when do i use weed killer on lords n ladies ?plz

Posted: 06/03/2017 at 19:21

I suggest regular patrols with a good quality strimmer or brush cutter and then rake it up. 


Although to be absolutely honest I kept ponies for quite a few years and many of my friends have kept horses and ponies all their lives, and the only weeds we've ever ensured that we removed from their pasture was ragwort, and there's never been a problem.

Fairy,  you and I will have to reside on the windward side of the island to benefit from gentle cooling breezes 


Pdoc - can you investigate the possibilities of fermenting coconut milk?

Well, as long as Wonky will share her coffee and Darjeeling with me, I'm going to take a huge comfy bed, duvet and pillows   The Great Bed of Ware will do just fine

What is this plant?

Posted: 06/03/2017 at 12:23

It's called Honesty - Lunaria annua - a hardy biennial with either lilac or white flowers.  Very easy to grow and self seeds around without becoming a nuisance. 


A really pretty thing. 

Does this look good or what.

It's a very straightforward recipe and a great favourite here at this time of year

I find it takes a bit longer to cook than the recipe suggests.

Pdoc - glad you enjoyed your treat - Hockney fans here - hoping to get to the show at some time but life's a bit busy at the moment.  Glad you enjoyed Pollen St Social too - a bit pricey for us tho'.  I keep spending my money on plants and paint


BL, the shorter my hair is cut the more often it needs cutting, and it was mid January that it was cut very short so it's lasted quite well really
