    Raspberries rarely make it to the allotment gate for me I was when I saw them all red and lovely

    I did the same with my grape. Never done it any harm and its on its third year now. The one I have is a drinking grape but I want an eating grape now too
    Originally posted by Dizzy Ditzy
    My previous one was a sauvignon grape, and always tended to be rather late. This one is a Venus which is an eating grape, and am pretty sure it will be ripe and ready before winter comes (my other ones rarely were).

    That said, I only went for the sauvignon because it was rather a sorry specimen, heavily reduced. I wanted to find out if a grape vine would take just there, and it did quite happily,

    I scan shopping, go to pay, click and scan coupon and then receipt. Then don't total it, I feed money in, once it acknowledges I have paid or overpaid I click total bitty, it then asks if coupon ok, i click ok, it them hums and clicks and finishes, make sure you put PAG in the slot fully with the receipt attached AFTER it produces receipt as it sometimes asks for supervisor, and if it put away, it causes annoyance.
    I prefer cash as I lose track of card payments.Also if there is cook up, easier to be refunded in cash

    And I always keep my receipt. If you have other shopping than glitch stuff and have to take something back, you need to prove you bought it at the store and when.

    In my local stores, the APGs are ripped up and binned. Two of the stores have the slots taped over, the other two they only keep the manufacturer's coupons.

    Evening all - I am back, doubt if anyone has missed me ...

    I have great wodges of news to tell but not quite yet - family news.

    I really ought to catch up first with making sure all the bills have been paid and what has happened in the world,
    I was hoping that the election would be all sorted out but apparently not.
    Also London Bridge I still have to read a proper account ....

    In the meantime what else have I missed apart from springwatch and a fortnight of rain ???

    Headache tablets and salad for dinner
