Re: Strawberry advice please

Thanks Digger but I am still baffled. The plants are all located in the same place in similar pots so I would rule out disease or non pollination (the bees are busy in my garden :icon_smile: )
Seaside girl - Yes I shall keep tabs on which fruit and which don't.

No dogs here. No flowers on the non-fruiting plants either.

Strawberry advice please

I have strawberry plants growing. Some are fruiting, some are not. The original plants came from two different places but I don't know which plants are which. I did snip the runners off the plants a while ago as they appeared but this doesn't seem to have had any bearing on whether they have fruited...

Re: Solstice Blessings

No one complained and I don't think there was a wicker man (at least not whilst I was there). The fire is a yearly event. It's not a state school so I guess if you don't like it you don't send your kids there.

Re: Solstice Blessings

Happy Solstice to you too. My youngest son went to Kindergarten today (he doesn't usually do Fridays) and saw the big school children light a fire in the middle of the school field amidst much drumming and singing. Later when the littlest children has gone back to their kindergartens and the fire ha...

Re: hello again

Hello Leanne

It is scary how time flies without you noticing it. I am a newbie compared to you - only about 3 years on here but not a prolific poster. My ish needs polishing I think but my procrastionation is thriving! I love to see and hear what others get up to to inspire me.

Re: Beetroot cake recipe?

Made the beetroot cake yesterday - in fact I made two as I have two 1lb loaf tins but not a 2lb one. Son2 refused to try it (what a shame :lol: ). Beetroot hating son3 and teenage guest (vegetable hater) managed two slices each. I have the second cake left which will be todays pudding. The recipe is...

Re: 33p-50p per person Meals

It is certainly an interesting piece of work but I don't fancy the meal plans myself. One thing it doesn't take into account is bargains. I love a bargain and stock my freezer when I see them. Recently got 3lb of turkey breast mince for 30p. That would certainly go a long way for one person.

Re: Calender Girls WI Calander for 2014

I have knitted a bag with strips of old clothes. My niece suggested adding old cassette tape to add 'sparkle' to the knit or you could knit/crochet completely with cassette tape. I have also seen a top made entirely of ring pulls - think chain mail. I am sure with some time and imagination you could...

Re: Spraying cat

Could another cat have got in the house? I had an intruder through the cat flap and my tomcat was not impressed. My stair carpet did not smell good at all after he flew down the stairs in pursuit.
