Re: Happy Birthday.

Please can I say thank you for your birthday wishes. It was greatly appreciated. I have a problem with my computer. I have a very old computer which collects my emails. I have a new (a bit newer than the old laptop but not much) laptop which I can't, for some reason, sort my emails out to collect. I...

Re: New Book

The book's arrived and it looks very interesting. So I am sitting in the garden with a nice glass of white wine and soda and perusing it. Also bought Jamie's Veg cookery book so going through that also. I have a very bad habit of buying cookery books I just love reading them. I probably need to go a...

Re: New Book

I have just ordered it as I saw it in a book shop and thought it had some very good ideas. I am trying to make our allotment work harder for us. We've been growing stuff for 18 years but still like finding new information or ideas.

Re: Pea and Bean weevil?

Thank you for your suggestion, we have sprayed with Bug clear gun for fruit and veg and they have sprung into life. We hate using sprays but this was definately a last resort. They seem to be picking up.

Pea and Bean weevil?

This year we have been hammered by something eating all round the edges of the peas and broad beans.(Looking it up we think it is the pea and bean weevil) We have had this before but never as bad as this year. We are organic and have been for 18 years but are now considering using a spray as our pea...

Re: Allotment garden shed and an accident

Thanks Westie, of course I will never let him forget it! but he also regrets what he did immensely. It is now giving him problems doing his job as he is self employed. I wish this weather would settle down as we cant do the roof till it is less windy and dry.

Re: Allotment garden shed and an accident

Stephen, he fell on to flags! I think most people would hurt themselves falling over 6 feet onto flags. Primrose he certainly has learned his lesson the hard way. He thought he was helping me to be able to get on with my seed sowing!

Re: Allotment garden shed and an accident

Robo I know, but some people think they know better, my OH wanted me to get on with my sowing of seeds so wouldn't accept my help and this is the outcome. He is very upset at what has happened, particularly as it has hit his business as he works for himself!!

Allotment garden shed and an accident

In January we lost our felt off the allotment garden shed. My OH sheeted it and was waiting for a good day to cover it in new felt. Five weeks ago my OH decided to go and roof it, I offered to hold the ladder but "no I wasn't needed" a short time later he fell of the roof. Frightened the l...
