You still around Pat?   For some reason Im wide awake and can't get back to sleep. Ive made a warm drink and come back to bed; while the kettle boiled I went for a wander around the garden in nightie and bare feet in the moonlight.  I heard tawny owls earlier but now everything's quiet and still and quite magical.


we had very good fish and chips on the beach then went onto the pier for a drink - rubbed shoulders with Richard Coles who is doing his usual Saturday morning Radio 4 programme live from there tomorrow.


The tide was high and the sea was flat calm and very beautiful. 


There's that tawny owl calling again ...

What's this on my rose?

Looks to me like Robin's Pincushion aka  'Bedeguar Gall'  caused by a tiny gall wasp.  


Not really a problem.

As Nora has said - all those problems have been acknowledged and have been prioritised on the 'GW To Do List' - however, there are other demands on the tech team's time  - Nora has promised to keep us informed 

What is this?

Have been out pottering and potting on but suddenly, large drops of rain out of a clear blue sky!  Grabbed the nearly dry washing off the airer on the terrace and have come in for a cuppasoup and a bit of Guilty Pleasure (Judge Judy)   It won't be for long 'cos I need to go back out there as soon as the big ploppy stuff stops - must hoe and thin the spinach beet seedlings

Monty planting florence fennel near bean

I've never ever had a problem growing fennel near other plants. 


In this garden I've grown it near runner beans, broad beans and french beans, tomatoes, lettuce and Swiss chard with no ill effects.

tumbling tom trim ?

I'd leave them be - tomatoes don't need sun to ripen, only warmth ... and there's plenty of time for those top flowers to produce fruit - my tomatoes go on fruiting well into September, sometimes even October - you'll be deluged with tomatoes

1. Yes, the Edit function is only available for (I think) five minutes after posting.


2. I have the same problem with Latest Posts on my (somewhat elderly) iPhone.  Apparently it's so old that Apple no longer update its software.  Yours isn't as old as mine - perhaps check and see if the latest updates are installed?
