HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 05/08/2014 at 06:17

Good morning folks!

Another wall to wall blue sky here in East Anglia   just as well, we've promised niece a trip to Cromer 

Hefty appeared right on cue last night, turning up on the doorstep at 10.30 to tuck into his supper - niece was transfixed 

Glad to see plans are being made for Friday - I'll need an evening of R&R after a week of being an auntie!

HELLO FORKERS!

Verdun, don't you remember when you found out that someone was sleeping in your shed - that was us 

Bekkie - veggie full English it is! 

I forgot, pancakes and maple syrup also on offer 

However, I do not wash up

As I'm the only one who gets up in the morning I'd better do breakfast -  choose between

*full English with bacon, sausage, fried bread, fried free range eggs, black pudding and mushrooms

*scrambled eggs on toast with chives,

*dippy eggs with toastie soldiers or

*croissants and home made cherry jam.

Orange juice and coffee or tea?

That brings back memories - when I was a child living in a very old and run-down farmhouse we had Ground Elder, roses and Kerria japonica coming through the skirting board into the drawing room!!!  

I would get some weedkiller gel containing glyphosate and apply it to the leaves.  As soon as it dries it will be harmless to humans and animals.  Leave it until the leaves are brown and dead - it may take a while - that will give time for the active ingredient to have travelled down the stems to kill the roots.  Then you can pull it up.

Hope that's helpful

Hi  Panda  - have a look on the Beth Chatto thread 

Drama in the compost heap

They cover quite a wide range and eat fairly infrequently - he'll be finding plenty of frogs and toads, nestlings and small mammals to keep him (or more likely her) alive.
