Little gems...

Posted: 29/06/2014 at 06:55
How big are they Zoomer - it's all very well to say 'Pick them and eat them now' but if they've only got say 4 leaves, that's a bit of a waste.

I'm growing Little Gem in a raised bed. I thinned them out when they were tiny - transplanting the thinned seedlings so they're a little bit behind the first row.

Now they need thinning again so we'll be having salad with the thinnings any day now - I shall be thinning them to about 6" apart and I'll leave the rest to form lovely firm hearts.

ID please

Aha, some googling has come up with this

It looks as if it's something along those lines - it says that sparrows like eating the flowers so you'd better top up the bird table to distract them

ID please

The plants on the left (large leaves) look like the bedding-type nicotianas.

The one with the yellow flowers and succulent-type leaves I don't recall seeing before, but someone will know them

Good morning Bekkie and any/everyone else who isn't sleeping off smiley exhaustion!!!

Sunshine and blue skies today - nothing urgent needs doing in the garden today apart from dead heading some roses, so .............. we thought we might go to the seaside!!!

It's been a busy day in this part of Norfolk. Hope Snoodle's part of Norfolk enjoyed a lovely birthday party.

Now, although I haven't got a yawning smiley, Dove is going to doze - see you in the morning folks - sweet dreams everyone

That sneaks in along the back of the Shady Bank and tries to hide behind the bases of the clematis and honeysuckles Grrrrr

Bee Alert ! Your lotty needs lerts !

Bees as individuals aren't long-lived creatures. If there'd been a wild bees's nest in the tree then a hundred dead bees on the ground below it would be quite normal.
