HELLO FORKERS!

Saw a programme last night about meat and ecology, cows eat too much and fart too much, chicken isn't too bad, mussels cost nothing to grow in Scotland except for the ropes and they don't make gas. Insects are very ecological and full of protein - could be the meat of the future!

Onions

I've searched on Google and can't find anything that eats the leaves like that. Most pests and diseases seem to start at the bottom of the onion and the evidence is quite obvious. I would be interested to know if anyone knows the answer to this one.

I think it could still be downey mildew. The leaves go a bit yellow, the flowers drop off, then the leaves, all quite quickly. There is a fine white powdery mould under the leaves, but it's not very noticeable. Busy Lizzies actually like water but so does the disease. If that's it then they need throwing away, in bags, not on the compost.

 Calm down, Dove!

I like the bar sprinkler made by Gardena. They will cover a nice square or rectangle. I have found the round ones rather impractical.

Spent the afternoon pulling out grass and bindweed and generally weeding and tidying, apart from I hour of ironing. Oh bother that reminds me I must get the washing in.

I'm not keen on yellowy heucheras, I think they look ill and I agree with Fairy about the lettuce like one. But I like ordinary green ones with pink or red flowers and I like dark red ones.
