I'd challenge her assertion that most oriental greens won't be bothered by slugs - my Pak choi has been decimated - despite a gritty soil and the provision of delicious slug pubs

Growing Sweet Peas

The really strong winds and heavy rain we've had over the last few days have bashed my sweet peas about a bit   There's lots more flowers to cut, but I think I may have seen the last of the long straight stems for a bit

Good morning KEF 

I've got a BBQ lunch to go to - a young person I used to work with has grown up and now lives with support in a complex of residential bungalows - she's kept in touch with me and they're having an open day - her family can't make it as her twin sister has had a baby in the last few days, so I've been asked to go along for a couple of hours 

Hope the weather picks up
