HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 22/06/2015 at 18:47

Baby is cute, but like a baby, but not very like his 13 month brother was. When I arrived son and baby were asleep, DIL and I went for a drink on the hospital terrace by the café. DIL said she was too excited to be tired. It was an easy birth and she had an epidural. She'd still been up all night though.

I will be at DD's Open Day in the afternoon. Would you like a chocolate cake or a fruit cake with apple and sultanas? Both will freeze.

Just off to the hospital to see new grandson. 9th grandchild, should be an old hand now, but it's always exciting.

Any idea what this is?

I still think it's clary, salvia family. Do it's leaves have any smell? There are white ones as well as blue.

Good morning Marion.

Pat, when you click on the oak tree icon you will probably get an error message after you have selected your photo, click on bottom right where it says OK and it will go away. But if you don't have a lap top like mine, eg tablet, you may have to click on something else. If you have slow broadband, like me, you will have to wait a bit for each stage.

Weed or not?

Not "Monch", I have that. Plant is shorter, not so upright, fatter leaves.

Weed or not?

I think it's horseweed or Canadian fleabane (same thing)

Weed or not?

I'm pretty sure it's a weed that has masses of little white flowers that then turn into fluffy seeds like mini dandelions and get everywhere. But I just can't remember the name. They often grow on waste ground and are very common here.

Thank you

How to set up a soaker hose system ?

Posted: 22/06/2015 at 08:49

I've used a soaker hose, but it's not on a timer. I just attach the hose from the tap to it. It worked very well at first in a long narrow bed but as plants grew up and weeds started it became harder to see when weeding and planting and I put my fork through it several times so it's now fairly useless!

I have one for the veg garden as well which also worked well for tomatoes and courgettes, but this year I haven't got round to dealing with it. It can be a bit of a fiddle to wind it round the places you want it, especially when it was new and a bit stiff, and it needs to be pegged down.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Oh dear Will! Will they get over it?
