Hi Miranda

There is a big upgrade being planned for the site - somewhen   Until then we struggle on and grin and bear it - we gardeners are good at that

Crown Prince squash???

Posted: 19/08/2014 at 09:20

Hi Melspade 

I love Crown Prince squashes, and usually buy several from the local farm shop to store in the garage and use over the winter.   If this contains only half the genetic material of a Crown Prince there's a chance that it's going to produce something useful, and it was far too interesting not to allow the seedling to grow and flourish.

I used to keep a little flock of Southdown ewes - they're so amenable they'd happily eat the lawn and not wander off - but I don't have them any more 

It's my birthday

Insulting dove!  I've gone off those tiny donuts anyway.   Focused on ESP large cream ones from my local pasty shop. 

Well, perhaps you could get a discount for a bulk buy and feed this lot while I'm out today

We'll get another one for tomorrow - I'll be out today so you'll have to do with slightly stale scones, or make something yourselves 

Perhaps Verdun will go on a doughnut mission

Fantastic!  Glad the weather held for you 

And I'm so glad you kept that tree in the corner - it's going to help your garden look established and give it character.

I hope you're feeling very proud of yourself - you've done amazingly

Its amazing isn't it BizzieB. They are the flying insect equivalent to the Great White shark,the apex predator.

However,they can in turn fall prey to the Hobby,one of the few birds of prey agile enough to catch them 

We saw a Hobby the other evening, flying along a hedge bank near one of the Norfolk Broads - think it was after cockchafers or somesuch
