Good Evening FORKERS

We had our first helping of French beans today, and more raspberries. Already had the first big tomato, others are orange. Didn't do much in the garden today, just some watering. Sorted my photos, got some ready to develop, deleted others.

It's verbascum, common name is mullein. Have a look at this.

MORNING FORKERS

Morning all. Another lovely day. But I dread to think about the water bill, on a metre. Hope they don't have a hosepipe ban. One year the mairie said OK for veg gardens but no for flowers and I lost quite a few perennials. I don't ever have plants that need a lot of water anyway.

Thank you John for your kind comment on Garden Gallery. Constant battle with weeds but when lawn is mown it looks tidy. Hope they turn the hi-fi down soon

How possible would it be to send a photo? Could it be a sort of salvia?

The 2nd two are borage, which is edible. You can put the flowers in water in ice cube trays and have pretty ice cubes. I'm afraid the first two are a bit too blury for me to see properly.

How come when we went to Cornwall 2 years ago in June it was cool and it rained? Not rain every day though, but we took a little boat from Dartmouth to Totnes and it absolutely tipped! All the same it was one of my favourite holidays, saw 9 gardens!

For blanching times I use a book from the Reader's Digest, "Food From Your Garden" that I've had for over 40 years, it always works perfectly. The enzymes that spoil frozen food should be destroyed without over blanching. I use it for making jams and jellies as well.
