Can't agree more: I'm in Armley, Leeds (no prison jokes, please) and enjoying some nice windowsill and small veg patch gardening.

Gardenatics, is that garden in Adel the walled garden with the wildlife?  I remember years ago, when I used to do some conservation work, going with some friends early one morning to watch the kingfishers.  Sad to say, I have no idea where it was now, but maybe that's a good thing.

Regards to all,
Sue

Hi SueK,

No I don't think Yorkgate is the garden you remember, as it's not a walled garden, but does have extensive hedges and 'Room' like parts, so maybe. Never seen a Kingfisher there either!

Nice to see so many Yorkies on the board.   

My Dad's a Yorkie through & through & despite 45 years of living in north lincolnshire he's still got his accent.   I tend to speak like him & my grandad even though I'm now over in Leicestershire.   When ever I visit relatives in either Pocklington or Holme upon Spalding Moor I always pick up the dialect again & nobody can understand me when I get back to work.

Aye up, now then, si'thee.
Adopted Yorkies both of us (well, the short arms, long pockets and "owt for nowt"), living in Chapeltown, Sheffield and growing weeds in Harley - just down t'road from thee, Northerner.
I'm a good old London boy and Jan is a Lancastrian but, after 15 years here we are just becoming accepted!
Once upon a time we were the newbies from Harley allotments. Now we're old codgers!

Hi Carloso

Great to see a local about - was beginning to think I was the only one on these boards in the Hull area!  My plots in West Hull, on the Newland Ave site, not far from the University.  Do you have a plot in Burstwick or are you lucky enough to have a garden that does the job?   :)

PS:  Only took over a jungle (and I mean jungle - marestail, dandelions, grasses, not been cultivated for over 27 years!) in late May so no chance of me doing digging duty in Burstwick - only on my third raised bed and who knows how many more to go?  ::)
