It's strange alright something to do with cacheing and cookies i think. forcing a reload with f5 or the circular arrow seems to work.

Feel sorry for who gets the job of figuring out whats not configured correctly.

hi problems again?

I might be wrong but I have a lot of rhubarb from a single crown I planted this year in a sunny spot in the garden. A bit of feed might help but plenty of sun and lots of water seem to be what rhubarb likes.

If you have seen ornamental rhubarb growing well there is always a good supply of water which is what it needs to support the huge leaves and stalks.

Well done tracey. I forgot that one vital detail after you click upload and wait eventually you either move on to the next step, save or you get a rotten tomato or sometimes just an error message but something will happen

Clicking on the pictures above will show the pictures full size, I left the mouse pointer over the buttons that need to be pressed.

 If your using a smart phone / tablet you will not have the toolbar and will have to do things differently by uploading to a site that allows photo sharing and posting a link/url/address of the image

Select the icon


dialogue window appears select open

now find the picture this looks different than the one you have because I run linux, but windows has something with the same function. select open.


next select upload.


finally select save you can give a title/name to the image but it doesnt make much difference.

Your image will now be part of your post and you can carry on as normal. Sometimes something may go round and you get a rotten tomato. if this happens try uploading the picture again. If it happens again you may have to try again later.  My browser window looks a bit dfferent from yours but think of it like a car , its my car not your car but they both work pretty much the same

Hope this helps on this nice bright sunny morning

dead strawberry plant

Posted: 17/07/2013 at 16:03

might actually be too much feed and water.  its a little late for planting strawberries for fruit this year might be too strong a fertilizer most of mine are 1 capfull to a gallon of water.

strawberries like it a bit dry too much water and the plants will not like it.  try cutting down on the watering hopefully they may recover and grow runners and you can transplant into the garden and get a better crop next year.

Good selection of weeds here too again a bit of a mix the poppys have definately been a success others much less so.

biggest problems are nettles thistles and grass.  Still doing a bit of weeding each day is slowly bringing some order to the chaos, got great colours now. You dont miss my garden when you drive past.

Car repairs are nearly complete just a wiper blade and a tyre to change. To be fair johnny shine has a great set of tools and it was fairly easy work swopped in a trackrod on one side and a trackrod end on the other. Johnny had a great tool a bit like a socket for undoing the track rod there is a little gear built in which rotates the socket from the side. Very clever stuff. tracked it up and while we were at it balanced the headlights.

Back now for a small cleaning session.
