Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends - part 2

Posted: 03/07/2016 at 13:39

Re OH's granny - we're wondering whether she travelled to Cheshire from elsewhere ... possibly to marry OH's grandfather ... no one in the family seems to know ... OH's late father was a singleton and there seem to be no paternal cousins, uncles etc who might know ........ it's one of life's mysteries.

Certainly OH's maternal granny who also lived in Cheshire didn't have the gutteral 'R;.  

Plant / weed ID

Just pull it up - it roots are only shallow - at least the seedlings are pretty easily identifiable.  For heaven's sake don't let it seed 

I wonder where it came from - any misguided neighbours (like the one we had) growing it?  The seeds catapault themselves far and wide.  

Good luck!

Good morning all   Definitely got the hang of sleeping in now ... in fact, may be overdoing it 

Just clearing up kitchen now and labelling jam.  OH has got the mower out - we had bright sunshine earlier but it's clouding over a bit ... I think there may be some rain later so deadheading must be done shortly, as soon as the coffee has been drunk and the supper vegetables prepped .......... 

I've not read back properly yet so ((hugs)) for all - just help yourself as needed ...

Hi Lantana 

OH's granny came from Cheshire and she said her 'R' with that gutteral sound, like Fred Dibnah

Pigeons vs Brassicas

If there's lots of other food about they may leave your brassicas alone at this time of year but they'll definitely return to decimate them in the winter when fresh greenery is scarce ... however don't rely on them to leave them alone in the summer ..............

Think Djokovic is suffering from 'burn out' - there's only so many goals one man can keep achieving only to have people setting yet more targets for you.  The pressure must be huge

So sad
