New Weeding Tool

Posted: 09/10/2014 at 09:59

I find that a small hand fork, a small onion hoe and my fingers are the best weeding tools I've ever used.

Think Panda must've borrowed my body clock again! It's certainly gone missing from here

Good morning all from sunny Suffolk  hopefully the flooding of yesterday will have disappeared by the time we get on the road. Got to pick my car up from being fitted with some new welly boots!

Hi guys

Not allowed to grow veg!?  Sounds like the old restrictions imposed on 'new suburbs' built in the first half of the last century - No pigs or pigeons!

Bob, we don't seem to have a shortage of wasps here but I'm quite happy to send as many as it takes to Westminster to ensure that they get a proportion of stings commensurate with their 'stings' inflicted on the rest of us

Tilted garden taken over by weeds

Posted: 07/10/2014 at 19:21

Liri    Erin said that the ground was 'pretty much weed and grass free' last summer - if  live roots of perennial weeds were present then I'd have thought they'd have shown themselves.  If there are perennial weeds there now, and there weren't any before, then they've been brought in.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Fidget, that sounds absolutely amazing

I just popped into the city on the bus and bought myself a lovely little felted jacket - it's my uncle (Ma's little Bro) and aunt's 60th wedding anniversary next week, and I've just heard from my cousin that they're hoping to take them out for a meal to celebrate, and they're hoping that their bridesmaids can join them as a surprise! I was their littlest bridesmaid - only 20 months old - and I know Uncle J has always been very fond of me. I've not seen them for about 20 years; they've been living in Provence; but their health isn't good now and they've returned to the UK.

I thought I knew what I was going to wear, dark jade lacy Monsoon top, toning wideleg trousers and blue kimono-style jacket - but while OH and I were in the city yesterday I wandered through East and saw this and haven't been able to forget it ...... so I went and bought it. It looks perfect with the dark jade top, and I'm very chuffed
