Don't think it's willowherb - wait a while until it flowers

Organic Lithovit NZ

Wellington is in New Zealand, which is where the poster is - not sure whether he/she's plugging a product for commercial gain, or just very enthusiastic about it.  Maybe I'm just getting cynical in my old age.

I've not seen the product about - googling seems to suggest that it's only available to organic farmers etc.  so presumably in large quantities.

Wonky, it was only once   The second time it was the sheep getting into Eddie's wheat field when you and your brother were due at the dentist  

But still not as bad as your Grandpa's piglets getting into the Misses Bs' greenhouse on Christmas morning

Edd - glad you saw this one - right up your street

Help identifying pond plant

It was  wild celery I was trying to dredge up from the depths of my mind it was very early in the morning and not much coffee had been taken I was thinking of a wild form of a garden plant but which one, which one???

Is Water Dropwort the poisonous one you were thinking of Nut?  Don't think it's that - as far as I know the leaves of WD are more finely cut than those shown - but there are different varieties ...

Good morning Verdun

Cool and breezy here, but hoping for warmer later in the day. Looks like we're getting rain tomorrow and Sunday, so today had better be for potting on and planting up etc, and Saturday can be for the lawns ... well, that's the plan anyway

I'd better have a look at my gooseberries - last time I looked they were doing well.  Mine are Hinonmaki Yellow which are lovely and sweet when ripe, so I'll pick half of them now-ish while they're green and tart and use them for cooking, then the rest will ripen in a few weeks' time (blackbirds permitting )
