HELLO FORKERS!

Morning Archie, morning Lily - have I said good morning to Bekkie?  Morning Bekkie 

Haven't seen Fairy since 29th June - I imagine she's busy in her garden - virtually 24 hours of daylight up there at the moment 

Plant feeding

Fertilisers designed for tomatoes will contain the nutrients that encourage flowering and fruiting so can be used on plants that you want to flower shortly.

It's not a good idea to use them on young plants that are still in early growth, or on foliage plants or leafy vegetables. 

Talkback: Mullein moth

They'll be pupating underground - think it'll take quite a while before they appear as moths, according to Wiki it can take up to 5 years, but I don't know how reliable that is

Woody, that's sad ... but I suppose even hedgehogs have to die sometimes - I once found a dead one in the gardens at work - on closer inspection it looked as if a baby had got stuck in the birth canal - I suppose it happens

Morning KEF   Maybe your hedgehog is busy with 'maternal' things and not wandering quite so far at nights at the moment?

Good luck with the power bill - I think I'm reasonably intelligent (ran two businesses, have an MA etc) and I can't make head or tail of 'em 

HELLO FORKERS!

Oooh yes - Clari....

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields. 

HELLO FORKERS!

Good morning Woody  , if you'd like to get the hoe out on my front border you're very welcome

I think the organic -v- non organic question probably deserves a thread of it's own

If the people of Africa could grow food for their own consumption, rather than intensive flowers and vegetables to be exported to Europe to pay for their countries' trade deficit, acquired by them buying weapons that the west tells them they need in order to maintain the status quo which was imposed on them in colonial times, they would be more able to feed themselves. 

 

Whoops!  Good morning folks   Another beautiful morning here in Norfolk!

It looks as if we had hoglets in the garden last night - much smaller 'evidence' on the terrace 

The magpies were so cheeky first thing this morning, they stood at the open door and shouted at me until I tipped out the bits and pieces the hedgehogs hadn't eaten - that's their treat every morning. 

Now there's some very angry blackbirds in next door's garden, shouting the odds - probably at next door's cat!
