Strange male courgette flower parts

Posted: 16/06/2015 at 08:24

There are apparently some 'self-fertile' varieties of courgette - I've not grown them myself, but googling reveals several examples.

No Dove, you acquired seeds at Barnsdale, remember?

I'll pack a small plant in the snowdrop bulbs. Expect a parcel this week. Is there somewhere  shady it can be left if you are not in?

Ah!  Light dawns and memory begins to  creak into action - but don't think they got sown - I'll have to look in my seed tin  - it's been a funny old year    I'm working on getting things back on track (until the next hiatus) so thank you, that would be lovely   Yes, the postie leaves packages in the shady corner behind the clematis - we've got him well trained

WHAT IF.........

Good morning all   Went AWOL last evening - OH and I felt we deserved supper out so popped to a neaby pub - lovely food but service veeeeeeeeery slow!  'Relaxed pub atmosphere' fine in the pub bit, but not in the food bit - oh well, it's walking distance and another time if we're in a hurry we'll just make a bit of a fuss - but around 30 minutes between finishing main course and getting our pudding???  Just as well we like talking to each other

Fidget   I think I must have killed off the cephalaria - no sign of it   A few things got a bit neglected what with broken wrist last autumn and Pa's demise this spring .. but it would be great in the sunnier bed I have plans to create this autumn

Paulk2 I agree, I've asked many times for people to put some information in their Public Profile - location, soil type, the size and sort of garden they have, hat size, inside leg measurement, favourite sandwich - that sort of thing.  So few people do it, and yet it would really help to answer their questions.

I'm in several pictures of group outings, but because of the work I did my avatar stays as it is -  it's Dove by Picasso ,if anyone's interested 



Any idea what this is....

To post a photo using a pc, upload it from your camera to the pc.

Click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where your type your post. 

That brings up your Computer files and you can Browse through them until you find the image you want.

There will be an error screen in between which you should just close by clicking the X in the top right corner, then just wait and your pic should come up will take a while depending on the bandwidth of your connection.

Good luck - if it doesn't work for you give us another shout!
