Morning all   Glad you're all up and at'em now   Morning Bushman ((hugs)) for the poorly foot.

Fairy ,  I***ing done - until the next line full is dry (and I'll only do my linen shirt from that lot, not everything) and downstairs floors have been swept and the kitchen floor washed, cucumbers potted on and the first one eaten (mini patio type - delish for breakfast ) , birds fed, frogs greeted, more washing on line ........ what else?  Ah yes, cosmos deadheaded  and pots all watered.  

Now I'll have another coffee and get on with sewing up the latest knitting ... I'll be buying more wool when I go into the city to the dentist (hygienist).  Hope Hosta's out of the dentist's chair now

I think it may be due to the wet growing conditions we've had this year.  Try steaming them.

  I'm in East Anglia and I'm not moaning really (sorry) ... it's warm so things are growing, and we're getting a bit more rain than usual so I'm not having to use the hose as the waterbutts are continually being topped up ... we've got more slugs than usual   but the nematodes are arriving today ......... 

And I got loads of washing dry yesterday

Looks like you're another victim of the dreaded 'Auto-correct' Aym   -  scraping off some of the Cambrian Layer would be a bit excessive and not very helpful 

What I'm sure Aym tried to say is the 'cambium layer' - the layer between the 'bark' and the 'wood'.

Shall I do the i***ing first and then pot on the cucumbers .......... or the other way around? 

When I've had another coffee of course .......

Have given up now Pansy  ... drinking coffee and finding jobs to do ... I've got the dentist this afternoon so that's a few hours 'wasted' so I might as well get ahead now ..........
