OH wants to know if December 21 is a new season as she has only had 11 this year.

I'm on the floor in tears and it's not funny

What should I do with the frog under my floor?

Posted: 08/12/2016 at 23:02

Tadpoles hatch from many eggs.
The froglet grows a tail and legs.
Froglets tails will disappear.
Then it's all frog, that is clear!

They soon switch up to understand.
Your house is in such demand.
Perhaps you do not understand.
That nature is now in command!

It's all your fault you have the choice.
The flower beds or damp basement.
You took too long and made no choice
Us frogs you must obay.

Edd the unrhyming poet!

He did not know it.
The unrhyming poet.

Its all about mystagogue and timing. (apparently)

I think I have just mastered it.

New lawn going brown

Posted: 08/12/2016 at 21:59

A bit of Aeration and scarification should do the job, for next year.

If it drains well and you have no moss then I see no reason why you should not have a perfect lawn next year. Not keen on weed killer but Verdone should get your lawn back, once the growing season starts. 

Epsom salts will help with the rest.

hi all   lots of what  all say is right   but for me the garden  for a better way of saying it is that it keeps you alive and keeps you fit nice fresh air wild life have a rest when you want a cuppa put fir on listen to radio2 or classic can not go wrong (we have broccoli/ carrots /toms/sweede in freezer ) as well as some fresh in garden still  as for the idea that there is nothing to do in winter plenty and in green house don't you belive it   ( the veg and fruit is a bonus) and flowers also     Michael

 michael mpc  Do you realy live in DURHAM!!! (we have broccoli/ carrots /toms/swede in freezer )

So does iceland!!! and most of us but a good cuppa and radio2 or classic in the dales will not cure the lack of shops or the lack of mining! Tata steel my arse (what about Redcar). Try building without concrete.

Hayfever and gardening as a career

Bee witched says:


We sell our surplus honey from the end of our drive, and quite a few people buy it because they say it helps them with asthma / hayfever.

We filter the honey to take out the odd bee wing etc ... but a lot of pollen ends up still in the honey.

Shop honey from the big suppliers is likely to be filtered to within an inch of its life .... and also heat treated  ... so not much of the "good stuff" makes it into the jars.

The theory is that by eating local honey people are taking taking tiny amounts of pollen from the area they live in. 

Unfortunately this is not going to help you Rubyleaf as bees do not forage on grasses, so no grass pollen will be in honey.

Good luck in your career.

 Can I ask for your spilt natural honey please. You know the stuff that is dropped between the hive and the collection jar and is not saleable?  The stuff that is not pasteurized and not for Sale!!!

PS. Do you also spill whole milk as well.

Agreed!  BobTheGardener. Unfortunately it's hard to get rid of, if ever.
