Yes ................ but there were lots of pests that over- wintered too - many more slugs and aphids than usual for lots of people. 

There's a lot to be said for a proper cold snap

Hope all goes well at the salt mines folks 

Rotting courgettes

Posted: 04/08/2014 at 07:35

The immature courgette is behind the female flower - if you have the immature courgette there must have been a flower, but it sounds as if they're not being pollinated - it's often this way when the plant is young - it should start to improve soon ......... fingers crossed

Oooh!  I was just thinking about this - getting excited now 

Let's Remember Them

I shall be thinking of the grandfather and uncle I never knew - they returned but so damaged mentally and physically.

I shall also be reflecting, as I frequently do these days, on why countries are so rarely led by people who understand how to live peaceably. 

HELLO FORKERS!

Fg  I shall tell my friend.

Now I shall settle down and watch Deacon Blue in Glasgow - I met some of them once as they sang at the wedding of friends in Gourock.  Long time ago now....

See you in the morning folks - sweet dreams 

A few random questions...

I'll deal with the rhubarb   Just leave it to die down - in the autumn all the nutritional content of the leaves will travel back down the stems into the roots and crown to be stored as energy ready to grow next year  

Mulch around the crown (not over it) with well rotted farmyard manure - that'll feed the crown too.
