Good morning all  G'day Pat 

Gorgeous kittens DD 

Hope you get a walk Fairy 

Lazy day ahead ... Meeting friends for lunch ( the ones who planted all my toms for mw when I broke my foot) ... the only thing I have to do other than that is to fill the pies with jellified stock ... and drink coffee ...

Have to find something useful to do when it's too wet and cold to be outside Hosta  

Help with honeysuckles

It's very difficult to keep a honeysuckle happy in a container ... they're woodland plants who like their roots in a large deep cool damp shady space with lots of humous like the woodland floor, and their heads to be in the sunshine as they would be, peeking out from the hedgerows and tree branches.

Containers are generally too warm, dry, shallow and confined for them.

Have you anywhere suitable where you could plant them in the soil?

Pork and rabbit pies out of the oven and cooling 

Jellified stock will be added tomorrow when they're properly cool

LP  ((hugs))   it's good to be able to provide a helping hand and some TLC when needed.   Hopefully your daughter will discover that sometimes, just managing to cope is 'super enough'   Perfection can always be left until the day after tomorrow

The potatoes will be fine to eat. 

The little insects are just feeding on the rotted potato ... they're part of the fauna that lives in the soil and contributes to breaking down the nutrients and making them accessible to plants ... yesterday's Gardener's World looked at a small part of this topic.  It will be repeated today and tomorrow 

However, the compost in your pot is likely to be exhausted of most nutrients and would be best added to your compost heap or turned out onto a bed or border.  Use fresh compost to grow further crops.

Whoops!  looks like the end has been chopped off ... but I can probably work out the rest from there ... thanks very much Obelixx. 

JM and The Carved Angel had a great reputation ... I think Keith Floyd often sang its praises ... then John Burton Race took over, and what with his marriage shenanigans it all went downhill
