Another courgette problem

Posted: 19/07/2014 at 06:36
So do mine - now that I'm at home most days I'm making a real attempt this year to keep them nice and damp at the roots to see if we can avoid it, but yes, mine have that beautiful lacy silvery pattern on them ... and all our courgettes are yellow

Hmmm, the storm had stopped and the rain had almost stopped, but we've just had another big rumble of thunder - Norwich is at the convergence of two rivers and quite often storms here seem to follow the rivers and go round and round and round and ....

Bee hives, all our bees are in bee hives, on combs, which are cells in wax.

Thankyou Dovefrom above, I have checked out the bumblebee conservation website & discovered that my bees are forest cuckoo bees. As you suggest, cowslip2, they will raise their young & leave. Meanwhile I will be ensuring any visitors to my plot steer clear of the compost area. The bees are very happy spending their days on the rosa rugosa which is flowering like mad at the moment. I'm afraid I don't know the answer to your query nutcutlet but would be interested to know. are we able to post photos here?

Glad you've identified them and can work out a way of living together 

To post photos on here you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post, and follow the instructions to upload a picture - afraid it doesn't work for phones - yet
