Talkback: Gardening makes you happy

Posted: 19/07/2013 at 12:41

What you like doing is what makes you happy. Gardening to a large extent is outside housework. Grass cutting=vacuum cleaning; weeding =- dusting and so on. Who would claim that housework makes one happy except for some of these people with OCD or close to it?

Being out side is a pleasure, but gardening?........................not so sure myself.

 

And before you jump on me if there was a thingy for tongue in cheek I would use it!

Another whinge, this time about sticky labels. I bought some nice plastic pots for my Auricula theatre plants. Great except that one out of each set of 5 is vitually useless because of the label. Even with a dab of Turps, the pot still has a mark on it. Totally unnecessary too!

Snails Eggs

Unless of course they are slow release fertiliser pellets in the compost.

Snail and slug eggs are usually translucent rather than cream or green or even blue like the fertiliser.

I do wish that the majority of photos on here did not come up with an error message when I try to enlarge them. Perhaps people should use a direct link from Photobucket, be a lot easier for these weak old eyen.
