Discouraging Wasps

I was stung on the hand by a queen wasp earlier this week, and I still welcome them into the garden

How to look after my potted honey suckle over the winter

Or even take it out of the pot and plant it in the ground

That would liven up SM home deliveries Dove  .....

 

I think Hosta should get one - then he could get his Waitrose deliveries done without all that driving around and carrying stuff up and down steps that hurts his knee

........  I just read that Tesco have introduced a new variety of crisp - people are asking 'is this the most middle class crisp ever ?'  It's  Prosecco and elderberry ...

I think that sounds really naff and chavvy   as well as totally revolting

It's dangerous to scan-read your posts too quickly Verdun - having picked up 'Christopher Lloyd' and 'black negligee' the image in my head was ...... !!!!!!!!!!!!!

LillyP - I'm not going to the farm shop 'cos my car's waiting for an airbag sensor and it wouldn't be sensible to drive until it's fixed (although of course I'll have to drive it to the garage on Monday).  But OH works at the farm shop so I've told him to lob some venison sausages in your direction  - stand well clear in about 20 minutes


 

 

Discouraging Wasps

Wasps and hornets don't get on with each other ... but you probably don't want to encourage hornets either (although I think they're both fantastic).

The wasps are probably in your garden eating aphids - I think I'd just put up with them and be thankful that you don't need to use chemical sprays to get rid of the aphids

Pat, I think when posting someone else's recipes online it's ok if they're on a website - then you can link to that and you're covered re copyright etc.

.... You've got me worried now KEF - if that's the cause I've a feeling our iron will pack up at any moment .......

But on the bright side ... I probably won't find out for ages ...................

 

Fg, ok ... but can you wash my kitchen floor?

Good morning KEF and everyone else who's appeared whilst I've been wielding the hoover upstairs

You've got me worried now KEF - if that's the cause I've a feeling our iron will pack up at any moment

Coffee and a bacon sarnie being consumed - then I need to make a shopping list for OH to bring home from the farm shop and then I must get out into the garden ... there's a few jobs that won't wait much longer - sow the broad beans, plant some iris reticulata, pot on some violas, decide whether to stake or put windbreak fabric around sprouting broccoli or both, rake some leaves ... oooh 'eck, I think I need another coffee .......

If we had snow that settled for a while this winter I think that newly laid turf might be very unhappy
