HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 24/12/2014 at 07:04

Good morning Dd

We have good torches here - hardly ever need them but they're here just in case - I grew up in the countryside where the electricity could be cut off for days - here we're not far from the big hospital so I think we benefit from their priority if the electricity goes down

Hope your OH manages to find a turkey, or goose, or chicken, or big lump of beef, or something ....

 

HELLO FORKERS!

Good morning all

Fg   How do you struggle with your neighbour's overhanging stomachs?  Please explain - is it some sort of ancient Scottish mud-wrestling?   Does HM watch it at The Highland Games?

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

I should think it'll be the Bocking 14 strain - think it's a type of Russian comfrey.

Strap them on the soles of your shoes and stomp up and down?

Ground cover between veg?

Posted: 23/12/2014 at 14:56

I'd rather tickle around for a few minutes with the hoe once a week.  Ground cover would compete for water and nutrients and provide a lair for slugs, snails and other baddies. 

If growing something between your veg plants was ok, why wouldn't we leave the weeds?
