help! my salad leaves have holes

Posted: 15/07/2014 at 23:48

I grow my salad leaves in a tray on a shelf in the greenhouse. They seem to evade the flea beetles this way. I dont think they can jump that high.

HELLO FORKERS!

Having now rounded up some more jam jars from mum (who has the collection), I can make some more blackcurrant jam tomorrow. Another bush to pick,probably about 6 pounds of fruit to go.

Trip to supermarket for more sugar, I resisted the urge to trip up the little darling belting up and down the aisles on a scooter.

Runner beans are growing, I should be able to pick some later on this week.  As kef says, a vole decided to eat my prize cucumber, but as she bought me half a dozen, there are plenty to go in the Pimms. Should be good weather for the rest of the week. Dont forget the sun tan lotion folks.

Glyn the RHS have apple identification days around the country. They need two fully ripe fruit to check.

Potatoes

The potato flowers have turned into potato fruit. These are poisonous and best removed and disposed of. They look like tomatoes but are not.
