Can I grow more raspberry canes from the seeds from my raspberries?

Polka are well-flavoured large fruited autumn raspberries - mine are spreading throughout the veg patch!

Does anyone know what this little critter might be?

Don't know any sawflies that have purely friendly intentions, but I tend to regard them as food for the birds rather than worry about them

Think its the larva of the Pear Slug Sawfly

Give it lots of room  

Don't let it dry out in the summer.  It can be grown in a container but it'll never produce at its full potential.

Afraid that looks like a blight-type condition - lots of them about this year - the conditions have been perfect for it. The appearance of black blotches on the stems is a real indcator.

The fruits look as if they're changing colour so I'd remove them all - keeping them on the trusses if you can -  discard any blight affected fruits - and place the sound ones indoors in the warm.  Most of them will ripen.  It's what I've had to do with mine.

Take up the plants and bag and bin them.

It's definitely a round squash of some sort - probably a Crown Prince possibly crossed with something else - loads and loads of flowers of both sexes, but no fruit has set.  Never mind, it's absolutely beautiful

My new splint has arrived, courtesy of my daughter - her stepmother works for an orthotics company, and armed with the appropriate measurements she's sent me a smart black splint that is comfortable, much more supportive, and yet lets me use my fingers without flexing my wrist - wonderful   And even better, it doesn't smell as if it's been worn for a week on a sweaty arm

The old one is in the wash as I type

not happy

Possibly Fig Rust?  The conditions have been perfect for it
