That is interesting Verdun - has anyone noticed whether slugs avoid red oakleaf lettuce and radicchio?

 

overgrown beds

Yes, those beds could really do with being quite a bit wider - then those plants would look fabulous

Green tomatoes

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

Morning Chicky Didn't mean to go to sea is based on the Orwell Estuary - down by Pin Mill etc - you can't go to sea on the Broads

The Butt & Oyster is highly recommended if you don't already know it!

Good walks along the river after lunch

What's this plant?

Posted: 25/08/2015 at 06:50

Yes, euphorbia - they self seed around a bit - they can look quite amazing in the right place. 

Be careful not to get the white sap on your skin as it can burn, especially in bright sunlight.
