Bump, from the respect shown to you and the welcome you received I can only assume you are a person held in great esteem by the folk on this forum, even YB.
So I had better introduce myself, I am Sussexman from Sussex over the pond. I am 6ft3ins long and 6ft high. I am of senior years, getting closer to 70 than I find comfortable. gardening to me is a way of life.Trouble is just when I think I know what I am doing I suddenly realise I don't and have much to learn.The folk on this forum are the salt of the earth and I am proud to call them my friends.I hope Bump we will have a kindly association. I feel we have a similar sense of humour.
