HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 04/07/2014 at 07:09

Oooh yes - Clari....

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields. 

HELLO FORKERS!

I think the organic -v- non organic question probably deserves a thread of it's own

If the people of Africa could grow food for their own consumption, rather than intensive flowers and vegetables to be exported to Europe to pay for their countries' trade deficit, acquired by them buying weapons that the west tells them they need in order to maintain the status quo which was imposed on them in colonial times, they would be more able to feed themselves. 

 

Whoops!  Good morning folks   Another beautiful morning here in Norfolk!

It looks as if we had hoglets in the garden last night - much smaller 'evidence' on the terrace 

The magpies were so cheeky first thing this morning, they stood at the open door and shouted at me until I tipped out the bits and pieces the hedgehogs hadn't eaten - that's their treat every morning. 

Now there's some very angry blackbirds in next door's garden, shouting the odds - probably at next door's cat!

Wisteria planting.

Do I understand that your wisteria has not yet been trained into a standard?  If so, there's information here on how to do it - but it may not be possible if your wisteria has already been trained as a wall shrub, as to train a shrub as a standard you need to start with a single stemmed plant.

lime water

We live in East Anglia - there's a layer of chalk close to the surface here and the area is famous for it's chalk mines.  All our water is very 'hard' - you'll get limescale in your kettle and on your taps, but it won't harm your plants other than the acid-loving ones such as rhododendrons, camellias etc

I suppose that for some people the plants are more important than the moths, instead of regarding them as complementary
