Talkback: How to harvest garlic

Derek what programme are you using to access this website? FireFox / Explorer / Google Chrome? I'm finding they work just fine so it might be a problem on your side for instance some software that needs updating to allow you to view.

Can anyone identify these roots / bulbs?

 That wouldn't surprise me Welsh. Everything already established in this garden is of the "almost a weed" variety. Still at least this one looks nice!

Morning all!

Can anyone identify these roots / bulbs?

Thanks! There's quite a lot of that in the garden already with yellow flowers (bet I didn't take a photo!) So this little lot will be destined for the recycling unless its viable to plant as is to grow on at friends / family / anyone who wants it?

I'm digging a more neglected area of the garden and have found several handfuls if these.., erm things.

Can anyone tell me what they might be from?

Evening all. Yes I am the only woman draughtsman. I don't think they're discriminating by gender / disability and I'm tie last in with another chap. They're judging us on a point scoring system and using that to pick the winners.
If I'm not given anything to do by 11:00 tomorrow I'll be going to the boss and coughing politely that they quit messing about and just let me go.

My dream job unfortunately hasn't the funds to pay me so that's the dead duck floating. My CV is out there with other companies so we'll see what adventure happens next. You never know I might be about to find something terribly exciting

Gardeners hands! Best cream?

Becky - keep an eye on those hands and please scuttle with all speed to a doctor if you start to think you're not in control. The last thing you want is to get an infection in the skin and some nasty scarring caused

I'm loving my red onions this year - they're so STRONG to taste! I'm going to miss them when we run out and we have to go back to shop brought.

My cousins children were both huge - so much so that when the eldest was born on the 1st April I called my aunt out as a joker when she said the weight (14lb something). She says she dreads to think how big they'd have been had she not walked 3 / 4 miles a day and been on her feet all day in a very active job. I wonder how much small babies of the past were down to smoking / poor diet?

 

GFantic - try them and see!

Talkback: How to improve your lawn

I'd add it all in together Andy. Why over complicate a job by having to spread it three times? I don't think it would do any good to add the sand first to help with drainage and then have to walk all over it squashing it down to lay the grass seeds.
Grass grows very well so you wont have to be as delicate as you think - I'm not sure what the weather is like with you but remember to water it if the rain isn't around to give it a good start
