Morning Hosta and the rest of you   Queen Josephine looks a bit of a stunner. 

Looks like we're back to the 'good old days' elsewhere I've flagged stuff up to Daniel and the Mods - hopefully nothing will flare up too much before they've had time to have a look.

PS - morning again Wonky - have a lovely day and take care of yourselves ((hugs))

Hi Justin

I prick my seedlings out when they've got at least two true leaves (not the first pair of seed leaves).

I have a long shady border - several varieties of Clematis alpina are very happy there, flowering their socks off at the moment

Oh dear - sorry to hear that   Perhaps it's a good thing that I'm quite behind with my veg this year.

Are the french beans done for?  If so, sow some more quickly - plenty of time for them

I usually wait until after the longest day to sow pak choi, then it doesn't run to seed so readily.

Onwards and upwards

Good morning all

The poor garden looks a bit bashed about by the wind, and we've more rain on the way - we do need it, the pond is still low - but I could do without this wind.  Hope everyone's gardens have survived - my broad beans have been bashed about a bit

I'm heading down to the Suffolk coast this morning to visit Ma - hope she's better than she was when brother visited at the weekend - she was very muddled and didn't want to go out for a push to the pier or anywhere - such a shame as it was a lovely day.  I've got her a stick of Cromer rock - she's always had a sweet tooth and I thought it might bring back some happy memories - fingers crossed

Hope LillyP's family are sorted - I'm sure they'll be fine with the Russians
