Reduced Shredder from Tesco

When I worked our office was a short way from a very large 2 hour Tesco - I did lots of shopping there - don't think I've been since I retired - do you think they'll blame me for their slump in profits? 

Wallflowers didn't flower

I wonder if they need a cold spell to trigger flowering - we didn't get one last winter - I'd leave them where they are, give them a dose of Fish Blood and Bone and hopefully they'll flower next spring. 

HELLO FORKERS!

Think I'll wait to see the flower before attempting an ID - I can see it won't be long 

HELLO FORKERS!

Good morning OL  - the house can be tidied later - you must keep off that foot (I mean it ) - if you want to do something useful you can plan some easy menus that don't involve much standing up to cook - think you know some friendly foodie types you can consult

Brassica issue

Posted: 22/07/2014 at 08:05

Not me - when we came here I swore they were too much trouble and I wouldn't grow them in this garden, but last year I  succumbed to the lure of some Purple Sprouting Broccoli plants in the nearly dead section at the GC and we dined off wonderful PSB all this spring and early summer, so of course we're growing some more this year.  

The other day I inspected the underside of the leaves and removed lots of butterfly eggs - the slug pubs are kept topped up and I'm going to get some beach windmills to keep the pigeons at bay
