It's saving grace is that it's relatively shallow rooted and so is quite easy to hoick out 

HELLO FORKERS!

Hello again folks - it's been cool here all day but I did get the washing dry and did pot on my Begonia semperflorens and the Fuchsia Hawkshead went into a bigger pot until I decide where it's going to live. 

Panda, glad you've had a good day

Yes - Himalayan balsam - I lived next door to someone who grew a plant - it's all over the street now - it catapults it 's seeds with a sort of coiled spring contraption - they catapult them over high fences and walls.  Total nuisance 

Plant identification please

Flax

The flax (aka linseed) flower follows the sun and then fades.  There'll be new flowers in the morning.  If you can get there  very early when the morning sun is still very low in the sky you'll get some amazing pictures

Hi Rebecca,

i just chop it up into cubes and put in the freezer.  Then when I fancy some I poor some out into a dish, add a spoon or two of sugar and microwave until bubbling.  If summer, add yoghurt.  If winter add custard.  Super speedy yummy desert.  No effort at any time!   Can also use it once cooled a little to turn plain yoghurt a into rubbarb  yoghurt. 

I love it like that for breakfast, sometimes with a sprinkling of granola or muesli too.
