Zak your picture doesn't work.  To post a photo you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post and follow the instructions - afraid it doesn't work for phones - yet.

HELLO FORKERS!

Bill, good to see you - no need to apologise - we were just hoping that all was well with you.  Sorry to hear that your wife has been unwell but glad that she's on the mend now, and what a lovely memorial for your son - you must be very proud that he was so well thought of 

Panda - take a little more water with it next time

Should I thin the squash fruitlets?

No, you're learning just like the rest of us .... just some of us have struggled a bit further along the path ........

And sometimes I tease people if I think they know me well enough 

And yes, there are some varieties of cucumbers - the greenhouse ones, which produce fruit without being pollinated so you remove the male flowers because if they did pollinate the females it makes the fruit taste bitter.

Do you know the name of it?  Some roses only have one flush of blooms, others will flower again later.  Some are prized for their lovely hips

Brassicas raised bed depth

Posted: 13/07/2014 at 11:28

Oh, so they do - never come across that before!

Right -  I think the kale and broccoli will need more depth than that or they'll get rocked by the wind which will cause root damage.  As they get bigger I'd put a cane by each one and tie in so they're as firm as they can be.  You can also top the soil up in the beds with the kale and broccoli in as much as you can as you can get hold of topsoil/compost.  

The cabbages might be ok - what sort of cabbages are they?
