Evening all.

Still at work; just another four hours before I can pitch my camp bed up in my classroom and snooze until the day shift take over.

At least tomorrow will be quiet! Just a gearbox change to do on my car :/

Do I really need all of the John Innes for seeds??

I just slap my seeds in whatever compost I have knocking around! Mind you I don't grow the difficult seeds that might benefit more.

Failed allotment inspection :(

Worth telling them you had a long holiday and will be doing it organically so they know it won't be a quick weedkiller and run fix.

Oh how awful! Can you strim the worst of it so it at least looks tidy and work on weeding from there?

That cucumber sounds interesting Wildflowers. Please keep this thread going it would be nice to see what results people have as I plan my own allotment for next year!

Pat; perils of working in a haunted building! I will be working my normal shift then 'volunteering' to stay all night so people can come and investigate the ghosts that reside. At least I didn't have a scout group last night at the museum so I got a decent nights sleep. Sometimes I don't see my partner for several days!

The weather report is threatening 24'C today! But right now it's grey and miserable. Not quite as grim as yours though Pat.

Right I'd best get to work! (via the supermarket to stock up on snacks)

Morning all. Just preparing for a 20 hr shift.

I wish Dove were here I'm sure Verdon said he was taking a break but my memory isn't good enough to be sure. Dove would know instantly!

Lots of faces I don't recognise posting on the forum this weekend; nice to not see them swamped with nonsense but a shame I don't know all the answers yet to help them!

Hosta; don't get too hot!

Pat; enjoy the rain! Isn't it funny how we long for it in the summer then come autumn... yuck!

Where's my inbox?

Look at the top right of your screen and you'll find your profile picture. Click on it and you'll get a dark grey box like the one in the image above.

Hope this helps!

I ask because I brought some root from Tesco and I'm not sure that's sea holly either!!
