HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 04/08/2014 at 22:00

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

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.

One of the 'fringe benefits' of a long hot summer - the cobwebs will look gorgeous when the heavy morning dews start

We've got lots of new Forkers now - for those who don't know, we plonked a delightful little log cabin down in Verdun's garden - the climate in Cornwall is so much more congenial   - we hold parties there from time to time - in the morning Punkdoc can frequently be found asleep in a clump of one of Verdun's precious grasses - Punkdoc usually puts the blame on Verdun's labrador Spike
