Thanks Fidget - that was fantastic - niece and I were transfixed
I'm not fruit tree expert, but feeding every week sounds excessive to me - what are you feeding it with?
Clari - I suppose you have access to pumps if needed
Fishy - the board does that to spacing etc, but the scansion is there when you read it
A lovely, moving poem ... thank you.
Fine - will lob it in your direction around 12.30 ish Just the one? What about your OH?
Sandwiches or salad KEF?
I'd volunteer to drive, but it can get a bit cramped for adults in the back of my convertible, unless you're happy to travel with your legs around your necks
Karools! That's brilliant - I hope you had a wild celebration
I'd dig the soil over and sow my green manure direct into the soil. It can then be turned over and incorporated into the soil, improving the structure, when the time comes.
I see no reason for laying cardboard and coir over garden soil.
I'm not an aubergine expert, but this site may be helpful http://www.bakker-irl.com/product/aubergine-halflange-violette-/
It says "....Harvesting period August - October. In a greenhouse from June.If the aubergines have fully grown and can be pressed in slightly, they are ready for harvesting. Harvesting is done by simply cutting the fruit from the plant with a sharp knife. ...."
The picture on this link indicates that they grow to a good size http://www.ranzijn.nl/nl-nl/catalog/gazon-en-gewassen/zaden/groenten/hortitops-aubergine-halflange-violette-103757.aspx
Hope that's helpful
