It's the fruiting body of Horsetail.  Pull it up, bag it and bin it.

Shame - it could've been harvested and enjoyed over the past couple of months ...but as Bob says, time to sow some more now ... always look forward in gardening, never back 

Wild flowers next to fruit and veg

Posted: 02/04/2017 at 10:56

I grow purple sprouting broccoli, but I net it rigorously with a fine mesh making sure that it's high enough above the plants to make sure the butterflies can't lay eggs on the plants through the netting, and also so that the wood pigeons can't land on the supports and peck the plants through the netting.


Mind you, we don't have rabbits to contend with here - they're happy to stay over on the golf course - so far

Hello again -  now I'm showered, mascara'd and breakfasted (scrambled eggs on toast) and more coffee is being drunk - then  while the dew on the grass dries I'll prep tonight's supper (slow roast rolled lamb shoulder, with potatoes boulangere and spring cabbage) and listen to the Archers omnibus then I'll be out there ... OH went out before breakfast and turned the compost heap for me 


Wonky tells me her greenhouse will arrive tomorrow  perfect!  the day before her big day

Hi


Wild flowers will be fine near a veg patch.  The wild flowers will attract pollinators for your beans and peas.  


The creatures that might feast on your veg will find them anyway, whether or not there are flowers nearby.
