 I know I've probably posted this before, but for those who haven't seen it, I think it's a good take of a bee's bum.

Lovely, Lily.....it's been here before, but well worth another play.

Haven't heard from Frank for a while, hope he's okay.

Growing Sweet Peas 2014/2015

They sound perfect, Yvie...well done, I'm a sucker for a success story.

Planting out can be done anytime from now on, provided the ground is dry & workable.

As I've said many times, your biggest enemy from now on is icy winds.

Edit: and slugs & snails.

Thanks, KEF....they seem to have a certain sprightliness about them just now.

You'd think he would have washed his face before he came calling.

My inquisitive little friend. Never very far away and seems to have a new spring in his step lately.

Hi, Denno

Yes, they will be fine to be grown in the same place this year. It isn't specific to just sweet peas, crop rotation is advisable for all crops to avoid build-up of soil borne pests & disease.

Thanks. I'm at a total loss to understand how anyone could find him anything other than totally repugnant.....and I presume mega rich on the back of it!

A little while ago I asked the question of you lovelies, 'why would anyone buy grated cheese or bagged salad leaves from a supermarket'.

Now, I would ask why on earth would anyone watch Keith Lemon on TV?

I agree with both and with the benefit of hindsight I probably wouldn't have bought mine.

With its narrow blade width of around 9 inches it is quite useful for weeding/hoeing  between rows and is also very lightweight....having said that, I would rather have the (almost) £400 purchase cost.

Nothing compares with peace & tranquillity when using my trusty old spade & fork.
