Thanks Steve - that's kind of you   From the photo the cut looks clean (so far).  I think stray cat (aka Flatface) probably had/has 'owners' locally but he chooses to spend his time in Wonky's garden (watching the birds that she feeds) and playing with her cat when Wonky takes her out into the garden.  She's already wormed and de-flead him so that he can associate with Harrie(t)   I'll make sure she's aware of your info re Cats Protection/RSPCA - again, many thanks

Fun in the garden is always good

Steve, while you're here can I ask, my daughter (Wonky Womble) is caring for a stray cat with a nasty cut on his face (see Hello Forkers).  Apart from bathing with boiled salt water is there anything else she should be doing (given very limited funds).  Understood that you can only give general, not specific advice.  Cheers

It's my birthday

I've already got some, but not 'giant' types - if my huge ones arrive it will necessitate a slight alteration in the planting plans in the veg patch - but I'm flexible

I agree Pansyface - it looks more like lovage than anything else I can think of - but without smelling it I couldn't be sure - and there are some really poisonous plants in the Umbellifers, so I wouldn't recommend tasting it.


Another thought is a parsnip in its second year and running up to flower?

Hi Meomye

We had a discussion about this a while back - think the general consensus was that they don't really work

I shall be out there with my fork - mind your toes!!!
