Hi, Steve...I would suggest that be sure your bricks are not porous, otherwise they will crumble with frost.

The mortar mix will be 4 parts sand to 1 part cement.....adding a few drops (no more) of washing-up liquid will give the mixture elasticity and thereby be easier to spread.

PS. tell the builder's merchant that you need the sand for brick laying, as there are several different types for specific uses.

 Of course they're okay to eat, Patricia.

This misshaping can get quite amusing at times.

 

 

 

Has lawn food killed my lawn

The active ingredient for killing moss would probably be sulphate of iron.....this does have the characteristic of turning patches of moss black.

On the other hand I would rather agree with punkdoc, maybe you have used too much.

It's called 'chocolate spot', tastequeen and doesn't affect the eating quality of the beans.

Thanks, Lorraine.....far below their potential though.

Being sweet & mild, they do make excellent eating.
