Good idea to check fruit cages regularly for birds

Excellent thread. I used to net my raspberries until a few years ago when a beautiful blackbird became ensnared and was dead before I could free it. Never again, I made a promise to myself that this must never happen again and I have never netted since.

Oddly enough, I've never noticed that it made much difference anyway....I certainly have more fruit than I know what to do with.......we just share.

Sweet peas

Hi, Anna.....yes sweet peas are poisonous, they contain lathyrogens and should not be eaten.

Not seen them since getting back from rehab.  

What peas are the best

Tell you what peeps, give this one a go and you won't be disappointed....It's an old Victorian variety called 'Ne Plus Ultra'. Needs some sturdy support, as it can grow to 5ft tall.

An excellent pea from every point of view.

Just catching up here.."David K, a typo made you call Bekkie Bikkie, but actually I think that quite suits her so may have to start calling her Bikkie all the time  "

That was a typo, OL....although I do deliberately post words incorrectly spelt at times and never think of using (sic). For instance I rarely  type 'mixed' it's usually 'muxed', I just assume peeps (there I go again) get used to my daft ways.

Growing Roses

Yes, flowerlover, Harkness have been at the forefront of rose growing ever since I've been into roses....'Ena Harkness' is a classic.

I recommended 'Comte de Chambord' here to rosemummy recently.....a lovely pink you may like.

Sorry, gurls!

Lovely shot, Steve.....sadly the file size is too big for me to enlarge.

I do t go to Stafford that often, not sure why, maybe its just that little bit too far? Mom lives quite close to there, it might be worth a day out, do you lnow what the veggie food is like?

Not sure, bekkie.....I mostly seem to find a lamb shank in front of me when I call.
