Good morning all   G'day Pat 

Re the Begging for Syria thread - Nora did take their thread down yesterday - they've started again piggybacking on the earlier thread about the tv programme.  I'm sure Nora will take more action today.

First day back at tennis today ... hope my shoulder holds up ... I shall be very careful with my service action.

Chicky, I know what you mean about the radio

Hope you've got plenty of room in your compost bin PP - we nearly filled ours just using the rake on our little front lawn!!!   I had to use goggles, the dust was a bit grim as we've not had proper rain for months. 

It's been really hot and sticky here today, and I've been baking ... I made this using the pattypan squashes from the garden.  It's a fantastic recipe - so moist and full of flavour, yet still really light.

We also had pattypans for supper - I made this  - a bit different and very tasty - highly recommended.  

Now I've flollopped on the sofa - that's me done for the day - see you in the morning folks

Scented geraniums cuttings

Cutting just above a leaf joint when taking the cutting off the plant means that you don't leave a snaggy bit to die off on the plant.

Then, on the cutting, you cut across as Verdun has said, just below a leaf node.  

This will cut off a spare bit of stem which you discard.

Eaten?  How?  Holes nibbled in them, or whole beans gone?  

If some of the vines are dying, are they getting enough water?  Here in East Anglia we've had a very dry couple of months.

I agree - I can't see anything that looks like JKW in any of those photos.
