My garden is getting untidy and blousy now.

Tomatoes and basil

Basil needs to be treated more like soft leaved herbs, such as mint and parsley. It needs quite a bit of water and enjoys a liquid feed, likes a bit of shade but not hot sun.

Have read back about 5 pages. RB made me laugh a few times, especially "Will 'go for it' and get a bus pass.   Then I can turn the heating off in the winter and get on the bus all day to keep warm."


The French are always taking photos during what I think are unsuitable moments.


Just come back from visiting my little grey mare who I've lent to a teenage girl. Now old Archie horse has died and my daughter wants her horse back (I've been looking after it) I need my mare back to keep my other retired mare company.


Feel so sorry for punkdoc. Do you think if we all wished very hard that his awful NDN would move house that it might happen?

Forkers Helmingham Hall garden visit

Hello Wonky, we just missed you! We went to Helmingham Hall the end of June, but I haven't yet had time to post photos, so I'll put them here. But they are very like yours!


I've just been staying with Daughter 1, who has just moved house and needed some help. No Internet.

Morning all, back from daughter who has just moved house and hasn't yet got internet. Haven't read back yet, but so much to do! See you later.

Morning all. Sunny, forecast here should hit 30° by Friday.


Going to daughter 1 today, 3 grandsons (5 - 10), they've just moved to a bigger house (as has daughter 2). No internet yet, so see you on Friday or Saturday.

Are you sure about the cabbage root fly? The ones in the photo look OK. Are they going droopy and wilting? Next year you could try making them collars from cardboard or felty material to fit around them when you plant them out. Helps stop the fly getting in close enough to lay the eggs. Or you could make a frame or tunnel with fine mesh.
