Lawn - next steps

Posted: 17/09/2014 at 09:16

It looks to me as if that lawn might get quite a bit of shade - if so it would probably be a good idea to get a grass seed specially selected for shady conditions.

It's only on the front lawn and it's a recent occurrence - I think it may be NDN's young tabby male - the one whose life OH saved when he was newly moved in next door and he stole and choked on a chicken bone - NDN rushed around here distraught and thrust strange squirming cat at us.  OH wrapped him tightly in a towel and stuck his fingers down the throat and hooked out a big bone. 

There's gratitude for you

scabby potatoes

As Buddyboy says, the dry summer has increased the amount of potato scab about this year.  A bit more water would've helped, but it's too late now.  Something to remember for another year

They'll store ok as long as the conditions are good and you make sure the skins are really dry before you bag them.

Apples with marks on them will still be mainly edible - the quest for supermarket perfection is something that even supermarkets are giving up.

Definitely getting better now it's amazing how much better the new splint is - when I'm wearing the NHS one I can feel and hear my wrist 'click' but not in the new one. 

Have a lovely time in York - haven't been for years - I should remedy that
