Moving into a house with Foxgloves?

It is the new function of the tabloid press and Jeremy Vine - to spread alarm and anxiety about everyday things to stop us getting worked up about things that really matter, like working for world peace!

Oh dear KEF ((hugs))


 

Bit fed up but always a silver lining......

Sorry to hear you're fed up Verdun - it must be awful counting the days until the emmets leave and some proper people arrive in Cornwall for their holiday

Don't know whether I'll be watching Love your garden - may have to record it as I'll probably be watching the athletics recorded overnight.    I must admit, last week's LYG was head and shoulders above the earlier programmes

Fibre-glass switchers - your personal experience please

Posted: 25/08/2015 at 08:11

Good morning Verdun - enjoy that walk - I love autumn morning walks

Good morning Wonky   Tell Pa Womble to bring some waterproof sealant on his next visit!

Have a good day!

It's 'that time of year' for slugs - large examples of Arion rufus are out there on my lawn at the moment .......... in pairs

Green tomatoes

Posted: 25/08/2015 at 07:39

The only thing I can think of is to move them into a cool corner - are they in pots?

We're not going away until late September by when hopefully most of ours will be ripe and eaten or roasted and made into sauce etc.  The last few will hopefully be attended to by our kind neighbour

While on the subject of Sweet Woodruff - a German friend has lots of uses for it - particularly Maibowle - a sort of sweet punch flavoured with the woodruff and drunk in spring.
