Things you did in the garden as a kid which were extremely bad!

About the only thing we did as regards gardening as youngsters was to walk home fom the Swimming Baths and give marks out of ten for the gardens which we passed.

We did. We spent many many happy hours playing in the streets and alleys, with little of no traffic to bother us.

This is our garden at its best, so as you can see I did grow up to have greenspace arround me.

Some of us grew up in places where the only plant life was the grass which managed to grow in  between the cobbles in the back alleys. Would have been nioe to have had some bit of garden to do something stupid in, at all.

Good manners are a statement of who and what I am. They are what I owe to me, not to others.  If other people have no manners it is their problem and shows their character or lack of it.

I remember a big thread on the old Beeb board about saying Thank-you. Nothing changes much does it?

raspberry help

Well, that is a surprise.  I have never seen a vine weevil adult on our Rapsberry canes in 18 years here and the garden is full of the little blighters. There are weevils which do live on Raspberry canes, but ehy look different to a vine weevil. The only pest we have on our canes is a beetle which attacks ones hands when picking the fruit. It does not harm me but leaves a nasty red lump on my wife's hands.

Excuse me if I am misunderstanding this, but there is now a Web site called Gardenclickers which  is almost exactly the same set up as the old Gardeners Click site.
