Lots of recharging going on here - just been for a trip to get our toenails painted (complete with little flower and everything) so can't put gardening shoes on til tomorrow for fear of smudging.  Sun has made an unexpected appearance, so sitting witha cuppa and a GW mag

Got my Dad staying for the weekend and he wants to visit a local GC (sister has a birthday coming up!) so might mosey along there later .....

Maybe you should aquire some dwarfs to keep the fairies in check - i have heard they can become quite unruly if left to their own devices

Should i top my tomato plants?

Posted: 19/07/2014 at 09:30

Depends on the variety, but most people say top them out after 5 or 6 trusses, to let them concentrate on the fruit that is there.  Having said that, i never count trusses, but top them once they hit the GH roof

Grasses v popular, but missed this thread last night

Great pics - stipa gigantica with its oat flowers is still my favourite though - sort of floaty  Like it with verbena bonsariensis too.  Ours has yet to flower this year though.

Same story here - very wet - although didn't hear any thunder last night.  Today is a day for chores, and will spend tomorrow in the garden.  As others have said, can't be too downhearted as the soil needed a really good soak.  

Hope sun will be shining on the vicarage by this afternoon - and the place will look and smell  lovely and fresh for its VIP visitors.  Enjoy your train ride Panda

Bekkie - probably Joy Larkcom - has written lots of books on veg gardening.

Sitting here waiting for the thunderstorms

Good luck Woody - and remember to enjoy it.  And all the East Ruston visitors - have a fantastic day - wish I could join you
