Oh so *you* ate all the pies? :)

Loganberry is alive. I wasn't going to tell you that I thought it had died....

Pie, Pies, what is the plural of pies ..... whatever .... I ate them ..... clearly :)

They're hardy so & so's - hopefully you'll get a crop. If not this year looks like a bumper crop here - should be able to put a pot of jam aside. Goes nice with pie I believe :)

Umm, I really doubt we'll get a crop. The main stalk died. All the growth is from the bottom, but it's definitely growing. Or something else is growing in it :D

I'll try to email you a photo, *or* (here's a thought) you could come and see it ;)

That's good actually - the main stalk provided the buried tip a year ago. It gets cut from the donar plant and doesn't always survive. It's the new growth you're after - which will fruit in the 2nd year onwards. Each year you'll get numerous new cains, again fruiting 2nd year, so each year prune away the dead stuff to make way for the new.

New Bicycle, wondering if I should be up front and tell the wife the one I am considering is a “bit” more than I paid for the Golf....or....try and hide it in the shed, bit like she does with new dresses...

Have you seen the Engineering on a Raleigh Bicycle from around the 1950's (and similar)? It is excellent
To remove the inner tube to fix a puncture requires almost complete dismantling of brakes, wheel removal and then the reverse

Volvo S90 hire car deciding to close the windows and sunroof whilst you're waiting outside of it because it's too hot inside at the ferry port.

I don’t believe in n+1. That isn’t enough back up. Surely an army man like you should always pre empt all scenarios.
