Yes links are fine (as long as you're not advertising your own business - which you're not )

Turnips (woody)

How long since you sowed them?  They do get woody if left too long. They ought to be ready for pulling from 6 -8 weeks. 

Can you please id this

It looks like one of the mallow family - lots of them, shrubs and smaller flowers, both wild and garden plants. 

Have you scattered a wildflower or butterfly mix of seeds in that area?

GraveAngel - I'm on another forum which has some members who live in South Africa and who enjoy gardening - I'll show the picture to them and see if they recognise it, if that's ok?

We don't get a lot of slugs in this garden, but on Friday night the few slugs we have chomped their way through our Pak Choi - last night I sunk a couple of plastic pots into the veg patch, just sticking out half an inch or so, and put an inch of Adnams Broadside in the pots - this morning two fat slugs had passed away in a drunken stupor 

I recommend it!

HELLO FORKERS!

It still doesn't feel warm enough to go out into the garden - it is of course - if I put a jacket on - but there's nothing urgent that needs doing out there and I've got half a dozen duck eggs to use, so I think a sponge cake might happen this morning 

Dreaded blackspot - rose resistence?

This website http://www.classicroses.co.uk/products/roses/ tells you whether or not a rose is disease resistant.

Invicta is a cooking variety so in my experience the fruits don't soften much - you could pick some now and leave some to get a bit riper. 

Garlic

This is OH's garlic - neither of us have grown garlic before but a friend is a garlic farmer - he leaves his until it's yellower than ours, but I'm going to pull one from the garden next time I need to use some garlic and see how it is.  Love using 'green garlic' anyway

Me too -  the garlic patch is ear-marked for some purple sprouting broccoli that needs moving on ....
