Chilly wind here too - we're wimps - we've put the heating on again. 

OH mowed the lawns this morning and we've been out and about in the City.  Now there's a chicken in the oven and bread sauce made, and I'm on the sofa with my feet up

Hi HandyMike

The answers on this earlier thread should be helpful

It's a mystery ....

Thanks Bob   So it does  ..... although the flowers are pinker than I'm used to.

And I've just tasted it - it tastes like coriander too - how funny - I've not sown any here for at least two years and then it was direct-sown into the veg garden.   And I've not bought any in pots either 'cost OH gets bunches from the farm shop.  Fancy it popping up like that  - but then that's what seeds do. 

It's the pinkness of the flower and stem that threw me - and the fact that Ammi majus popped up unannounced elsewhere in the garden earlier this year.

Your SIL's a lucky girl - she'd better get to hospital early for the second one!  A friend had her first quickly like that - the second one arrived in the foyer!!!

I've been watching this mystery seedling grow into a plant in what I thought was a pot of nothing but compost where some cuttings had failed to take.  Now it has a flower.

Any ideas please folks?

 It looks taller but is about 12" high.

Clocks go forward tonight

OH says there've been fewer wasps bothering the fruit at the farm shop this year.

I'd spread it over the garden now and fork it in in the spring.  Hopefully we'll get some sharp frosts this winter to kill the bugs and blights.

Blight spores  travel on the air, so what little there is in the soil will be negligible compared to what's in the air next year.  Keep plants well apart to allow air to flow through rather than stagnate around them.

By the way, your beans won't have had the same condition as the potatoes and tomatoes.

Need an easy use composter
