My broad bean seedlings - all of three inches high have produced pods!!
You leave them unattended for two minutes...

Decision of the day

Its meant to be raining here too. I've washing out, electrical cables running across the garden, I've already watered my pots, I've even loudly mentioned BBQ but still the sun shines!

I'm putting the weed and feed on tonight and hoping for the promised rain that may now come down tomorrow.

Funny just a few months ago I was using a bucket to drain the water off my garlic!!

Today's big decision for me is where does the wormery go. I really don't want them cooking!!

Stacey taught me to soak my chilli seeds in tea overnight (it took a while to master not putting milk in) as the tanic acid mimics a birds stomach juices which encourages the seedling to germinate. 

So perhaps tea bags might work for some!

Still none of the promised rain - I even hung a line of jeans out overnight to make sure it would rain, but nothing.  I shall have to put the sprinkler on the front lawn to water in the weed & feed 

Dove - we've guttering and flooring to lay in the shed, I watered all my pots yesterday... why isn't it raining yet?!

Do I talk too much.?

Mike you're over thinking everything aren't you. If we feel the need to tell you to shut up I'm sure we will do. I don't think any of us are above having a little stampy feet tantrum every so often If someone oversteps the mark. If three people tell you - then is a time to think about it, you're safe for now!

Til then enjoy the hearty debates, the silliness, and KEEP ON IMPARTING THAT KNOWLEDGE OF YOURS! I can't tell you how much I have learnt from this forum thanks to people like you tapping away on their keyboard xx
