I've seen it sometimes, not sure why, it doesn't affect the taste of the beans so I've ignored it - I think it only happens on red-flowered beans.

Returning to the slugs on the lawn - on damp mornings in late summer/early autumn we often find pairs of Arion Rufus, a large red slug, entwined on the lawn in connubial bliss.

 We leave them to it and they make they way back to wherever they came from - they're good guys - they eat the smaller slugs that eat our plants.

Panda - have a lovely time 

After a heavy supermarket session I've done lots of watering and lots of sitting around with my feet up this afternoon   I think I may even have shut my eyes for a moment.

Supper will be jacket potatoes, local Barnsley lamb chops with mint sauce, roasted courgette and yellow french beans  

Pdoc - I've discovered that the best thing to do when taking a car to the garage is to make sure you have a bottle of water to drink and a good book to read, and try to regard it as leisure time - if only their seats were a little more comfortable.

Decking .... the perfect way to encourage rats 


We have a little woodmouse who lives behind one of the ashtrees - he sometimes comes out and gets some of the hedgehog biscuits
