Plants for a fedge

Hello, is this the one you were thinking of?

Sorry, I just can't make out which plant you mean and the photos won't enlarge enough when clicked on.

Potatoes - Only one is flowering

Posted: 19/06/2015 at 09:33

I would have a rummage. Sometimes when potatoes are really happy they don't bother to flower. I'm harvesting mine now.

My Strawberries are all being eaten

It's usually birds, or so I've found. Netting them is the answer. Birds always seem to eat fruit just before it's ripe enough for us.

Lesley, that's why Chris Beardshaw and Poldark are so great. You can watch them on TV without have to do their dirty washing!

Rained in the night. More weeding and dead heading to do.

Fairygirl, I would like to watch Mr. B on Beechgrove - how did you know? But it always seems to be on at inconvenient times, especially as French times are an hour ahead. Like Sunday when I'm in church.

Well done Baza

Morning all.

Have put the flooded carpet back and hoovered it, looks OK, will shampoo it while the furniture is off.

Loads to do in the garden.

I think I'll share a glass (or 2 or 3) of Vino Collapso with RB.

The flooded floor is all washed and shined, a sort of French quarry tile called Tomettes. The carpet is still outside on the terrace with the underlay, lucky the weather is warm and sunny. Have taken the opportunity to Spring clean.

Did more weeding in the veggie garden this afternoon. It's only a month today that I had my garden Open Day. How come there are weeds in there that are thigh high and thistles in flower?
