We pulled it up every spring/summer for several years and then moved house!  

Next door's landlord covered it with landscaping fabric and a thick layer of shingle. !!!

Chicky, same lad - Norwich family and UEA student  http://www.edp24.co.uk/news/obituaries/tributes_paid_to_former_uea_student_and_the_most_dedicated_of_physics_teachers_1_3646234  So sad.

I've got an exciting adventure on Friday too!!! 

What are my sunflower leaves telling me?

Is that fertiliser on the compost of the sweetcorn?  If so, that looks to be much too much!  Scrape most of it away and then give them a really good watering.  

Sweetcorn needs a lot of water and the compost looks very dry. 

I would fill those pots right up to the top, let it drain away and then do it again.  

I think the sunflowers are thirsty too and from what I can see again, if that's fertiliser remove it.  

As for the fly, I've had some similar ones on my roses - not sure what they are but possibly one of the parasitic ones whose larvae eat various pests.  I've left mine well alone 

HELLO FORKERS!
