Girl Power!

Take a look at the centre pages of the Daily Telegrah today (Friday 27 January 2006). There's a great big article on the number of women taking on the male dominated world of allotments. Hasn't happened round my way it has to be said, we're very much in the minority but have been made nothing but we...

I've tried persuading my partner that gardening is good but to no avail. He did help with a half hour's digging 3 years ago but since then just a photo of a spade is enough to give him lower back pain. Any of his trips to the plot involve a garden chair and the newspaper! He's very horticulturally c...

No problem!

No, there's not a problem. I had the same thing happen to me and emailed Leigh to ask what was happening. It seems that when you "send" a PM, it stays in your Outbox until it is collected by the recipient. It's not like email which just goes and you don't know if its arrived. If someone's ...

Hmmm. I can see what you mean but if the zodiac signs follow the moon, you'd still be planting by the moon. I admit that the plant only during certain signs is difficult to swallow but hey, I have every intention of giving it a go because I can't mock what I've never tried. I admit I'm sceptical but...

Jars

Hi Grock I've just ordered some jars from Lakeland which are very reasonable 12 x 8ox are £4.50 and 12 x 1lb are £4.95. I'm against buying stuff when I can recycle but I simply don't have enough jars to get properly started. Anything I give away will have a proviso that the jars come back! Chantal :D

I've seen them move and I thought it was my eyesight too or I need to take more water with it. I'm so glad it's not just me... :wink:

Just noticed, the pen beside Planting by the Moon is on the move as I write! :!:

I'm with you on that one Lizzie. This new forum is fantastic and so much improved on the old one. No disrespect, the old one did it's job but times have changed. I particularly like being able to PM people and subsequently meet, exchange addresses/phone numbers etc with no fear of all and sundry pic...

So is your project now VERY late? I filled in your questionnaire on 13 January when you only had a couple of days to go and that was 12 days ago. Have you still not finished it?

Thanks Val

Having met Piglet the thought of him in the frost hugging a plum tree is something to be treasured. :shock: :D

We've already been through this a few weeks ago (13 January). There was a right furore over just about every aspect of being a student. What's more, this is exactly the same message and survey from the same student. (See Cooking Tips). I answered the survey first time around but I suspect the projec...
