MORNING FORKERS

Posted: 26/07/2013 at 08:57

GG - have just read through some posts and saw you were going to spread stinky manure and alarm bells rang! If manure is well rotted and ready for the garden it should NOT smell. If it smells it isn't rotted enough.

Going to lunch with friends today. Weeding a little gravel bed first. Sounds easy, but it's got ivy, brambles and goose grass in it. And the honeysuckle on the pillar at the side of the stone steps has rooted in it.

A helping hand to identify the plant

Def. not a courgette! The way the bud is reminds me of a China Aster, which is an annual, but it's years since I've grown them.

Hard to follow Verdun on that sad note.

It's been so hot today 34° and still 31° at 9.30 this evening. We found OH's old air conditioner  and set it up in the bedroom. It was 27° in there. But I won't be able to sleep with it on, it's so noisy.

Veg is coming thick and fast from the garden now. Cucumber and tomatoes at lunch time, runner beans, carrots and potatoes this evening and raspberries. Strawberries tomorrow, but we are out to lunch with friends so it will have to be in the evening.

Lovely, I like Blue Boa. What is that golden plant next to it?

GG, the veg garden was manured and it's watered so it grows lovely weeds.

No rain here. 34° forecast. Leeks need weeding badly before they disappear all together, but they are in the sun. I got up late as catching up on the very bad night before, slept like a log, but late as OH didn't go to bed until nearly 1am.

I enjoyed it too. Gardens with plants are the best sort! And there were grasses for Verdun and roses for me.

Good to have you back Nut.

That's lovely Bev, a real oasis. You've done so much with the space.

Rose help please

I agree, it's happy but it had a bad time, give it time to get over it.
