Thanks Wonky.

I was just wondering whether to keep quiet or put in a word for the fairies and the natural world in general.

Fungi are part of life. We need to get away from killing everything that doesn't immediately please us.

Wonky!!!  I'm not joyless!!! The fairy rings were fine - I liked the toadstools and the green circles - what I didn't like so much was the brown circles of dead grass afterwards so spiking and watering just got the grass growing again

I copied the wrong post!  I meant to copy this one

Dove, i don't venture doon sooth too much but seem to remember norfolk as being very very flat, an alien landscape to even a lowland scotsman like me and there's no distillerys hence i tend to stay up here even for ma holibags

Wrong on both counts I'm afraid Bushman

I have recently harvested my garlic and it is looking good but on several of the plants there is an extra bulb about 5 cms above the main one, in the stem! Why is this?

Ours did this last year. 

"... In late spring some garlic varieties produce flower stalks that have small bulbils. Cut these stalks off. This will insure that all of the food the plant produces will go into the garlic bulb itself and not the clusters of bulbils..." extract from http://www.burpee.com/vegetables/garlic/garlic-article10268.html

Dove, it is one of those cage jobs, for the last couple of weeks he's been looking up at it, but it's only in the last few days he's been up there.

As I said, it takes them a little while to work it out - bless - but they get there

tomatoes on the vine

Tomatoes should pollinate themselves - try giving each plant a little shake every time you go into the greenhouse.
