Chilis Shrivelling

Posted: 27/07/2014 at 14:26

Ommthree, do I understand that it's the chilli fruits themselves that are shrivelling, not the leaves?

Whats happened to my garlic?

When did you plant them?  Could it be that they're ready to harvest and the leaves have died down?

The lawns are not going to get mowed today - it's too hot - and anyway, aren't you supposed to let them grow a bit longer in this sort of heat? 

I've just watered the big pots of morning glories and the fig tree, and picked some beans and courgettes for supper - and I've beaten the blackbirds to some lovely fat raspberries, and I've eaten them

 Now I'm going to sit on the sofa with a long cold drink and with all the doors and windows open and with my feet up - it's too hot out there

My Sweet Rocket is having a second flush of blooms, and late yesterday evening, just as it was getting dark, the perfume outside was wonderful and it wafted through the doors into the house

Half a dozen large free range eggs Lily.  

A small piece of local shoulder of lamb and new potatoes for our supper and some lovely cheese for later.

And for lunch - Cromer crab buttie anyone?

Wasn't that painful???????????

Right folks - have to pop up to the farm shop for meat, fruit, bread and milk, and then into the GC for bird food and hedgehog biccies

Can I pick anything up for anyone? 

Foxes

Posted: 27/07/2014 at 11:39

It might have been, especially if you used Fish Blood & Bone or similar when planting - but unless you have other signs of foxes or their scent marking I think it's more likely to be cats.

Are their any other clues - cat poo for instance?

Lavender Advice Please

Posted: 27/07/2014 at 11:35

I cut lavender back just as the flowers are finishing.  If you start when the plant is young and cut it back hard each year never letting it develop much old wood, then you can keep it pretty neat.  Otherwise the advice is to cut back about an inch from the start of the flower stem. 

I follow the advice given by Norfolk Lavender here - with over 100 acres of lavender they really know what they're doing http://www.norfolk-lavender.co.uk/pages/lavenders-for-your-garden/plant-care.php
