Hello folks   Just popping in to let you know that Pa died peacefully this evening.

I'm going to do mine next week - they'll start off on the kitchen windowsill then go into the little lean-to greenhouse.

I start them off in pots in the cold frame or mini greenhouse and plant out - when I plant them out into the garden I cut the top and bottom from plastic bottles and use the resulting 'sleeve'  to put over the plant to keep slugs off them - they love them when they're young and succulent - fortunately as they get bigger they grow little bristly hairs on the stems and leaves and that helps to keep the slugs away when they're too big for the plastic bottle 'sleeves'.

Don't panic

Is it possible that a dog or a fox has urinated on the lawn?  That's what it looks like to me.  Canine (particuarly bitch) urine will scorch grass.  There are things you can do to help, but time will deal with it - the thing to do is to stop it happening again, if at all possible.

No need to pinch out those calendula - they look fine to me - put them in the cold greenhouse

Just love Bodmin - we stayed in an idyllic little cottage there just off the edge of the moor a few years ago - got woken around 3am by a nightingale in the garden
