favourite books?

I read cookery books, I know it's sad but I love looking through cookery books. I do a lot of cooking, never make puddings or sweets but I must have more than a hundred cookery books. My OH dreads me going in to Tesco because they have lots of cookery books.

Then the same day last week we got an email from a Holiday Cottage company who also advertised the cottage we had b...
