A lovely, moving poem ... thank you.

I'd volunteer to drive, but it can get a bit cramped for adults in the back of my convertible, unless you're happy to travel with your legs around your necks 

Happy Sunflowers

Karools!  That's brilliant - I hope you had a wild celebration  

Green Manure Planting Question?

Posted: 05/08/2014 at 06:32

I'd dig the soil over and sow my green manure direct into the soil.  It can then be turned over and incorporated into the soil, improving the structure, when the time comes.

I see no reason for laying cardboard and coir over garden soil.

I'm not an aubergine expert, but this site may be helpful 

It says "....Harvesting period August - October. In a greenhouse from June.

If the aubergines have fully grown and can be pressed in slightly, they are ready for harvesting. Harvesting is done by simply cutting the fruit from the plant with a sharp knife. ...."

The picture on this link indicates that they grow to a good size 

Hope that's helpful

Good morning folks!

Another wall to wall blue sky here in East Anglia   just as well, we've promised niece a trip to Cromer 

Hefty appeared right on cue last night, turning up on the doorstep at 10.30 to tuck into his supper - niece was transfixed 

Glad to see plans are being made for Friday - I'll need an evening of R&R after a week of being an auntie!

However, I do not wash up
