Ordered some Provo weevil killer..... I kind of want it to be a big hammer have images of me playin whack a weevil!!!!
Many years ago I and my heighbours had a major crane fly larva problem. Grubs eat roots of grass. New houses , soil disturbed, makes ideal conditions. We used nematodes and haven't seen them since.
Sitting here nursing a cold which started yesterday. Had to cancel day out with local train lovers to Paignton/Kingswear/Dartmouth. Not fair to share my germs in coach, and I feel energyless anyway. Nevermind. Will watch Beechgrove on IPlayer to cheer up. to
Take care, papparazzi on their way as we speak.
What page are you on Chicky? I don't subscribe yet (hopeful Christmas Present!) and am not sure if I am getting the most up to date mag.
Morning all Off into town shortly to get something to mark where I've planted my bulbs. Have a habit of forgetting and disturbing them with further planting
hope the cold doesn't stick around for long Woody.
I was in the GW Mag a couple of months back - my life has changed irreversably since then, I am two months older than I was and about to retire
Have I mentioned that before?
Does that mean I can now retire too? Yippeee !!
lol im on the same thread chicky .... Saw it yesterday and posted on Facebook at last I have been published lmao.....
Any pics? I may be in local paper and on channel 4 re foodbank. Hmmmmmm, in background maybe although I did try to attract attention.
Oh! Made local press recently too.......in "for sale" ads column.
I wont let any of this go to my head......Im still as I always was......evva so 'umble
......can we have a photo of you killing those soil dragons Stacey? You need to take care tho...they are caustic to the skin causing huge blisters. Not nice
Talking of photos verd...
Hot sunny mid summer is back!
Grass cut, lilac hacked err pruned is the technical term, garden looked at and planned for, now in the park.
More digging done - much too hot for digging really but it had to be done. I've also planted out some purple sprouting broccoli plants I picked up from the 'nearly dead' section the other week - they've had a good soak in a bucket and look quite perky, but they're quite small really for September - about 9". I did put some in earlier on, but the cabbage whites decimated them. I don't normally grow brassicas these days as the veg patch is so small and we get good quality 'mainstream' greens at a good price from the farm shop where OH works, but what the heck, there's room for a few this year - if they survive the woodpigeons!
I've also picked a load of runner beans and a bowl of raspberries for supper this evening, and we've just had a sit down and a slice of cake
I was in GW a few months ago but I don't think the papparazzi reach deepest Dordogne. Mini fame because one of the posters here wrote and told me I was in it!
We've been to a birthday party lunch today.
Were knackered after Church BBQ yesterday and all the clearing up and the booze so we woke up at 9.34 this morning.
Here you are folks - just like I promised you
Wow! Will that go round us all?
Depends whether Verdun and Woody are around
That sure looks good.....good enough to eat
That cake could just save my life!! Cold, waxing and waning, feeling a bit rotten. Thanks for cheering me up!
Get well soon woody
Thanks Dove - what did you make for everyone else though?
Get well soon Woody - plenty of hot drinks- and cake
