 Well, I think our 'new' wildlife pond is well and truly established now 

what is this

Posted: 13/07/2014 at 16:36

It's hemp, most likely grown from wild bird seed - it's from the same family as marijuana but much less potent.  

Any of the stronger hemp seed used in bird seed is heat treated to prevent germination, so yours is likely to be industrial hemp, used for making fibres for rope and cloth.  

What type of weed is this and how do I get rid of it?

Zak your picture doesn't work.  To post a photo you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post and follow the instructions - afraid it doesn't work for phones - yet.

Bill, good to see you - no need to apologise - we were just hoping that all was well with you.  Sorry to hear that your wife has been unwell but glad that she's on the mend now, and what a lovely memorial for your son - you must be very proud that he was so well thought of 

Panda - take a little more water with it next time

Should I thin the squash fruitlets?

No, you're learning just like the rest of us .... just some of us have struggled a bit further along the path ........

And sometimes I tease people if I think they know me well enough 

And yes, there are some varieties of cucumbers - the greenhouse ones, which produce fruit without being pollinated so you remove the male flowers because if they did pollinate the females it makes the fruit taste bitter.  

MY NEW ROSE IS LOOKING VERY POORLY

Absolutely agree Obelixx - and a lovely choice of rose - love that colour - trying to make room for it here .... a container might be the answer
