Bit fed up but always a silver lining......

Sorry to hear you're fed up Verdun - it must be awful counting the days until the emmets leave and some proper people arrive in Cornwall for their holiday

Don't know whether I'll be watching Love your garden - may have to record it as I'll probably be watching the athletics recorded overnight.    I must admit, last week's LYG was head and shoulders above the earlier programmes

Fibre-glass switchers - your personal experience please

Posted: 25/08/2015 at 08:11

I have no experience with the fibreglass switchers - I've always found the traditional birch besom to work perfectly well for me.

An observation.....

That is interesting Verdun - has anyone noticed whether slugs avoid red oakleaf lettuce and radicchio?

 

overgrown beds

Posted: 25/08/2015 at 07:53

Yes, those beds could really do with being quite a bit wider - then those plants would look fabulous

HELLO FORKERS!

Good morning Verdun - enjoy that walk - I love autumn morning walks

Good morning Wonky   Tell Pa Womble to bring some waterproof sealant on his next visit!

Have a good day!

It's 'that time of year' for slugs - large examples of Arion rufus are out there on my lawn at the moment .......... in pairs

Green tomatoes

Posted: 25/08/2015 at 07:39

The only thing I can think of is to move them into a cool corner - are they in pots?

We're not going away until late September by when hopefully most of ours will be ripe and eaten or roasted and made into sauce etc.  The last few will hopefully be attended to by our kind neighbour

Sweet Woodruff

While on the subject of Sweet Woodruff - a German friend has lots of uses for it - particularly Maibowle - a sort of sweet punch flavoured with the woodruff and drunk in spring.

some recipes here http://spoonfulsofgermany.com/2015/05/09/mays-sweetest-herb/

I can vouch for that particular strain of Sweet Woodruff Fishy - does very well in my dry shade
