It's 'that time of year' for slugs - large examples of Arion rufus are out there on my lawn at the moment .......... in pairs

Green tomatoes

The only thing I can think of is to move them into a cool corner - are they in pots?

We're not going away until late September by when hopefully most of ours will be ripe and eaten or roasted and made into sauce etc.  The last few will hopefully be attended to by our kind neighbour

While on the subject of Sweet Woodruff - a German friend has lots of uses for it - particularly Maibowle - a sort of sweet punch flavoured with the woodruff and drunk in spring.

Morning Chicky Didn't mean to go to sea is based on the Orwell Estuary - down by Pin Mill etc - you can't go to sea on the Broads

The Butt & Oyster is highly recommended if you don't already know it!

Good walks along the river after lunch

What's this plant?

Posted: 25/08/2015 at 06:50

Yes, euphorbia - they self seed around a bit - they can look quite amazing in the right place. 

Be careful not to get the white sap on your skin as it can burn, especially in bright sunlight.

Good morning all  

Well, the antihistamine eased things, but I had to wake up a couple of times to reapply it. 

Evening Pat ........ well they're bigger than rabbits!!!

Pdoc - Hope it's easing up

We have sunshine   but I don't know for how long ........... this morning I'm popping over to see Snoodle and her little one, drink coffee and take some plants from Nut and Fidget that I've been fostering since the Bressingham trip. 

non-flowering clematis

Give them plenty of Clematis fertiliser in the spring and again a few weeks later, and make sure it's well watered in.  All clematis are hungry plants, and the summer flowering ones with big flowers are really really hungry.
