Ah sure these things happen. As for the garden things still going strong. All is well. I think there was a recent post on apples but they never came back I also don't seem to be getting posts to say someone posted here.


Ah, You were on the wrong one on Facebook.

Try "Irish Gardening". Sue and myself are Mods on it.

It has over 14,000 members and about 100 new members join everyday. (Probably to do with the Lockdown.)

It's extremely vibrant with about 20 or 30 posts per day on it.

All success with it KS, especially if 'Sue' is actually Lady F. My only personal gripe is that you're restricting membership to Facebook subscribers, of which I ain't.

Great site see the Censors have been active very quick on that site, I take it you wont be coming on your holidays to Boora, Cloghan, Ferbane, Rhode, Shannonbridge to tell the locals not to be harvesting peat. Sure you'll enjoy watching the natives retrofitting houses with solar panels and Alpaca wool and you can visit Clonmacnoise to see the Carbon fibre high cross and fake grave stones that the Germans pay a fortune to visit. Very Happy

Had a quick look for that. No success. Is it a webpage or bookfarce as I call Facebook? I don't do Facebook, can't be arsed with the phone beeping all day with notifications. How did you two become moderators so quickly after joining?

Censors didnt take them long to delete my posts, Success, stay away from farcebook its an awful place, You need to type on a phone whit misspells and they are usually short texts that get misconstrued and suddenly its a full blown argument and trolling by people with little else to do.

Tried that the censor is too quick on the keys and its quickly descended into a bit of a farce so left that.

Did anything you wrote get censored? Not any that I'm aware of.

Yeah. Load of people joined since the Pandemic and they really haven't a clue.( I know we all had to start somewhere.) Also most people are really sheep in disguise and follow the current trend of the week. "I read it on the internet so it MUST be true." Smile Smile Smile It'll all calm down in a few months. (hopefully)
