Good morning all

Both undergardeners still sound asleep ....... what do you mean, 'they're tired' ?

Flumps ((hugs))

Wonky has been WONDERFUL!!!   Raspberries have been tamed.  Weeds have been pulled up and binned.  Rubbish has been binned.   Runner bean patch has been manured.  Runner bean teepee has been erected and runner beans have been planted.  What is more - deeply troubling anxieties about layout of garden are troubling me no more - Wonky has helped me to prioritise.  This autum will see a re-modelling of part of the garden - there may even be a pergola!!!   She is a complete star!!!

For my part I have fed her with bacon baps and copious mugs of coffee, and allowed her to feed our robins

Oh, and guess what folks!  Hefty has returned - large amounts of hedgehog poo were found in the garden this morning - food will be put out this evening once the blackbirds and woodpigeons have gone to bed

Rosé and olives are now being taken whilst pork chops and Charlotte potatoes are cooking - they will be eaten with buttery broad bean shoots

Is this Japanese Knotweed?

I've done two lots of 20 - does that count?

Pooh KEF - I can smell you from here

Wonky is being a star - digging over the veg patch where the PSB was, and tackling the raspberry runners. 

It's scorching here - I've come indoors and am waiting for the kettle to boil

Sage leaves

Sage will be much happier outside - harden it off and plant it outside

Wonky is here - we're drinking coffee and going out to play in the garden

ID these two plants please

Re oxalis - If you like it then it's a flower - if you don't then it's a weed - they do spread a bit.

ID these two plants please

I agree, the top one is a geum - it looks like the native one - Water Avens - I have them growing around my wildlife pond.

The bottom one is oxalis
