Oooh, I love a roast beef dinner - but I'll have to pass on it today because this morning I rubbed a chicken with EVOO, seasoned it, and put a quartered lemon in the cavity then popped it in the slow cooker with fresh tarragon and a quartered green garlic bulb (grown by OH )

We'll have it this evening with good bread, home made mayo and some salad leaves from the garden.

I've obviously had lots of large whites in my garden over the last couple of days.  I've just inspected the undersides of my broccoli leaves and removed loads of eggs!

Hi Topbird - it was lovely to meet you 

I'd love to go to Beth Chatto's garden - haven't been for years and years and years ......

Hostas

Haven't seen Hostafan on here for a while - was asking after him just the other day   I hope he's ok and is enjoying his garden.

I've got big chunky hostas that have never been troubled by slugs before, but this year they're quite lacy in places. 

I think the thing is that after last winter (or rather the lack of it) slugs have increased in size and number - hopefully we'll get a proper winter this year and it will reduce them to more manageable proportions.
