LilyP ... have you checked your email Junk Box?  Nora may well have tried to contact you via email.  Glad the Eye Bod seems more pro-active than the last one.  

Dachalover ... my knee gave way in the garden six weeks ago and I landed flat on my face, breaking a metatarsal and  "Wrecking the Hesperis!" 

Good luck with the ear Clari ... ear pain is horrid ((hugs))

BL ... we were forecast more torrential rain today, but only had one light shower ... maybe you got it instead 

Just been watching Nadal v Muller ........... amazing match!!!

The Mods have been alerted and the tech team are looking into it .........

I hope they realise that it's extra specially important today .......... 

Thanks so much for eating my share of cake everyone  ...... OH has bought me a cream and jam doughnut for my pudding tonight, just so that I don't feel totally left out .......  

Identify this anyone?

Hi Redrag 

Unfortunately there's a glitch on the forum at the moment preventing the uploading of photos   ... the tech team are working on it ... an alternative is to upload your photo to a photo-hosting site and post a link on here? 

Broad Bean problem

Posted: 10/07/2017 at 16:02

It won't be anything to do with the blackfly ... they're aphids and don't produce maggots.

I must say I've been growing broad beans on and off for 50 years and I've never come across maggots in the beans ...

Anyone got any ideas? 

Do foxgloves come true?

The glitch appears to be something to do with some of the adverts ... which of course pay for the site ... but hopefully they can sort it soon.

Evergreen 4 in 1 - Black Grass

Mine looked a lot worse than that after I scarified  and treated it last year    It soon picked up ...

Grass is tricky especially in hot  summers ... look at the criticism the Wimbledon groundsmen are getting this year

Hosta ... methinks you were swayed by the romance of 'young love' and them setting up home for the first time .... you're a lovely big softy   (well, not so big now).

I will be careful ......... promise.

... Hosta - yes, take 'em for every penny you can.  They don't seem reasonable to me and need to learn but, more importantly, not leave you out of pocket....

 And you'll be doing their next landlord a favour   There's more than one set of Facts of Life to learn.
