Hope they get that knee sorted soon Hosta - shame about the holiday

Can you identify this plant?

I think you should get some fake flowers, stick them on, take a photo and send it to the present giver, to let them know the recipient has been taking good care of the plant

Hello folks - we're back - all shopping tasks achieved with the help of a good lunch and a white wine spritzer in Carluccio's   Car is also spick and span and gleaming inside and out.

Every time you walk past the raised beds, bang loudly  on the sides with a stout pole - it gives them a headache and they hate it - they won't want to set up home there if you make it uncomfortable for them.

Good luck!

Wont go without a fight....

That looks over-ripe to me Rinus - I think that looks as if it's ready to dry, for popcorn and Mexican dishes etc. 

I wouldn't wait until the husk is dry and brown if I wanted to eat it as Corn on the Cob - it'll be hard and tough

This article should help


Rats, cats and bids

If you've got rats established there, rather than just the odd visitor, I'd get professional pest controllers in and sort them out properly.
