Re: How Many of You Bring Half Your Garden Inside Over Winter?

My house tends to be full of plants - mostly seedlings - in spring and early summer.

Re: What are you growing right now?

Onions, onions, onions... Well, they are not growing any more, but they haven't been harvested yet. Courgette and patty pan are still going - I have a few runner beans that are not looking too happy with the weather... Shame. Radishes. Brambles. In a fit of optimism I've sown a few seeds under cover...

Re: New Person Saying Hello

Hi Ascerti - welcome to Ish. Dreaming is a good place to start - and it doesn't end; I'm rather older than you and still dreaming. Is there maybe a way you could start coming closer to your dreams in a very little way - I'm thinking of container gardening or such like? That was always my minimum if ...

Also of note, I finally have a pineapple with roots.
That's something I did on purpose, and have tried before and failed.
Congratulations! I've tried that a couple of times, without success.

Re: Honebody day

Yeah, birds got most of my (very few) cherries, too. But I left the red currant uncovered this year for the birds - I can't use them all anyway.

Re: How to grow an Avocado tree

I've had a few on the compost heap, too! But then, lacking a poly tunnel (or sufficient sunshine), it never came to much.

Re: Growing in 2018 weather

I'm not keen on tomatoes, but I could just do with a glut of plums... Or at least a few for daily eating!

What the cows, sheep and goats???? :mrgreen:
Er, no - not them, either. :oops:

I remember when I was in France, we gave huge ex-courgettes to our house cow - she loved them. Was really uplifting to see her take big chunks out of them.

Re: The effect of having to lose weight

Gosh these people who are good with a needle! Ina I'm of the class who can sew on a button and mend a worn out pocket but not a lot more than that. Never really learned any sewing skills and the husband that was used to be good with the sewing stuff so never any need. I'm not saying it looked terri...

Cows, sheep and goats love them, too - and you don't need to cook them!

Re: The effect of having to lose weight

Over the decades, I never threw out what became too small... So I still have a wardrobe full of stuff that'll do me if I ever lose as much as I should! Some trousers can quite easily be taken down a size or two - used to do that when I was younger and losing weight was much easier.
