Welcome to the potting shed

We've got a small wildlife pond, a bit smaller than yours but not as deep because of the tree roots, but it has a shingle beach, overgrown sides and rushes and lots of other plants.  We made it March 2014 and by last summer we had newts, frogs, toads, grass snakes plus more invertebrates and visiting insects (dragonflies, damselflies, diving beetles etc) than you can shake a stick at

It's the biggest timewaster in our garden, as we frequently spend hours laying on our tums gazing into the water

Talkback: How to ripen late tomatoes

Posted: 30/08/2015 at 07:58

I don't do that until the last minute - when the weather really turns cooler for good - I find the flavour of tomatoes ripened while still on the plant so very much better than those which are picked to 'change colour' on the kitchen windowsill.

That's not blight

From what I can see those spots are just on the older leaves - I think they're just the wear and tear of old age (it comes to us all) - they've been exposed to the sun and the wind and the rain for quite a while - they've done their job and they're coming to the end of their life - I should think your potatoes are more or less ready to harvest.
