Re: Forum moving-sorry for any hiccups

Aha I had wondered why 'view new posts' and 'active posts' were not working the last few times I've looked in. Good luck with the forum moving!

Re: Blackcurrant pruning

You are mad!

I agree about the bugs - it's been fantastic. Just seen a spider kill a Large White though and that one I was not going to save! :lol:

Must go get me specs on and go egg squidging again..... :roll:

Re: Blackcurrant pruning

Cripes Boboff, I get 8kg easily from just 2 bushes!!

This year I left most of the black and redcurrants on the bushes and they are still there. No birds seem to like them. :(

Re: Blackcurrant pruning

Oh and they are still both covered in fruit because I only picked a small amount and no birds are interested in either red or black currants, which means a thousand young plants to weed out next year. :roll:

Re: Blackcurrant pruning

I prune every year to make more space because even though my two redcurrants and two blackcurrants are spaced out more than 'the book' says, they still grow into each other. I prune during the dormant season according to my RHS book and not now like Monty Don does. However they never grow like 'the ...

Re: Bird song

My blackbirds sing "where's Jeremy?", my Blackcaps end their song with "ticketyboo" and the Chaffies here end their song with "sekeee-ah" whereas some, particularly in England, sing "boudeee-ah". Which could almost be translated into "gonna eat ya". :iconbiggrin: Shame that R4 tweet is on rather ear...

Re: Bonjour from France

Hi Caroline - all well here and trying to get the garden ready in between the rain! So funny you are complaining about the red tape - mind you, so do all the French people I know. But we just get used to it after a while - it is no good trying to battle the system. :iconbiggrin: Hi again David - wel...

Re: Feeling un loved :[

You will see it if you 'View New Posts' rather than 'Active Topics'.

There was always a glitch in the system where the foraging section didn't show up in Active Topics, so I guess it has never been fixed. :iconbiggrin:

Re: I'm Back - long self indulgent rant alert

I'm glad everything worked out for you in the end, Bonnie. I wondered what happened with the floristry business.

So pleased that your Ishness has come back and an allotment sounds like a perfect compromise. Good luck with it! :flower:
