Blight

Posted: 18/08/2014 at 14:17

The blight that affects potatoes and tomatoes only affects plants of the solanum family, so whatever is affecting your quince tree, it won't be potato blight.

Friend has just left to head back to Gloucestershire - I've sent here with some garlic chives and a couple of meals-worth of the yellow wax beans - now to do the washing ....

The great thing about those yew hedges is that they're hollow, so you can go inside - it's like being a child in a 'camp' again

Wow, thats quite a hedge! I wonder how much maintainance that needs

That's only one of them Bekkie, there's another one at the other side of the front lawn, and then there's all the topiary at the back

Good morning all   

We had a lovely picnic yesterday 

http://s4.gardenersworld.com/uploads/images/original/56904.jpg?width=614&height=350&mode=max

 Just some of our picnic spread   The weather was hot and sunny with occasional cooler gusts of wind - we sat and chatted until about 5pm when we thought they might be thinking about throwing us out, so had to clear up and share out the leftovers - think I won't have to cook for a week! 

Sadly we didn't have time for a walk around the gardens (did I say the picnic was at Blickling http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/blickling-estate/ ) yesterday, but we'll be going again soon - we go several times a year as it's so close - and the gardens and grounds are fabulous in the autumn - in a good year the fungi are amazing  So yes please Chicky, an Indian Summer would be good 

HELLO FORKERS!

Hello folks! We're back from our picnic, stuffed and exhausted and with our feet up and a glass of Sauv B. The sun shone, the wind blew and the wasps visited. Loadsa lovely food was eaten and lots was left and shared out to take home. I don't think I have to cook for at least a week.

I've not had a chance to read back yet, so hope all are well and happy - I'll have a read tomorrow
