Must be the week for it ... just heard that my favourite aunt, Ma's slightly younger sister, has had what appears to be a major stroke - she's always send she doesn't want to go to hospital - waiting to hear from cousin. 

Creeping pest I.D. and help please?

I just pull it up and keep the area regularly hoed so it doesn't get the chance to get settled in - hasn't been a major problem here.

Mine arrived last week 

What is your weather like?

Posted: 31/05/2016 at 12:30

Thunderstorms all night and much of the morning!  Torrential rain and strong winds - one of the bird feeders has been blown down across the squash plants - don't think there's any damage to the plants but I'm not going out there just yet - I'll be drownded 

Help, turf over crushed slate chippings

Posted: 31/05/2016 at 09:02

Remove the slate, prepare the soil properly and sow grass seed - you'll have a better lawn and the money saved from not using turf will allow you to buy some topsoil to bring the level up.  


If a job's worth doing it's worth doing well

PP, if you've got sunshine, could you sow my runners for me please - it'll save me going out and getting soaked

Good morning all :-). Loud thunder and lots of lightening wind and heavy rain over night. At least the tree and plants have been well watered in and the pond has been topped up ... again. 


Now it's just grey and rainy. Looking forward to the balmy West Country :-D


Ohhh more thunder and lightening!!!
