Dave that sounds like global warming to me  :lolb:

"Global Warming"..........what a terrible name for the phenomena that we have going on right now! I bet the scientific community regrets that one.

Since the topic of "Global Warming" came up and a friend sent this to me this evening, I just couldn't resist posting it. I hope it's not too over the top! I thought it was cute, but I'm not sure quite yet, just what is appropriate for "Chatterbox".
 
Anyway, look what happens when we cut down too many trees. Global warming is one thing, but check out the site below to see what is happening if we continue to clear our forests! We have to stop cutting down trees!  This is getting really serious!

Our garden does not lend itself to food production, mainly due to walls limiting sunshine. We do have a few daffs, crocusses etc. plus this rather nice Camelia growing outside my workshop. I'm impressed by all the green fingers within this forum.
I hope our friends in the "nasty" weather area at present are not too badly affected.

You guys up north seem to have dodged the bullet for the most part and that is good. No snow down south but temps in the 20's at night. The bad part of that is that it will really hurt the peach crop this year, so you'll have to find something else to put on your cheerios :)

Yeah, but those crazy secessionists go overboard with naming everything "peachtree".  There are 71 streets in Atlanta with a variant of "Peachtree" in their name.  With that kind of proliferation, there must be someplace where two of them intersect.

Ain't nothing sweeter than a Southern peach ( especially their freshman and senior years  :lolb: :lolb: :. Seriously, I onced loved the garden, now however, using as much and as many, produce and veggies as we do in a day, I've lost me desire. Do miss the feel of freshly tilled soil between my toes though: Zee, sounds like something you can weigh on in though  :thinking:.

We used to live in southern Missouri. Well known for growing tomatoes. Turn a rock over, plant a seed, and wait.
T's the gardener though.
When we moved to Illinois...not a rock anywhere and the ground was soft loam. Best stuff for gardening.
Then we moved to Pennsylvania. Clay for the most part.
T has spent years bringing in mulch, mushroom soil, horse manure and now has great growing soil.
A priority in this remodel project (of course) was to make sure the gardens didn't get destroyed.

I'll say again...I just love the gardens you can find in the UK. I also like the use of brick and roof tile in the houses. Those things last.

Wasn't allowed to post these until after I had mowed the lawn. For those of you under snow, no apologies for the blue sky!
Pic 1 the back yard,
Pic 2 behind the wall above, the veg patch, the summer crops coming to an end & first planting of the winter veg.

Nice to see so many here into growing your own.....as has been said what is it with machining & growing stuff
