HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 16/10/2014 at 12:34

Was going to plant 25 daffodils under the Mirabelle, dug 13 holes and rain started. Bother.

OH  has gone to a Committee meeting. It's one of those days when all my arthriticky bits ache. Feeling like lying on sofa and watching telly. Perhaps I will, why does it make me feel guilty?

Another caterpiller to ID

I asked for an ID on one in September, but mine was a pinky colour, which apparently they are sometimes. It was someone on that thread who mentioned toilet brushes! This caterpillar is the more classic colour.

Be careful, the fine spines can irritate your skin.

My tip for weeding paving is glyphosate. It just takes longer at this time of year.

Nothing on TV until 9pm means 10 pm for me.

cabbages

Are they still baby cabbages? I grow cabbages outside, they like a firm soil and a decent amount of water.

OH has gone to choir practice so shall watch TV, but nothing I want to watch before The Apprentice. It was on last night too, recorded it as OH doesn't like it, so shall watch that first.

Sorry, boring post, but nothing interesting to report. Stacked a load of logs this afternoon.
