Thanks for that Dovefromabove, I have just found out what they are and will be throwing them to the fishes!!!

I'd forgotten that option - hope the fishies enjoy them

Basically it seems that if it's edible or drinkable, or if KEF can play it, then it's Scotch

Afraid those look like slug's eggs.  Squidge them, salt them, put them in the chicken run or on a bird table ... whatever you do, don't leave them where they are!


beans climing

I've seen pictures in the past of beans grown on splayed supports as you describe

In some ways it's logical and if it works for you that's great. 

For me it seems that growing them on the splayed system means that the roots of the bean plants are going to be closer to each other than if grown on a tepee or 'A' frame and for that reason I prefer not to do it your way.

I think the best way, if you have the space, is to grow the beans on a continuous arch over a pathway as I've seen done in some lovely walled kitchen gardens - that way you have the best of all worlds

Pansy problem

My violas and Panolas are the same PG - I'm leaving them for a bit to see if they perk up in the spring - if they show any signs of life I might re-pot them and trim them up a bit to encourage them.

Eggplant Seedlings

I've blown up the pic as much as I can to see if the stems look square like mint - don't think they do but it's all a bit blurry  

Also my spearmint leaves are narrower and more 'spear-like' than those.
