Good morning Chicky 

I didn't tell you all about my near miss last evening did I?  The phone rang and other things happened ........... well, I decided to go out with the camera and get some pics of the Sum & Substance hosta leaves with raindrops on them - and there I was behind the pond snapping away, not just the hostas but the ferns and the pulmonarias  etc, then I turned around ................ have I told you I've got a dodgy knee that sometimes feels as if it's going to bend the wrong way and drops me on the ground? ...................

I was on that narrow strip of grass between the Shady Bank and the pond ................ there was nearly a big splash!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Fortunately I managed to grab hold of the sleepers on the edge of the bank as I dropped to my knees and I managed to keep myself and the camera out of the pond!   I came indoors with very muddy jeans - OH laughed when I told him what nearly happened  but he did say he would've come and pulled me out 

I got some good pics tho'

There's an idea - a brace of ferrets!!! 

how much water for my tomatoes

Posted: 08/05/2014 at 21:23

I only water when the soil is dry and the foliage is starting to flag.  

Overwatering causes the perfect conditions for fungal growth and blight.
