    A long absence

    So, nearly ten years after I joined the Grapevine, I've returned There are so many gardening groups and forums online and I was mad enough to join lots of them all those years ago. Things have moved on, I've dropped most of them apart from MyFolia (where I was an original Beta tester before the website went live) and The Grapevine (I had to search my email accounts to find out which one I'd signed up with).

    Sadly, the developers of Folia have decided to call it a day, partly because they have full time jobs and a family (and Folia was always a side interest albeit it an amazing one) and partly because their codebase wasn't up to modern website standards and it would have been far too complex and time-consuming to rewrite the whole thing.

    So Folia is due to close in mid September and members are saving their data and collecting contacts of friends before everything disappears into the ether. It's very sad and we will miss it.

    So, to get my occasional gardening 'fix' I'll be popping into The Grapevine and, hopefully, contributing to the forums. My darling husband says I have too much on my 'gardening plate' with two greenhouses and a large garden. He's right of course

    At least we now have some help with our two thirds of an acre in the form of two local companies, one does all our extensive hedging and strimming while the other comes to do compost-heap-turning and general garden maintenance. It makes a huge difference to how the garden looks!

    I'm off to make a cup of tea now and look forward to the rain that's forecast in the next 12-18 hours. We need it for the gardens and the water supply but the holiday visitors aren't too keen
