Flower bed gone wrong?

Yay!  Nothing to beat a good sharp Dutch hoe for keeping the little weedlings under control.

That view sounds fabulous Hosta   Glad you had a good day.

At least the giant carrots etc kept him occupied - his wife only had to turn up to help with the harvesting - she's probably really pleased that he has a hobby 

Weather?  Gorgeous here Hosta - light breeze, blue skies and sunshine ... sorry 

Thread worm lookalike

They're just one of the many many types of worms and nematodes etc that live in our soil, breaking down organic matter and making it available to the plants.

There's nothing to worry about. 

Obviously you teach your children to wash their hands after playing in the garden, just to be on the safe side - particularly as you have pets.

Sorry but I used Weedkiller

I agree, it's not Mare'stail.  

Whatever it is, I think you have two choices:

1. give the area a good digging over, removing every tiny piece of root - prepare your lawn and sow your grass.  If any bits of whatever it is reappear next year as long as you mow regularly it shouldn't cause a problem.

2. spray again with glyphosate and leave - sow your grass in the spring.

DD - that's brilliant - would you be kind enough to do some running on my behalf too - silly for both of us to do it  and it'd save me the bother - I could do something else, like making jelly 

and Fairy,  you could do my h****work and I'll plant bulbs for you   Teamwork!!!

((lots of hugs)) for Bushman and others in need of them 

Anyone seen Plantpauper lately ...

I've just been out to water the grass seed - I checked the temp - it was nearly 23C earlier this afternoon, and is 19.1C now ......... sorreeeeeeeeeeeee ............. I do feel guilty 

Bushman, we have the option of Laphroaig or Balvenie - just a snifter with your supper -  make your choice   

Right Of Way

Posted: 23/09/2016 at 17:34

Could it be changed so that it's a Permissive Path rather than a Right of Way 

That way the exisiting neighbours continue to be friendly to each other; each landowner is in control of 'their bit' and the pathway can be closed if they so choose - then if new neighbours moved in who were not so likeable the path could be closed.  

Just a thought

Rain started, high winds, central heating on. . . . . . I just feel like curling up with a good book. ............ Clari: my daughter once put stirrups though the dishwasher. . . . . no dishes in it at the time!  ....

 Doesn't everyone?  and bits, of course 

Hate to tell you but it's really sunny and warm here   sorry .................... 

Yes, hope BL is keeping herself occupied and not stressing
