THIS YEAR, THEY RATHER TOOK ADVANTAGE OF MY GENEROSITY. 10% TO ME, 90% TO THEM. BUT I CAN GO TO THE SHOPS, THEY CAN'T.




 At the farm shop where OH works  the blackbirds help themselves to cherries from the stall outside the front of the shop ... OH has to chase them off 


But in the garden  I don't net gooseberries, raspberries, strawberries or black currants and the birds seem to ignore them ... I do net brassicas in the winter.

Rain and grey skies have been replaced by blue sky and bright sunshine   Not what the forecast says ...

As  for headasyet's assertion that it'll destroy the plant ... it's obviously imperative that we should go out and kill every insect immediately ... goodness knows how plants have managed to survive this long ................. or he could just be some chancer trying to promote a website on his personal profile Der!!!
