I don't post very often as am not the chatty type, but look in every day to see how you're all getting on.

Sheesh! Only 5512 messages (ranking sixth) of utter twaddle posted on the 'brighter side'.

Sorry about that, but you do rather lead with your chin.

Thanks, Lesley ....taken just about half an hour ago.

Last night, about 3am (when I was debating whether or not I needed a wee)  the moon  shone across my bed nearly as bright as daylight.

Big Onions

Robinsons has been a supplier of giant onion seed for as long as I can remember. Also some garden centres sell young plants of Kelsae & Ailsa Craig, which (IMHO) is a very good way of getting started.

That really is an excellent pic, Dordogne Damsel. It ticks all the boxes from a technical point of view i.e. rule of thirds and has the composition content that wins competitions....well done!

Hello David K can you tell me what pests eat sweetpeas,if any and what can i do to stop it.

Thanks

Baz

 

Baz - sweet peas don't normally have any really damaging pests and those they do have (greenfly & pollen beetle) don't cause very much damage....mice in the early stages and perhaps birds later may be a problem.

There are a couple of things like 'bud drop' & mildew that my be a problem during the growing season, but it's a tad early to be anticipating  every setback.
