HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 05/08/2014 at 19:42

Hello folks 

Gorgeous day at Cromer - I've been there so many times, several times a summer every year since I was five - I don't think I've ever seen the sea so calm and blue - absolutely glorious.

That being said, despite taking along some very smelly bacon, and purchasing top end crab fishing equipment, they all managed to avoid us   the only answer is, We Shall Return!!! 

Very good cod and chips eaten, plus icecreams and cold drinks.  Postcards and windmills purchased.  The windmills are to keep Peabrain away from the broccoli - haven't I mentioned OH's friend, Peabrain the Pigeon 

Hope people with poorly tums are better soon 

So what should we be doing with our grass right now?

I'm near to Norwich and our front lawn (west facing) is a delightful shade of cardboard.

To apply enough water often enough to make a difference would cost a fortune (we're metered) and be unethical  in my opinion.  I'll happily water our veg - I'll even water the flowerbeds and shrubs because they will die without water and they cost me a lot of money, but the lawn ........... as soon as we've had a bit of rain it'll all green up again - I remember the Great Drought of 1976 - lawns soon perked up when the rains came.

Don't cut, don't feed, don't water .............. go to the beach instead ............ your lawn will be fine 

Advice on new tree please

Oooh the world is your lobster   I'm going to go away and think about this - we're taking niece to the seaside - in quieter moments I shall contemplate trees and come up (hopefully) with my ultimate choice - see you this evening 

HELLO FORKERS!

I'm not  fruit tree expert, but feeding every week sounds excessive to me - what are you feeding it with?
