I can’t get the video to play either. But your description of all you have is amazing. So many fruit trees—must be wonderful. Do you have that video on Facebook? Would love to see it.

(Could you just tell Charles Dowding that the seeds were mislabeled but not by you! Maybe you could just send him new seeds from your stash of both tomatoes (vintage wine and chocolate stripe) and tell him you want him to have the correct name for the variety. He could compare to what he has. Elaine

Hey Elaine,

Thank you for your kind words :D

I was using Facebook as a platform to upload my videos. It is really strange that some peeps can watch it and some not.

As for Charles, I did think about sending him a couple more different tomato seeds and sorting out the boo boo of the name of the tomato variety but I think I will do it next year and send him a few more varieties. :D He has saved seeds from the one I gave him because he featured ´Vintage Wine´ tomato plants in one of video whereby he was explaining about pruning tomato side shoots. :lol:

Once again, do let me know if you are able to see the facebook link to the video below - or anyone else too. Cheers! Fingers crossed! ;)

Just for a laugh, dug out his pruning (removing side shoots) tomato video - at 2:28 he mentions Vintage Wine :lol:

I gave him the seeds in Feb 2016 and he grew them the same year, this video was done in Summer 2017 - I make a pretty good P.I. don´t I ? :lol:

Wow, that is an incredible garden. Watched it twice as it is hard to take it all in. Must be even more amazing in summer with all the trees in full bloom.
Loved the chair positioned way in back. Must be nice to sit there and take it all in. You need a couple of them! Pretty house too.

Re: C.D. Pruning Video. Now you have done it! Right there on video for posterity. 😂😂😂.
But hey, you thought it was vintage wine and innocently 😇 passed it on.

Thanks Elaine. It is my pride and joy and occasional ´nightmare´ too. When everything turns green and high and tall. Means it is time to mow! It is like an obstacle course for the poor hubby to mow because this gremlin will always try to look for any available space to plant more stuff! :lol:

Truth be told, hardly ever have much time to sit down during the growing season. There is always something to do. The chair and little table at the back of the garden was also put there in memory of my late mother in law. It was her spot. :)

Will take more pics when when everything starts to turn green.

The house was built new and it is an energy saving house with floor heating using some kinda technology to harness air as a heat source. And we made very sure that the ceiling was flat and not slanting like most of the houses in Germany. Definitely helps too for my 1.94m (6foot3´) hubby! :lol:

Hey Lotte! Good to see you. Hope you are well and enjoying your holiday season. And thank you so much for your kind words too :D

You are so right. When we discovered this piece of land, it was a done deal. Fell in love with it immediately. I can still remember they only showed 1 picture of the land with some horses on the real estate website . And my dear husband went to have a look at it first and then he showed me! By hook or by crook we wanted to live here! We had to wait for over a year before we could finalise purchasing the land because it was shared among 7 very very elderly people born in the 1920s! :lol:

:lol: Thank you. The Dante is my most beloved boy cat! The dear hubby always tells me he also wants to be my cat in his next life! :lol:

Watch this bean thief! That´s him! :lol:

Love your cat eating a green bean. That deserves to go ‘viral’ on the internet-so unusual. I complain to my husband that our cats do NOTHING worthy of becoming an internet sensation!😸

But back to the beans. Have you found a Bush bean that you like? I am a big fan of heirloom Kentucky Wonder Pole beans
Though they don’t taste as good (in Florida) as the ones my grandmother grew in Missouri. I am trying a couple
Bush beans this season but no beans yet.

Hey Elaine,

I know! :lol: Everyone is completely speechless of a cat that eats beans! :lol: UNHEARD of! My mum is utterly amused!

Yes, there are 2 bush bean varieties that I only grow now after trialling them for the past 3 years. Prinzessa and Primavera. They are both very similar really. And most importantly they are very productive (prolific) and they don´t get overly plump too quickly.

I love just stir frying them with chopped garlic and salt and white pepper! yummmmmmmmmmmmy! Can´t get any tastier or easier than this!

And I also have Charles´ infamous always recommended butter beans, a runner bean variety called Czar. Would love to send some of these bean seeds to you, but I am unsure if they might get confiscated due to the US customs. PM me if you would like some and we could figure something out... shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh and shoooooooooooooooooooo customs!

The bush beans that The Dante eats is one of those I recommended too! :lol: He is a testatment of it´s tastiness! haha!
