Flat green bugs on tomatos

Great site Bob! When she was little, oldest daughter used to love holding the little green shield bugs we get here . Now I know why it took her so long to walk home from school.

nut- I'm definitely getting brave. A couple of night ago I went out when it was dark to lock shed etc and there was a large-ish brown/orange moth stuck inside the tomato house. I opened the door  and gently caught it and steered it outside! Didn't cry or anything!

Morning all. Not on here last night as I was too tired. Outside till about 7pm and got lots done- it's slow, tiring stuff but I'm getting there.

Rain here and to be damp all day and wet tomorrow so it'll help get the new plants established. 

fidget - Verdun will tell you he trains the dog but.....

chick- pix please!!

BL- hope the eyes are better today. Very painful and frustrating too.

Normal? Normal??? I'm completely normal - my analyst has been telling me that I am for years....

 Hover- good to see you back.

If I'd had that kind of reception on joining - I would never have come back and I would have missed all the lovely, kind, helpful people on here - many of whom are like a little  family. I hope you continue to ask questions - and continue to enjoy gardening. It's what most of us here do with a few breaks for chat and cake!  

I've always said to my children- it's the intelligent people who ask questions-  after all, it's how to find out the answers. Good luck with your tree.

Some of the big Miscanthus are a bit like that - like sugar cane. Could it be something like that?

Well -  I read loads of books on playing the piano but for some reason I can't do it as well as Elton......

Bye Dove.

Morning all. Just going to work soon too. 

Hopefully get out later and get on with more digging etc.

We didn't really expect Governments to tell us the truth did we?? 

Catch up later. Hopefully there'll be some nice posts today instead of the nonsense some of us witnessed last night. 

Good Evening FORKERS
