Must be the week for it ... just heard that my favourite aunt, Ma's slightly younger sister, has had what appears to be a major stroke - she's always send she doesn't want to go to hospital - waiting to hear from cousin. 

Creeping pest I.D. and help please?

I just pull it up and keep the area regularly hoed so it doesn't get the chance to get settled in - hasn't been a major problem here.

What is your weather like?

Posted: Today at 12:30

Thunderstorms all night and much of the morning!  Torrential rain and strong winds - one of the bird feeders has been blown down across the squash plants - don't think there's any damage to the plants but I'm not going out there just yet - I'll be drownded 

Help, turf over crushed slate chippings

Posted: Today at 09:02

Remove the slate, prepare the soil properly and sow grass seed - you'll have a better lawn and the money saved from not using turf will allow you to buy some topsoil to bring the level up.  

If a job's worth doing it's worth doing well

Good morning all :-). Loud thunder and lots of lightening wind and heavy rain over night. At least the tree and plants have been well watered in and the pond has been topped up ... again. 

Now it's just grey and rainy. Looking forward to the balmy West Country :-D

Ohhh more thunder and lightening!!!


Please Recommend a Liquid Slug Killer

Posted: Yesterday at 12:01

I put a couple of inches of a dark ale in each of three yoghurt pots and sunk them in the veg patch yesterday between the freshly planted squash plants ..... this morning  there were seven large slugs and several smaller ones drowned in the beer and three perfectly  intact squash plants.  Result!!! 

Well, beer's a liquid isn't it????? 

And it won't do the dog any harm if he does get it
