HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 29/04/2014 at 22:35

Oh lucky chicky, that sounds great. The other side of my GH is a wooden potting bench, special offer at hypermarché and a cheap DIY shelving unit that I adapted to be longer and shorter than it would have been.

Anyone see the Nymans prog?

OL, my GH bench is only planks of wood on trestle tables. Once the babies are in the coldframes the bench will come down to make room for tomatoes.

I was a parent on the parent/teachers board at my children's primary school, but it was in France. I wanted to get to know people and learn how it all worked and improve my French. I quite enjoyed it but  the parents weren't at all motivated. When the school wanted equipment they were horrified at my suggestion of a fund raiser, they said it was up to the state to pay.

Weird, have searched on Google, found the odd insect without wings but nothing quite like that. Hadn't noticed the lack of wings, should have clicked on photo a second time.

I would stab it with a fork and scatter a mix of sand, compost, lawn fertiliser and grass seed and sweep into the holes. The lawn should be fed and weedkilled every spring. Weeds always come, they fly in the air (like dandelion seeds) or they are dropped by birds - just a fact of life. If there is a lot of moss you will need mosskiller too and then you will have to rake out the dead moss. Once you've done all that it will look worse to start with but then it will start to look a lot better.

Sorry, didn't give a solution - but I think it will be a temporary problem and they will move on. Just one of those things that sometimes happens, like swarms of Daddy long legs.
